Hogback is a 2000 acre nature refuge and run as a cattle operation, emphasis in sustainability, in native forest. This property is the perfect getaway, and a photographers dream, you can do as little or as much as you like. The seasonal creek draws the wildlife to the area making this a birdwatchers paradise, sit back and watch the wedgetail eagles soar as the red-tailed black cockatoos serenade the afternoon away.

Set up camp, listening to the babble of the brook. Caravans are not able to access these sites - you will need to be in a  4WD vehicle with high clearance only (tents/swags) or have a camper trailer or similar. 

Due to the remote location we encourage hosts to have extra non perishable foods with them, in the off chance you would like to stay longer or the weather extends your stay.

Please have own amenities and leave no trace. Campfires are permitted when fire bans are not in place - please check with us first.

A fantastic place to bring the family and the 4 legged friends (on leads as this is a working property). We also have a small barbed wire paddock available for horses by request. BYO horses and yards available at RV sites only.

We look forward to welcoming you to Hogback.

Please note there is no mobile reception - except up the hill.

No toilets. BYO amenities and leave no trace.

We really enjoyed the peace and quiet of Blodwen’s place at Hogback Creek, the campsite by the creek was perfect for our setup, we went horse riding on the second day and loved the experience Blodwen gave us.
All and all we will be back and look forward to catching up with Blodwen and Col

A great spot to completely escape into the bush. On a huge mountainous property you can find your own little slice of bush to hide away in. Horse riding trails are fantastic.

This was our first time staying at Hogback and it was the peace and quiet we hoped for and the site was shady and clean. And our hosts were welcoming and friendly.
We’ll certainly be going back.

Thank you Blodwen for a great back to nature experience. Eveything was as you said and i thoroughly enjoyed my days there. Really loved robbing your lemon tree on my way back to camp after my long hikes and enjoyed the few chats we had. I would definitely recommend your place to anyone that really wants to get away from it all. Best wishes to you
