Our 20-acre exotic fruit farm backs onto World heritage rainforest and provides a relaxing base for which to explore the wet tropics south of Cairns. We have a beautiful freshwater swimming hole down the road, and also the Mulgrave River is very close if you want to do some fishing.

The camping area is large, grassy and reasonably level, with space closer to the tree line, and space more out in the open. There is a firepit provided, and plenty of firewood around the place for you to help yourself to. We also welcome four-legged family members! 

We have had recent sightings of cassowary on our property so keep an eye out, you might just see one!

We prefer self-contained campers, who have their own amenities, but we do have a toilet and shower up at the main house (about 50 metres away) you are welcome to use if needed. This is an unused bathroom downstairs so you will still have privacy. 

Access into the property is not suitable for large motorhomes. Entry will be too small for vehicles approx 8.5 metres long and 3.5 metres high.

We grow exotic fruit on the property including limes, pomelos, mangosteens and more. When it's in season, you're welcome to sample some! 

Gordonvale is the nearest town, with a quiet historic charm, just 15 minutes drive away, while Cairns is around 25 minutes.

This little "no fuss no thrills " hobby farm has sufficient lawn areas for tends and small to medium size caravans. The entry to the farm is a bit narrow with big rigs like mine 21.5 ft and it takes good navigation skills to get to the spots. The phone network system is unreliable (0 to 1 bar) with occasional data connection. Chris kindly offered their WIFI which works closed to the house. Water and power is available with a super long hose and extension lead allowing one appliance at the time. You can read about animals and hosts in previous reviews (all good). We stayed 4 nights and felt very well looked after.
The ride into town took us 1/2 hour.

We had a good experience.
Hospitable owners.
Reasonable price for a private powered campsite . Grateful for letting us use their spare toilet and shower under their dwelling. However, it is not for a fussy camper as the place needs a lot of TLC.

What a lovely little picturesque spot. Enjoyed three nights here it was very quiet and the owner was very accomodating. We enjoyed sharing the campground at times with horses, bandicoots, kangaroo and was visited by Roxy the dog. It was also great to be able to have a fire at night and enjoy the serenity.

Small grassy campground with lovely shade trees. I was able to hook up to power and use the toilet and shower under the main house as I am not self contained. Nice and quiet with chooks, dogs and resident friendly horses. Easy drive into Gordonvale. Lots of cane trains at this time of year which my host has just qualified for driving. Beautiful views of Walsh’s Pyramid over the cane fields and the surrounding rainforest covered hills.
