SO - thats why the calendar has done a "gate shut" till Spring.

Look please check out The Stables On Knox - I know its a skyrocket well past what you were planning to $pend, but, hey - its roof is solid - no tent pegs (bad joke... sorry) - gather another couple - split the cost .... just a suggestion... otherwise - see you very soon in Spring "our lovely hippers" - we loooove you <3 <3 

*********************************************************************************************

Spring 2022...... 

Welcome to your private "Upper Stargazers Paddock" (as recent guests called it on their inaugural adventure) solely and exclusively!  For previous guests - this means you venture past the houses and the old site (sorry, I know, people have moved into the house now - anyways), head on through the bottom gate, down the embackment, over Dry Creek - skirt the southern boundary cypress pine tree line as you ascend through the gates into the far western paddock BEHIND the cypress pine tree line to the north. 

What does that mean for you? Peace, privacy, kangaroo watching and bliss time with exclusive use for you.  The same as last year - we only have 1 booking at a time - and once you've booked - its yours! (And theres still full 4G and 5G coverage. )

The downside bit - here it is - it means we are very weather dependent - and vehicle dependent.  4WD and 2WD vehicles and 4WD caravans will successfully navigate the rural terrain in dry conditions.  

If there has been 20mm or more of rain - conditions will dampen and may temporarily prevent access. Sun dries the ground easily and so when the rain stops - one sunny day usually clears it up - sounds like a song lyric! Anyway... back to your booking decision making... look - if you are concerned at this point - message us please... we can back n forth privately... 

Whilst all this sounds a little precarious - and it can be - the rewards are greater. 

The opportunity of a fully private camp site encapsulates - no people, no road noise and no visible buildings, houses or structures for as far as you want to look.  Partial views of the neighbors dam - depending on where you want to park yourself, are rather serene. 

We still open the gates (and our socially distanced arms) for you in your self-contained RV/caravan/camper - just note access considerations of course. 

There is a 1/2 44 gal drum fire pit area, with low seating on logs for approx. 12-15 people. Firewood, coffee and muffins delivered to site - see Extras when booking. There is still a lot of fallen gum, pine cones and dead fall under all the trees - so fossick around - its cheaper and good for the soul. :)

Pets welcome however please refer to property rules around this. 

If this is all too much and you feel like a treat - check out "The Stables On Knox" listing for a bit o lux ;)

What doesn’t stand out about Jo’s land - it’s unbelievable. The serenity, the peacefulness, the privacy - it’s a dream camp out for people that want to escape the hustle and bustle.

You feel completely spoilt having the opportunity to camp at Jo’s, with a paddock all to yourself, and absolutely no one in sight.

You will not regret booking - I promise!

Thank you so much for your kind words Nadija! We had a lovely time hosting you both and the beautiful kids. I've talked about Lxxx a lot since also. We have 8 chickens now - so we hope you'll back for Chapter 2 when the weather warms up.

Jo and Mike were great hosts and beautiful people. The property is amazing and we did not expect to have so much room and privacy to ourselves!! We thought we where the only people on the planet! They really looked after us and our little fur baby and made us feel very welcome. The coffee and delicious muffins in the morning where amazing. We will definitely be back!!! 10/10

Loved the peace and quiet of having a whole paddock to ourselves surrounded by trees. The camp fire set up is so perfect! Lots of space to set up a perfect camp and still have room to run around with our dog. Jo and Mike were lovely hosts and made us feel very welcome. Jo makes a lovely coffee and the eggs were delicious and fresh.

Home away from home, is the only way I can describe my experince 🙌🏽 Most private camp, beautiful drive to our campsite from the property, massive play-around space and full of stars in the night 🥰
Jo and Mike were extremely helpful, from giving us some extra free food to helping me with blowing up my mattress. Amazing knowledge and skills😅😉 See you next time!

I had an amazing time at Jo's places, it's such a beautiful and secluded camp site nested in a massive property. And meeting Jo was definitely the highlight of the trip, she's no doubt the most welcoming host I have ever come across, her kindness and generosity really have made my solo camping trip an unforgettable one. Will surely be back again.

We had the best time! The camp site is surrounded by gorgeous pine trees it’s really private, not a person our house in sight. We were lucky to be there on a clear night and the sky was absolutely breathtaking! Joe is an incredible host and we can’t wait to visit again!
