Sites 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, These sites are suitable for camper trailers, tents, rooftop campers, pop-top caravans, tents and swags.

It is set among natural bushland alongside a dry creek bed,  with shade from tall eucalyptus trees approximately 200m from the Moore River. There are swings to enjoy amongst the trees and fire pits available for your use.  Not 100% privacy but you can strategically set up for better privacy. There is a tap for potable water close by. Warning- there will be some onlooking cows and sheep! 

Sites 6, 7, 8, 9, 10: These sites are more suitable for larger caravans and motor homes. These sites are situated in the centre of the farm among natural tall eucalyptus trees. You will have fire pits around to use, a swing available for the child within and a tap available with potable water. On these sites you are able to see across open farmland with views of the amazing sunset. This site is approximately a 400m walk away from the Moore river.

More details;

At Gums n Gully Farmstay, you can either provide your own shower and toileting facilities and be fully self sufficient on your site OR you can add the outdoor bathroom at the homestead to your booking for the duration of your stay. This is located approx. 800m from the furtherest campsite, so you will need to drive up to the homestead.

You can camp close-by to farm animals and star gaze at night around a campfire. Please note: Campfires are only allowed during the fire season in allocated fire pits. Firewood is available for purchase when booking so you can have your woodpile ready for you when you arrive, or you are welcome to BYO your own firewood.

Things you and the kids can do on and around the property; explore, and photograph wildlife, bush and wildflowers, hike along the river banks, paddle or swim in the river, swing on one of the swings provided amongst the trees, feed the chickens, stargaze from your campfire, go for a nocturnal nature walk or just relax on the shore of the Moore River with a picnic. 

Access to Campsites- All our campsites are now accessible by 2WD after extensive road work improvements. There is one steep hill to drive down when going to your campsite, caravans and other heavy loads need to be aware of this when entering.

Campsites available:

OFF SEASON- From November 2021 to March Long Week-end 2022 we will be closing Gums n Gully for our Off Season. Unfortunately with less rain over the summer period the fragile terrain can not cope with too much traffic driving over it. So to preserve the natural beauty of Gums n Gully Farmstay we have decided its for the best. We hope we see you all in 2022! 

We like our campers to enjoy our peaceful surrounds we only allow the silence of solar power and won't allow a generator unless specifically used for medical reasons. Please message if this is the case. 

Dogs are allowed, but they must be controlled on a leash especially around the livestock please.

Please don't allow your children to chase the animals around. The cows get very scared and run through fences. 

For everyone in your group and for others camping on our property, please read through all the rules before arrival. 

Please message if you have any questions or issues when booking. 

Thank you, 

Kerry

The campsite is very nice. Just the toilet is a fair bit to drive to.

We loved our stay at Gums and Gullys, the sites are huge, the views are beautiful and the hosts were delightful! I loved that the dogs could be off lead and the access to the river for swimming and kayaking is fabulous. We will be back!

Such a nice peaceful place to stay. We had 2 children with us age 4 and 8 and they just went off exploring. Very spacious sits and makes you feel like you have your own slice of paradise. We walked to the river were you did have to wade through some mud but it didn't bother us in fact in made the kids day to be all sqelshy in the mud. We will definitely return feeling very relaxed as we left.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Gums n Gully. Great location, only an hr from home, peaceful and lovely hosts. Highlights include the nature painting the kids took part in, the evening fire, stargazing and venturing to the river. The only challenge was trying to use the one homestead toilet at peak times. If you're completely self sufficient would be best.

We had a great few days at Gums N Gully. Kerry greeted us as we arrived and was very accommodating and had moved us from our booked site (paddock) into the Trailer and Tents among the trees (as I had preorganised via msgs). She also offered us some fresh eggs and passionfruit.

We got to experience two sides to GnG. The first night we had the whole campsite to ourselves (others were booked in up at the paddock but not down with us) so we got a super quiet day listening to the birds and got to explore all the nooks and crannies looking for fairy doors and paintings AND a chance to take some amazing night sky photos. The 2nd day others arrived for the long weekend and it became a lot more social with kids for our daughter to play with and dogs coming up to say hello (the other campers were sure to check we were OK with the dogs before letting them out).

It is definitely a site we would visit again as we had a great time. My daughter was a little sad the kids art activity was rained out (definitely no fault to Kerry) so hopefully next time we will be able to join in with that if the weather cooperates 🤣

It is a beautiful site to stay, with a lovely host. The amenities are modern and clean, with great water pressure.
We were shocked at the higher price in comparison to other accommodation options in the area.
Regardless, a great weekend away, and pet friendly 👍
