Fig Tree Hollow, as the name suggests, has several huge fig trees nearby (one with climbing bars fixed at shoulder height in 1996 and now almost out of sight). Echindas have been spotted here, as well as the Richmond Birdwing butterfly.

We loved camping at Fig Tree. The campsite was private, peaceful and beautiful with great views. Perfect if you love camping with dogs like we do, as there is heaps of room for them to run around and play without getting into to much mischief. Heather was not able to be there to guide us to the site, but gave us clear directions before our arrival.

The only thing we didn't like about the campsite was that it is on a slope. This would have been handy to note in the ad, so we could pack a better solution to level out our camper.

All in all, we had a great weekend escaping the big smoke and if you are looking for a camp where it's just you and nature, this is the one for you!

Response from Heather, the Host, on April 28th, 2022

I'm sorry that that happened to you, but it is a good example of the need to read ALL the instructions and rules. It is written in 3 places in the accomadation section, that "vans may need levelling". As was the rule that you were not to take wood from the property for your fire.

We thoroughly enjoyed the secluded camp spot on Heather's property. It's the perfect place for peace and tranquility. The creek at the bottom of the hill was bubbling along and perfect for a cool off paddle, too.

I loved my stay the campsite is in a lush green valley with views of the hills. Its a great set up with a fire pit and shadey tree. Its very private and peacefull pluss if you follow the atv trail up the hill it leads to a spectacular view of the mountain range and valley below,I recomend going late afternoon. The owner is lovely I just feel bad as I only stayed one night and they had to mow the entire drive in and pad just for me but i do apreciate will be back again.

Perfect weekend away to get away from city life and reset. The kids had a great time exploring the large valley with our dog. Nice quiet spot, and a large fire. Exactly what we were after. Thanks for sharing your beautiful property!
