An open and sunny area. - Fairly level and sheltered site at the forest edge. A nearby gate leads into the State Forest. Fairly firm ground, but still 4WD recommended for the entrance. A very quiet spot which is a short walk to the creek.

This site is a fair distance from the facilities, so we would either recommend that you are fully self contained, with your own toilet, or that you use the facilities at the top of the hill. The use of these facilities is included with your booking. 

Children under 3 years old are free, but for insurance, please indicate them with a comment in the booking.

This property has an overall capacity to ensure that our number of visitors remain low. This not only ensures that campers recieve the space and peace they look for in a campsite like this, but also so that we can ensure the bathrooms can be kept clean and not overloaded. This is also a part of our COVID safe plan. 

Due to this overall capacity it is important that you book for the number of people that you intend to have stay, as while we try to accomodate increases to booking numbers, they are not guaranteed unless booked. If we have met overall capacity then we may not be able to approve increases to booking numbers. This is for the comfort and safety of all our visitors. Thank you

We had a great stay here. We were the only ones on the property which was really great to have it all to ourselves! A great flat space for 2 camper trailers and a fire in-between us.
The perfect place for young families as the creek was super shallow so nothing to worry about. Great location

We had a great weekend! Linda was very friendly and attentive. Lots of room to camp and the donkeys were really nice to see also. Not far from town and lots to see and do.

We had a lovely stay at Iron Brook Donkey Farm.
The beautiful and tranquil environment,
friendly host and the gorgeous donkeys all made for a great stay.
We loved having space and privacy for our big bell tent. We will be back soon. Thank you!

This place is really something special. Under 2 hours from Melbourne and 10 minutes to Warburton for resupply. Beautiful and quiet. If you have a fully self-contained set-up, you should definitely give this place a go. Thank you Linda for a wonderful weekend!

Lovely private spot for a quick stopover in Warburton. Close to township but out of the hustle. Linda was a lovely host who took time out to show us around and introduce us to her beloved rescue donkeys. Clean bathroom facilities.

Such an incredible and unique place to stay. Very accomodating to allowing us to have our dogs with us, and for finding us a good quiet spot. Will definitely be back to visit soon. Your love for the donkeys is so wonderful.
