We chose a hot couple of days to stay, but the cool breeze on the ridge made the heat bearable. Nice views. Access to water made it easier. Lovely place very close to Melbourne. Hope to come back in Autumn!

Absolutely loved staying at Stumpy Tail Ridge. Beautiful quiet location, easy to get to and loved having power and water on hand. The dogs had a ball running around too. Can't wait to go back.

So glad you and the dogs enjoyed their stay (you could've stayed longer-we didn't get rain for another two days), please come again soon!

Beautiful place to camp! The site was flat, private and well maintained. The hosts were very helpful providing all the information to help us settle in and the signage around the property made it easy to find our camp, they even left a light on to help us set up in the dark! They kindly allowed us to feed the sheep which were so gentle. All round great trip, I would highly recommend.
