This was a great spot! Private and even on New Year’s Eve, we didn’t hear anything from another campsite. The creek at the front of the property was fantastic and it was nice and close to delicious wineries. Also saw a resident wombat!

Only thing would be the track to the campsite was pretty rough, so definitely consider this if you don’t have a larger car and plan on doing what we did and leaving the property often to explore the region.

Would recommend if you’re looking to get away and relax! Such a lovely spot and the hosts were great to deal with.

Thank you for staying with us, it was a pleasure to host you. Thank you for mentioning the track. It is a farm track though some rocky paddocks, and we do do our best to keep it clear for you all. We consider it a 1st gear track - a chance for visitors to slow down and enjoy the views!

Nice, rural bush land with incredible views. The creek for swimming, toilets & washing ups basins were particularly useful. Bright 1hr drive which is a huge bonus! Friendly hosts, who also understand the need to have some peace and quiet without disturbance.

Fabulous way to spend Christmas. Stewart and Gayle were so friendly and welcoming. The camping area is 3km into their property ... uo over and around several hills ... that why it was so beautifully quite and remote. Great views and great birdlife. Firewood is supplied as well as water to extinguish them (as an active firey, I was very impressed). Toilet was spotless. Looking forward to returning. Cheers. Peter 'n Karen

Were moved from Cosy Site 3 to The Hut site due to cattle grazing on Cosy Site 3, but The Hut was amazing. Freshly mowed (thanks Stewart & Gayle) and the views were breathtaking and spectacular. Stewart & Gayle welcomed us on our first day and provided priceless information on dirt track drives which we took advantage of. Had a swim in the chilly waters of the creek on the property, overall it was a wonderful stay. Thanks Stewart & Gayle

What great campers! Traecy and her group are every host's dream. Great people, considerate campers and a friendly dog. They were flexible with our last minute change and so appreciative of our efforts. They make hosting worthwhile.
