This is an operational sheep farm. Our farm is in the shire of Boyup Brook located in the picturesque Blackwood River Valley of South Western Australia. "Booyup" refers the Aboriginal term for "place of big stones" or "place of big smoke". 

Rich and fertile soils made up of granite and red loam with a high rainfall during winter months, provides an ideal environment for natural sheep farming methods. We pride ourselves in raising our sheep and lambs as naturally as possible in an ideal low stress herd environment with abundant grassland and pasture to graze on.

You will have unrestricted access to walk or run or cycle the farm of 200 acres. No motorised vehicles sorry (our ewes are lambing). Also observe seasonal fire restrictions. The farm borders on the Nollajup Nature Reserve. The Blackwood river can be access for fishing or kayaking from Boyup Brook (8kms) or Bridgetown (25kms). The WA Country music festival in Boyup Brook or the Blues festival in Bridgetown is A MUST. Don't forget the rodeos in between.

Relaxing few nights camping on Deon's sheep farm property. Nice views over the farm, shady trees,
Peaceful, no sounds except for Birdlife and sheep. A good place for a camping getaway from the city.
Nice bush walk right next door to the farm; Nollajup bush reserve.
Small town of Boyup Brook is a 15 min drive.
We stayed on the Easter weekend, there were 5 other groups of campers, but they are situated away from each other, out of site, at different campsites, behind trees, which is good.
Dion is friendly and our experience was very positive (first time users of Hipcamp).

Great camp site. We stayed at number 2. Right at the back and found it a great spot. Surrounded by trees. Plenty of firewood. Quiet. The sheep came to say hello but prefer the open grass. Which is just metres away. The sheep walked through the grassed areas several times and stayed around for a few hours mid morning. The nearest campers can be seen through the trees but are a sufficient space away. Boyup brook town is 5 minutes away with the Blackwood river and walking trail. Bridgetown is about 20 minutes away, also with the Blackwood river, bakery, IGA, cafes, pub, museum etc. A great base for exploring the area at a good price. Dion's communication following booking was very prompt and helpful. Would recommend this camp.

We are not giving a low review. We loved the place and it provided exactly what we wanted for our Easter holiday. We will likely visit other areas of Western Australia for future holidays.
