The Mountain View campsites are near our facilities with power also available. 

There is a gorgeous broad open view with a large shady oak tree and a variety of picnic tables available. This is a great spot to watch the donkeys while you camp, with everything you need at your fingertips. This is a broad flat area where the sites can be spaced apart for privacy, or clumped together if you are a group.

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 70kg

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

The campsite is perfect. Watching the sun set over the mountains, while the donkeys came over for a pat and sitting around the campfire. The facilities are great and Linda Jay was so helpful and in contact to make sure we had everything we needed! There was another small group / family camping here so plenty of space for everyone. We can't wait to go back for another weekend!

What a beautiful location! We pulled through the gates and were greeted by the donkeys, super a friendly! The surrounding mountains gave the most stunning views to wake up to in the morning.
We brought our little doggie and he loved meeting the donkey’s and a morning play with the owners dog. It was great! Would highly recommend!

Thanks Linda for a lovely stay!

Beautiful property with stunning views from every campsite. Linda was so wonderful she has thought of everything here (washing stations, amenities). Her donkeys are amazingly friendly and are always up for a pat or a photo. Linda was also more than accommodating for our dog. Would highly recommend all Hipcampers visit Linda for a stay

We adored our stay. Even though it rained just about the whole 3 night stay, we packed the right clothing for our 2 young girls and felt so at peace amongst the donkeys in their paddocks surrounding us and the misty mountains. Wow. The donkey sounds were amazing to hear in the middle of the night! Like a dinosaur or something - so memorable for us all. They were super friendly too and Linda taught us so much about them. We loved the babies!
The cute bathroom facilities made camping off grid in our van a lot more pleasant too.
Make sure you visit Linda’s donkey shop too. We bought our girls a gorgeous soft toy donkey each.
My favourite thing about our stay was Linda, the lovely host and property owner. I really loved getting to know her and hearing her stories.
We definitely want to return!! Would love to be there on a clear night to see the stars with a fire and a guitar.
Thank you Linda, your property is so peaceful and such an amazing soul-reset far from suburbia.

It was really nice experience. Our first time to try farm camping. The site is large with good view. The toilets are clean. Linda was friendly and nice. We’d love to camp here again.

Our family had a wonderful weekend at Linda’s place. The serenity! Magical views. Misty mornings. Sunny afternoons. Lovely walks on the property. Basic but extremely clean and cute facilities. Linda went out of her way to help. Roosters and donkeys do give an early wake up call for some camp sites, but that suited us fine. Thanks Linda. We will definitely be back.

Friendly host and astonishing view. Although we did not have a chance to interact with the donkeys much due to the rain, a really pleasant stay overall.
