Also when you confirm booking, just message the type of vehicle and set up you have so I have an idea what to expect.

With Australian native birds in abundance. A place to hang your hat after a day out in the Northern Illawarra, just south of Sydney and nearby the Royal National Park and beaches.

2nd site is suitable for a 4WD with tent on top, etc. Also power and water available. (not suitable for caravans).

Both sites are at the front of the property. The facilities include a proper shower and toilet.

PRICE IS: $38 1-2 people per site with ADDITIONAL $17 per person.

At this stage, Hipcamp does not have a price for children however I would charge $6 per child under 10 years of age.

Alan provides a tranquil place to get away and relax. I enjoyed the layering aspect of his rear gardens, trying to spot the fish in his ponds and the sounds of birds. Good coffee shops and an amazing art gallery are only 5 mins away. Thanks for your hospitality Alan.

Thank you Alan for a wonderful stopover at your property. It is gorgeous and you are a wonderful host!

We had a wonderful camping experience at Alan's sanctuary. He has set up the place well for ease of accessing the facilities, with lights that automatically turn on at night. The block is well situated near to the beach and is tranquil. Alan is very accomodating. The ground is grassy and soft.

Loved the stay! No trouble reversing the van into the driveway under the shade of the many trees. Was like camping out in the wild, very lush and green. Alan is a very welcoming host and also very knowledgeable about he local area. I’ll definitely be back for a longer stay!

We had a great time camping here. Alan was an incredibly friendly and accommodating host.

The backyard is spacious, well-kept, and full of native birds. It is also well-located, giving you nearby access to the Royal National Park and Wollongong.

I would definitely recommend staying here!
