Flat, grassed paddock with plenty of room, great for groups of families and/or friends! We offer two separate sites, with capacity for up to 20 people on each, with plenty of room for several vehicles. The sites are walking distance to our tranquil dam. 

The property is located adjacent to the Lavender Federation Trail, Eastern Adelaide Hills so makes a great base for exploring the Lavender Trail. It's also just 20 minutes from Monarto Zoo and half hour drive to Mannum.  

If you are interested, you're welcome to come and look at our organic permaculture garden which includes worm farm, composting and compost tea. We aim to close the loop via recycling, and recycle our food scraps and local organic waste. 

Please note, campers need to be self-contained, with their own camp toilet, and take all waste with them. 

Pets allowed, but kept on leash. Campfires permitted in designated areas when fire bans aren't in force, and firewood is provided. Please bring your own drinking water, but you are welcome to top up near the house if need be. 

There is a nearby dam that is usually empty.  It does not have childproof fencing so families and parents please supervise your kids.

Rob’s property is the perfect place to get away from the hustle and bustle - there is plenty of room even among other campers and the views are beautiful. Rob is a friendly and helpful host. We went for a walk around the property which treated us to even more beautiful views, and you’re close to some smaller heritage packed towns you’re likely to miss if you only stick to the freeway! We would happily stay again :-)

Rob had been an excellent host for sure! He was really welcoming and friendly. His farm had some excellent views from the top of the mountain especially in the morning. The route directions were as clear as they could and easy to understand.

Nice secluded spot for camping., down in a gully surrounded by rolling hills. Rob is a friendly Host.
If we had a complaint; Prickle grass was a bit high but I'm sure it us not like that year round.
We would like to return sometime

Beautiful land, very hospitable host.
Could benefit from a little more 'camp site' though (i.e better campfires, more distance between camp sites, better access to lot, better firewood).
8/10, would camp here again.
