Great views and nature. All level campsites, some much larger than others, but plenty of space to find privacy. Need much more? Campers must have their own toilet, and take all waste with them. Please leave our paradise as you found it. Campfires permitted in designated spots. Check-in time is flexible.

Mad views and great privacy, large campsites and plenty of firewood and kindling around the forest to get fires going. Firepits provided is a huge bonus. Beware of the trek up the hill to get to the campsite, it's very steep.

There's space to leave your car at the foot of the trek up (off the road), and the trek up is quite steep if you're walking it, even without carrying all your camp equipment. If you're taking a 4WD, make sure it's a proper 4WD and not a city SUV, as that's asking for trouble.

Thanks mate! Definitely worth borrowing a 4WD or preparing for a decent short hike. Stay in touch and I'll look after you next time

Beautiful spot with amazing views! and a bit of fun getting your 4WD up the driveway too. There was plenty of wood for the fire pits scattered about, and amazing views all around.

Patrick is awesome to deal with, we would definitely recommend this spot.

Thanks mate.

This is the most idyllic location, and so close to Melbourne. 4wd access, great (flat) spots to camp, and you can’t find a place more peaceful and private. My wife and I camped throughout Tasmania for our honeymoon, and this campsite truly can hold its own. Amazing, and will definitely be back. Highly recommend! Five stars. Also a great dog-friendly spot. Patrick was extremely helpful, kind, and went out of his way to make us feel welcome. We really appreciate you having us!

Wow the views are sensational...... we had the best spot on the property. PLENTY of fire wood around so dont waste your time, money and space in vehicle by buying any. Will need a 4wd to get up to the camping spots, please don't attempt it without one, if you where to park down the bottom it would be absolutely horrible to walk all your camping stuff to the top as very steep but worth it.
Patrick was fantastic.
Big question is........ "Would we stay there again".......
Absolutely........
