I had the best experience staying in Hessy. The caravan itself is adorable, with great retro styling throughout. The bathroom facilities are great and very modern. But the absolute highlights were the picturesque views and friendly animals roaming around the property.
Karen was more than accomodating with anything we needed and always greeted us with a smile. Would definitely stay here again, can’t fault it!

I loved my time spent on Hessy the Retro. Karen was so welcoming and ensured we had a great stay. I especially loved the alpacas! Would recommend!

Hessy was a beautiful, affordable experience for my sister and I. The caravan was very spacious and had a lot of storage options for our food. Thank you Karen for the fan (it was very nice at night when we closed the windows to stop the bugs) and beautiful view of all the farm animals. I would 100% go back, the view was AMAZING and we got to know all the farm animals... the goat even hopped in the boot!!! Got a lovely sleep as the beds are super comfy and were two single beds perfect for me and my sister.

Lovely spot with beautiful views to the mountains and curious animals.
We made friends with goats, horses & alpaca’s 🙂
We gratefully received a fan that was delivered to us as the temp was in the low 30’s.
We did a rail trail (Brooloo to Imbil) walk (9km return) which was lovely and at Imbil there were Sunday markets and a yummy bakery!
A nice stay for a long weekend.
Ps. Sorry we were late checking out… stopping at the markets slowed us down. ☺️

Such a cute little caravan with everything you need to really get away. Loved sitting on the deck watching the alpacas (and the baby one!). We had a great time and would definitely recommend staying.

Loved it! Such a cute retro style caravan, feels like your living life in the 70s. we didnt even need to bring any of our linen or cutlery even portable gas stove cause karen supplies it all. Bathrooms are super clean and modern style. We enjoyed a nice campfire and a bbq. Great view overlooking the valley, and animals. Would definitely be coming back again 😊

Stayed at Hessy for two nights over a weekend.
Karen was a great host and very welcoming giving us some apples to feed the roaming farm animals on site, who are all well natured.
The space is very private with stunning views. Hessy had everything we needed, cookplate, toaster, kettle, linen ect. and definitely has some 70's charm. Having the modern shower block is a treat.
Thanks Karen, see you again soon!
