Bring the family and friends for a secluded and private wilderness experience surrounded by 60 acres of forest. This totally separate wilderness camping paddock sits within our organic permaculture farm property where we grow fruits, veggies, nuts and flowers.  Set up camp in the shade on a gently sloping 2 acre paddock all to yourself - as we are only offering one site listing situated about 1 km from the main farm house and completely surrounded by forest. 

 A genuine wilderness experience with forest (tree) bathing, spring fed creeks and total peace for you and your group very close to Melbourne. You can hopefully spot our resident platypus and kangaroos, wallabies, echidnas, wombats etc. There’s also abundant bird life including lyre birds and eagles.

Explore all the Yarra Ranges has to offer including a short walk to Shiprock Falls. Grab a coffee or pizza in nearby Gembrook and checkout some farm produce from your hosts before you leave.

We have added a composting toilet, a drinking water tank and a bush pole shelter with kitchen sink, gas for cooking, phone charger ports, lights and hot water to a private shower.  We have an adjacent fire pit area with seating and tables to be added soon.  Most of the materials are repurposed from another property or scavenged from our forest.

We hope to see you soon.

We really enjoyed our stay at Shiprock Farm. Kylie and Rob are lovely hosts who are going to quite some effort to make their property as comfortable as possible for their guests. Since we first visited, they've installed a shelter, a fireplace, a composting toilet and a water tank.
The site is a large, undulating, cleared area of approx 200m x 50m, surrounded by bush on all sides.

A pretty spot surrounded by forest. Was a lovely relaxing stay and enjoyed checking out the nearby waterfall a very short drive away. Rob is helpful and doing a great job adding useful amenities.

Absolutely everything about this campsite is perfect - total privacy, fab compost toilet, great location and superb communication with the hosts. We felt really lucky to have found this place and would have no hesitation recommending it to others. Thanks Rob and Kylie for hosting us on your beautiful property, and we’ll definitely see you again soon!
