Gums n Gully Farmstay is on a 60 acre property, approximately 55 mins north of Perth nestled along the Moore River National Park. Gums n Gully is an 'off the grid' family friendly, and pet friendly camping ground. Children under 12 years old camp for free! 

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,(approx. 800m from the furthest campsite)to your booking for the duration of your stay at Gums n Gully Farmstay. Note; Please provide your own towels. 

You can camp closeby 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, feed the chickens, gaze up at the stars from our three person hammock amongst the trees, or just relax on the shore of the Moore River with a picnic. 

Access to Campsites- Gums n Gully Farmstay is mainly suitable for 4WDs. 2WD vehicles have been able to access campsites 4,5 and 6 without any problems.  Motorhomes have struggled to get on-site and have got bogged down in the sand. There is approximately 250m of soft beach like sand to drive through to reach the campsites 1,2 and 3. But, after it's rained all-wheel drives and even 2WD have been able to access the sites 1,2 and 3.  There is also a steep incline to drive up when leaving.

The campsite is situated 24km from the popular golf course and fishing beach of Ledge Point, 32km from Lancelin, a popular coastal town for beach fishing, surfing, windsurfing, kite surfing, sand boarding, 4WD along the beaches, fishing charters. Also 39kms from the picturesque seaside destination of Guilderton, a perfect day out for families where the Moore River meets the sea. 

Gums n Gully Farmstay is run by artist/owner of Kerry Munns Artlife. (you can find the Facebook page under that name), While on your stay you can experience an artist workshop. During the school holidays I run kids nature painting workshops for 3 or more kids! You can read all about the details to each art workshop in the add on extra options.

Please note; All Art Workshops will need to be booked separately once campsite is booked by going to my art website, please message me that you would like to do a workshop and I will send you the details.

Other local attractions include,  Gravity Discovery Centre and Observatory, West Coast honey farm, Olive farms and wineries, Mini Golf, horseback riding, surfing, fishing, kayaking, windsurfing, kite surfing, 4WD along white sandy beaches, boating, fishing charters and the Pinnacles desert is also only 66km drive away.

Campsites available:

Sites 1, 2 and 3: These sites are more suitable for camper trailers and tents, rooftop campers and the like, not very suitable for caravans as the entrance to the campsite is narrow and less room for turning. It's set among natural bushland alongside a dry creek bed,  with shade from tall eucalyptus trees approximately 200m from the Moore River. There is a three person hammock and a child's swing set amongst the trees. There are fire pits available for your use.  Not 100% privacy but you can strategically set up for better privacy, Warning- there will be some onlooking cows and sheep! 

Site 4,5 and 6: These sites are more suitable for caravans. It is situated in the centre of the farm among natural tall eucalyptus trees. You will have your own fire pits and there is 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. 

OFF SEASON- From November 2021 to Easter 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!

Gums n Gully is a little piece of the country not too far from the city. Perfect for families and those wanting to escape and switch off.
The firepits were perfect to keep warm and cook on. Even the teenage girls had fun! Thank you!

Great spot with lovely hosts. Plenty of exploring for the kids in a beautiful spot along nestled amongst the gum trees and bush. We checked on the chickens, did some painting and had great fun.

Kerry is a wonderful host with well spread out camping areas, the kids painting class was a bonus that our 11 year old really enjoyed.

A great place! Kerry is very welcoming, the camp-site was great and the kids enjoyed the river, even though it was freezing!
We had the whole place to ourselves the first night and the kids ran wild.
Sunday morning art class was a success and the kids loved feeding the chooks, collecting eggs and tasting mulberries
Shirt drive to Coast for a break. Highly recommended for families.

Our family of 5 had a wonderful 5 ( originally 4) nights stay at Gums n Gully Farmstay. The sunsets and starry night skies were amazing. We absolutely loved how quiet it was there. Our site (#4) was very generously sized, and the perfect fit for our large camper trailer with annex, separate tent, swag and kids adventure equipment. Our 2 yo loved the sheep and the cows, the free reign and making daisy chain's. Our big kids 12 and 16 both learnt how to chop wood for our warm crackling fire and marshmallow toasting each night. They also enjoyed kayaking and swimming in the nearby river, kicking the footy across the open field and coming across a bobtail or two. Lancelin was very close so we ventured into the dunes for some fun on 4wheels, boards and bike. This farmstay is well priced and the host Kerry is very welcoming and friendly. Thankyou Kerry for allowing us to experience your amazing farm. We will be back!

We’ve had a great time staying at Gums N Gully. We stayed at site 1-3 area and each of them was spacious, the three-man hammock is awesome that not only the kids can enjoy but the adults can also lay and relax in it.

It’s a short and comfortable walk to go to the river from the site.

My son isn’t a great painter but he definitely loved the school holiday paint workshop Kerry hosted. 🙏🏻

We will be visiting again! :)

Kerry welcomed us to her peaceful, picture perfect property. We had great communication in the lead up to our arrival. We camped on the lower paddock amongst the gum trees, green grass, sheep and lambs. Plenty of space and built in fire pits. We were lucky enough to have the farm to ourselves, fed the chickens and collected eggs, and played some mini golf nearby. Plenty more to explore when we visit again! 4wd recommended for access due to gravel hill down to sites, and sand and thick mud in parts (due to recent heavy rains).
