The Plateau exceeded our expectations. Nicholas was very welcoming upon our arrival, giving us a map of the property to explore with our 4WD & also drove us to our private site.
The views from the plateau were exquisite and we will be back in the future to stay at the plateau & explore the property, next time in the dry!
We loved how the hosts encouraged us to contact them if there were any dramas, however they left us be at our private & secluded campsite.

Wow! What a grate place to camp.

Thanks to Nick and Liz for sharing your property!

If you are all set up to free camp with your own toilet, shower and drinking water then check out this site.
We spent three nights here and loved it. So peaceful we never even heard another human never lone saw one.
Only living things we saw were Roos, Birds and Cows.
We were lucky to have ‘The Girls’ come and visit each night. Cutest cows ever! We miss you 378 😂

We will be back to try more sites!

Let’s all respect Nick and Liz’s property so they can keep letting us camp there!

Another great long weekend at Risdon Stud!
Such a peaceful property and so well arranged that you never see or hear any other camp groups.

We saw several possums at night, wallabies in the mornings and walked down to see ‘The Girls’ in the next paddock.

Karyn and I can’t wait to come back and try out a few more of you campsites.

Nick and Liz are fantastic! Knowing that we had been before and were happy for us to get right on with setting up and relaxing!

See you again soon.

Absolutely beautiful property and lovely hosts. A proper retreat away from anyone the world and a great farm with rich history to explore where you can be yourself unencumbered by rules . Nick and his family could not be more accomodating and we will certainly be back when we get the chance

The plateau was absolutely stunning, loved the camp site and the wildlife. Nick and Liz were so welcoming and showing us their amazing property. Spent the next day exploring and finding some amazing old buildings and the railway tunnel. Would 100% go back again.

100% recommend.
You don't need a serious 4wd to access the site, and the views are gorgeous. It was a bit windy but from my experience that's the price you pay for 360° views, just rug up and get close to the fire 👍
They have more sheltered campsites on offer and no matter which you choose the privacy is outstanding, you'll never hear or see another soul from your camp.
Highly recommend checking out the Mordor track, I got up in high range 4wd without a lockable diff or any wheel spin (dry conditions) and the views from the lookout words cannot describe.
Can definitely see myself coming back.

Thanks Liz and Nic for sharing your beautiful property and for being fantastic hosts! We had a wonderful stay and so enjoyed the peace and tranquillity! Definite highlights were exploring the caves nearby, climbing the “Big Mountain” to take in the 360 view and enjoying huge campfires each night…just brilliant! A special thanks to Nic who led us safely on a 4WD adventure off the property at the end of our stay due to the river being flooded and unsafe to cross - a exciting end to our stay!!! We will absolutely return!!!

Could not recommend this any more strongly! The hosts are lovely and the property is absolutely gorgeous. Me and the dog went for about 5 or 6 different hour-ish long walks without seeing another person the whole time we were there. Lovely place to go for a bit of solitude. Unbelievable that it's as cheap as it is.
