The View is a gorgeous little campsite that offers AWD access, a bush camping setting and beautiful views. A great little spot for a couple or group of four. From here you can hike down to the river to enjoy a day of fishing or swimming or just spend the day enjoying the serenity and taking in the beautiful 360° views. What more could you wish for?

Watton Airstrip is a stunning property, nestled on the banks of the Macquarie River. You’ll share our spaces with kangaroos, wallabies, emus, echidnas, deer, platypus and more.

Enjoy some optional extras, including Tammie's home made bread, farm fresh, free range eggs, or one of our range of grazing platters, home made jams or hot chocolate kits fresh from our friends at Sophie’s Staples. Or pamper yourself with a Crystal reiki session, or tarot reading.

Lie back in your swag at night and let the star struck, velvety sky envelope you, or make a booking at the nearby Bathurst Observatory to see the stars up close.

Fish or swim in the river, ride your bikes, or set up camp and then head off on an adventure to the Goldfields at Ophir, or History Hill at Hill End via the Bridle Track.

Fires are allowed (fire restrictions permitting). Wood can be collected from fallen wood around the property, or bring your own if you prefer. 

We welcome self-contained campers who bring their own camping toilet/shower and water. You must have your own amenities.

Pets are welcome for a one off fee per animal. We do ask that pets are supervised at all times and that they do not interfere with farm animals or local wildlife.

Excellent Hipcamp. I went with a mate and my 2 dogs and definitely recommend. This is my 4th Hipcamp place I have stayed at and it’s the best one so far. Definitely order the fresh bread from Tammie it was delicious!

The View site was incredible, easy to access (easy dirt/gravel) on my motorbike, spectacular sunset and amazing view to wake up to. Tammie was very attentive to my messages and helpful in selecting the right site for my motorbike access, helping to chop and change bookings with next-to-no notice by me. Damo is a dead-set legend who greeted me onsite with a smile and a great chat.
Site was clean. They were OK with me flying my drone to get some epic shots of my motocamping setup too.
Full points, highly recommended.

Amazing panoramic view at "The View" campsite, the perfect spot to stargaze on a cold winter night. Damien was super friendly, although didn't get a chance to say hi to Tammie but managed to give her a big wave as I was leaving the place. Definitely will be back!

Fantastic location. Private, and 360 views. Nice walk down to the river (so worth going down there walking down the trail). Probably one of the best if bot the best sites I have been to.

Damo went out of his way to introduce himself and check everything was ok. So friendly. I love the vibe all around. Great people, great place. I almost want to keep it a secret to be honest

Camping at the The View was fantastic. It was serene with plenty of birdlife. The site is very level and great for caravans and tents with an absolutely brilliant view down the valley just off the end of the site.

Tammie and Damien were great and welcoming hosts. Would love to visit again one day.

Fantastic place to camp with outstanding views and complete peace and quiet. Numerous wildlife with emus, kangaroos, owls at night and just a wonderful place to put the feet up and relax. Close enough to Bathurst to get supplies if need be and yet far enough away from others to enjoy the isolation. Highly recommend and far better than staying in a campground. Easily accessed by 2wd and could still drive down or walk to the river. We only met Damien when we arrived yet great host and an all round lovely guy more than happy to help if any problems arise. Five stars from us and we’ll be sure to be back
