This property is located in beautiful Scotsburn, a short 5 minute drive to Buninyong and only 15 minutes from Ballarat CBD.

There are two dams on the property and both are suitable for swimming, fishing or just relaxing around. Regardless of which site you select please feel free to walk around the property and go to whichever dam you prefer. 

There are three areas designated to camping. The land is undulating and flat areas are limited, please see each site description below to determine which is suitable for your needs. You will also be sharing the paddocks with my 3 ponies and 2 sheep, please let me know if that is an issue and I'm more than happy to put them in my back paddock 😊 . Also you may get a visit from my dog and cat, who it turns out are highly social..... again, if that is an issue please let me know.

Site 1 is situated on top of the hill and has panoramic views, this is site is suitable for caravans, camper trailers and motorhomes but will require some levelling. Not being completely flat this site is unsuitable for tents.  It is approximately 35 mt from the top dam.  

Site 2 is located about 15 mt from the bottom dam, sections of this site have recently been levelled and this site will suit camper trailers and tents.

Site 3 has also been levelled and is approximately 25 mt from the bottom dam but can be a bit of a 4wd experience if there has been rain. Again this would suit 4wd campers or tents.  If the site has become unsuitable I will let you know and we can discuss alternatives.

Price is $30 for the 2 people and $10 per additional guest, up to 5 guests per site in total.

*Please also note that there is a strict Noise Curfew between 10pm and 7am, and at other times please be considerate of other campers.

*Friendly pets welcome. It may be possible to close up some paddocks if you would like to bring horses, please contact me to discuss.

*Unfortunately during fire restricted periods you will not be able to have a campfire.

Jenni is a lovely welcoming host. Very personable and happy to share her picturesque property with visiting campers. We had a nice quiet relaxing stay, it's great place for pets, our old greyhound (a reluctant camper) even had fun playing with Jenni's dog Charlie! The dam is a great spot for dogs and humans to cool down on a hot day. Will definitely be back.

Jenni greeted us on arrival and making us familiar with the property and amenities.
A wonderful host ensuring we had adequate shade for high heat days.
The property itself is picturesque and the dams were swimmabke. Plenty of area to wander on-site and close to mt buninyong walks and Ballarat.
Thank you Jenni for having us!

Absolutely beautiful property. The view is gorgeous from the top of the hill, the dam yielded some big yabbies (we let them go). The amenities where clean and tidy and to top it all off - Jenni was a great host. Couldn’t have asked for a more relaxing trip. My greyhound seconds this review - she had a fully fenced paddock to run and run and run.

Thanks you to Jenni for being such a friendly host. Staying at Tranquility close to Ballarat was very relaxing and quiet, great camp site with view & dams to play in. My dog had fun checking out the friendly ponies and sheep. I look forward to visiting again, thanks you Jenni

My second stay at Jenni’s property. Such a great place to relax and get away from it all. The he property is beautiful, the facilities are a bonus and the host, Jenni couldn’t be more helpful and accomodating. We organised the fencing so my dog could run for acres without being on a lead. Definitely recommend.
