Come and enjoy our peaceful slice of the thriving Bellarine Peninsula! 

The Top Paddock is the most secluded part of the property and offers nice sheltered camp sites. Perched near the highest part of our land it has the best view and offers intimate access to protected native vegetation. 

Whilst it's the furthest area on the property from the beach, the beach is still very accessible via a 500m scenic walk. Alternatively, take a short walk up the hill and enjoy a great sunset with the beverage of your choice!  

Also nearby is  the Indented Head boat ramp, as well as the general store/post office which sells coffee, beer, wine and other essentials,

Campsites have no amenities so campers need to BYO everything (including drinking water and camping toilet) and leave no trace.

We are dog friendly, and kids aged 5 or under are free! 

Please use social distancing practices when interacting with other guests.

Great hosts, excellent communication, made us feel very welcome. Lots of space and great location within easy walking distance to the beach. Easy access and lots to explore around the Bellarine peninsula.

The camping at shacks was so peaceful and relaxing. We always enjoy the bird life that flies over the camp site every day. There is plenty of room to spread out without disturbing and other campers and the beach is only a short walk away.

Large grassed area with hay bales which help block the wind, a private and quiet camping area. Easy access to beach, walking tracks and local shops. Bonus is that the area is dog friendly with fences.

Such a peaceful site - we love coming here. There was a huge flock of black cockatoos that flew directly over us this time - perhaps about 50 of them.

Fire pits are provided by the hosts. Even the puppies were chilled at Shacks.

We loved the site which was flat open and spacious. Nice short stroll to beach for early morning sunrise.

We booked in for Easter and whilst there decided that we wanted to get away again the following week for Anzac Weekend so spoke with Damien and extend for another full week which was no problem at all.

Great host’s and Great Off Grid camping with the benefit of being on a private manicured site/property.

Loved this place and will be back again. A couple of other campers on the site as well, but everyone had heaps of space and still felt very private. Short walk to the beach, perfect weather and clear starry nights.
