This is a level accessible site, with a lovely view. Suitable for multiple tents or campers. 2WD access except after heavy rain. This site is just below the oak tree, and is the nearest site to the two dams. (please be aware of the proximity to dams if you have little children) 

Goannas are often seen in the trees near the dams in the warmer months.

The beautiful retro bathroom facilities are included in your booking. 

Iron Brook Donkey Farm is located on rolling hills of mountain pasture, backing on to the Yarra State Forest. Bushwalk along the little creek among tall trees and majestic tree ferns, or just sit in a deck chair and take in the exquisite views at the top of the hill. Multiple tracks head through the Yarra State Forest where you can wind your way along dirt roads through to Noojee, Powelltown, or Reefton, each of which have a cosy pub at the end of the drive. 

The donkey farm is situated conveniently, halfway between the popular redwood forest, and the giant Ada tree walk. Just chill in your own time, or book an activity or a donkey ride. Donkeys can take riders up to 60kg

We do allow pets, but this MUST be discussed with us prior to booking as we have strict rules around this. We also allow campfires only when fire restrictions aren't in place - which is often all summer. 

Children under 3 are free, but for insurance purposes, please mention them in the comments.

This property has an overall capacity to ensure that our number of visitors remain low. This not only ensures that campers recieve the space and peace they look for in a campsite like this, but also so that we can ensure the bathrooms can be kept clean and not overloaded. This is also a part of our COVID safe plan. 

Due to this overall capacity it is important that you book for the number of people that you intend to have stay, as while we try to accomodate increases to booking numbers, they are not guaranteed unless booked. If we have met overall capacity then we may not be able to approve increases to booking numbers. This is for the comfort and safety of all our visitors. Thank you

Very peaceful stay at a beautiful spot despite the constant rain. Linda was a terrific host and made the whole exercise really easy. I will return with the kids for some donkey rides in the future. Thanks Linda.

A great property with lots of options for campsites to suit your needs. Linda was really helpful. The donkeys and goats are gorgeous and Linda is passionate and informative about all her animals.

Linda is a lovely lady with a beautiful property in East Warburton. She met us on arrival, showed us where we could camp and spent time talking to us about all her amazing animals which we were free to play with. excellent hospitality and can highly recommend staying here. Thanks Linda!

Warm and welcoming. Lovely to meet the Donkeys goats and pony. Even shower and loo has a nice touch of old world charm. Close to the city and the lovely Yarra River is just down the road.

Awesome spot with beautiful views and peace and quiet. Exactly what we needed to de-stress. Linda could not have been nicer and the donkey experience was truly unforgettable for my son. Would love to return.

Stayed here for several nights as a group of families. Most of our children were under the age of 5. The site has great views, is spacious for cars, campers and tents, and was in our own section for ourselves, yet close to the toilet/shower facilities (which were clean and spacious).

As with all the other reviews, Linda was a great host. She was fantastic with the kids when they went for donkey rides/pats and was very friendly and accomodating.

Will definitely come back and stay again.

A lovely property nestled within the ranges - with spectacular views of the mountains.

Visiting with the donkeys is a serious highlight, they are super friendly and Linda is a wealth of knowledge.
