This property features all the elements required for a camping adventure. Located on Bruny Island on an open paddock in a bush setting, you will have 60 acres to explore or relax in complete privacy. Arrive here using Sealink Bruny Island ferry. and take the Blinkbonny Rd Turn off traveling for approx 500m from the corner. 

The campsite is best suited to self-contained 4WD campers who must bring their own toilet/shower facilities, drinking water and supplies. Pets on leashes are welcome. Campfires are permitted in the dedicated firepit.

Take a stroll down to the beach and have a swim in the turquoise coloured water at Little Taylor Bay, or explore the bush and look for spotted par-ado, swift parrot, sea and nesting pair of wedge tail eagles, hawks, plovers, honey eaters, wrens, herons, brone wing pigeons just to name some of the birds.  We also have a few of the famous white kangaroos, plus lots of smaller wallabies. 

There are good trails for hikes and mountain biking at the Mount Midway Forest Reserve and Mount Bruny Forest Reserve. Don't miss out on the Cape Bruny Lighthouse Tour - built in 1836, it's the only heritage listed lighthouse open for tours.

What a beautiful spot. Secluded, quiet and very well maintained. Awesome fire pit and Roger even provided wood, how great! Spot is large and protected from the wind. Wish we could have stayed longer. We will be back.

We absolutely loved our few days here. It was peaceful, private and so full of birds and wildlife - including a white wallaby! Our host left firewood and a fire pit for our use and suggested the most sheltered spot to camp (gale force winds elsewhere on the island but our spot was perfect)
We would defenitely stay here again and recommend Rogers bush camp for anyone who loves camping under the stars, watching birds and enjoying a really special quiet spot on Sth Bruny.

Glad the birds came around we get quite a few of the parrots, plus the two eagles that nest on the top paddock sometime sit in the dead trees not far away,
