Sunbury is named after a previous sheep property we used to own. This grassy site is nestled along side our seasonal creek with the beautiful morning sun giving way to the shade of the large gums early in the afternoon.

We stayed at the Sunbury for three nights. This is a lovely spot with some great views. We were there with another family and we both enjoyed the stay. There were other families close by and they were all well distanced. Plenty of wood for camp fire too. There is a very nice cafe and a pub in Moyhu(the town which is like 10-15 mins away). Highly recommend this camp site.

Such a great spot with incredibly helpful hosts, away from everything but only a short drive to some beautiful wineries. Camp 1 was very private and could only hear the cows occasionally moo-ing. Looking at the other camps as we left we would have been happy in any one of them. Beautiful countryside, we will be back.

Camp 1. How's the serenity :)

If only we had longer. This spot will be a go-to for us from now on. Incredible views, the sort of spaciousness you can only dream about when camping, clean toilets, and plenty of dry firewood to keep you cozy. Thanks Lisa! Can’t wait to return.

Great place to camp! Picturesque location along a running stream. Great views with morning sun, hills in the distance and shade in the afternoon. All sites are on a well maintained grass field. As it was a quiet period, Darren offered us any site, so we stayed at Gembrook. There are large piles of firewood for the fire pits and the toilets are clean and not too far away. Lovely morning sun and afternoon shade. The weather was perfect with frogs. owls and running stream to see you off for the night. Highly recommend the site, and look forward to returning.

We had a great time at this beautiful site. Free firewood provided was great and we loved how peaceful the campsite is with really well spaced sites. Recieved lots of good reccomendations from the hosts as well. We would love to return sometime

A good spot to explore King Valley, we stayed here when it was extremely hot, so drove to water holes along the King River to cool off. Darren was a great host. Always keeping us informed about the weather and fire restrictions and tips about where to go for a swim!!
Toilets kept very clean.

We had a wonderful time at Ellimatta over NYE. Hosts were easy to communicate with and very welcoming / accommodating of any requests. The property and toilet amenities were well maintained and Darren was very helpful in directing us to the best local swimming spots and places to visit. Local pub in Moyhu had great food served by friendly staff! Our camping site at Sunbury was furthest from all other sites and felt private and secluded. Highly recommend staying at Ellimatta if you are thinking of visiting King Valley area.
