This site is accessible by WELL SET-UP 4WDs only. Please read through the entire description first and then send through a message with your make, model, modifications, and tyres. We do not accept instant bookings and must asses your vehicle's capability to reach the site prior to accepting any requests. 

Gumtree Summit is a steep 300m climb from our house on what can be VERY slippery clay soil after a rain. It is a flat, well shaded, and large camping site that is completely private with stunning sunset views. You will not see or hear any other person during your time here. There is a private long-drop toilet with an excellent view and non-potable water is available via a gravity fed IBC. Firewood in the form of deadwood is plentiful and available for collection by campers easily with a saw, Silkie, or chainsaw. 

The property is best enjoyed for it's peace and quiet, stunning views and abundance of wildlife. For the adventurous, you can drive or hike to a beautiful set of private rock pools. At the right time of year, these are suitable for swimming but are otherwise great to bring some brews and sit in.

The base site cost is $40/night for 2 people and additional people are 15.00 per person per night. The maximum occupancy is negotiable but all guests MUST arrive and leave together. Infants under 1 year are free. All pets are welcome. Our cancellation policy is 24hrs prior to check-in so please KEEP AN EYE ON THE WEATHER leading up to your stay. 

Please note, you must enter a gated property to access your site and we must meet and greet you. This is a working miniature galloway stud and we have many farm duties that we must attend to, so we request that you provide an ETA of arrival on the day and also call us using the phone number on your booking confirmation when you arrive.

Amazing campsite up the top of the hill, it has great views, flat ground and fire pit.
You are surrounded by heaps of nice trees for shade but also that let the sun through.
Definitely need a decent 4wd to get up the hill especially when wet.
Jeremy and Charmaine were great hosts and super helpful.

Jeremy and Charmaine have created an incredible place to relieve the stresses of life. The campsite has a flat area and one of the best thunder boxes I’ve ever used. The view is stunning and there is plenty of wood laying around to make a descent fire. Take heed of their warnings, you’ll need some experience and a good 4x4.
We will definitely be back. 5 Stars

Simple camping, perfect way to unwindThe view from the looThe old thunder box, the perfect way to start your day.just beautiful.
