Working Cattle farm with Eco friendly outlook that is very isolated with no traffic or neighbours. Choices from sloping grassed blocks overlooking our 7 acre lake available for kayaking, fishing and watching our resident swans. 

Campers will need to be self sufficient with their own toilet/shower facilities and must take all waste and rubbish with them on departure. Campfires can be arranged upon request with your hosts.  You will need to have levellers for these sites.

BYO and join us at happy hour for a game of pool or darts during your stay. We love a home-brewed wheat beer, ginger beer and creaming soda beer after a hard days work. 

 We offer use of our kayaks and canoes and the chance of meeting and feeding the calf’s, cows or horses around the farm.  

Just 5 mins down the road is one of Australias most historical bridges “The Dickabram” built in 1885/6 over the Mary River, check it out and then continue on for a counter lunch at the Historical Theebine Hotel. 

We are centrally located for day trips to visit the Mary Valley, Gympie or down to Tincan Bay. 

 Head off in the other direction and explore the Kilkivan Shire museum, the Mount Clara Smelter built in 1873 (left over from the gold rush days) or follow some of the old stock routes and horse trails. 

 Heading north your just 20mins to Tiaro or continue on to explore the home of Mary Poppins in Maryborough.  David grew up on the property as dairy farmers and bee keepers. He bought the farm in 2006. 

David & Kim grows beef cows and breed Rottyhill Rottweiler's Miva QLD. Rosehill is a eco friendly stand alone powered farm and request you respect our back to nature, simple farming solutions and leave a zero footprint when you stay with us.

Fantastic spot by the dam. So serene and spectacular views. David provided wood and a fire pit. He and Kim were exceptional hosts…..happy hour lives long in our memories 😊😁….and all communication with them was precise, punctual and very friendly. We hope to return to Rosehill and thoroughly recommend this camp site and camping experience to everyone. Thank you David and Kim fir our very enjoyable stay.

Hosts were lovely and very helpful . Campsites set up away from each other so peace and privacy were guaranteed. Kayaks and firewood provided free of charge which was greatly appreciated. Cows visited during the night which kids really enjoyed seeing their mum run for the hills!

We loved camping at Dave and Kim's property, it was a really beautiful bush setting. We had a secluded camping spot down next to the creek. We couldn't see or hear anyone else except for the birds and trees. The creek is shallow but enough to swim in, so it was great for the kids to play in. Dave and Kim let us borrow their kayaks as well and were really friendly. There are no toilets or showers so you need to pack this all in and out, but did not bother us at all and is a small price to pay for total seclusion in nature. Would definitely recommend to other people who are looking to get back to nature without the large crowds of campgrounds.
