We have a number of facilities here to make your stay as pleasant as possible. We cater for everything from swags, tents, camper trailers, caravans and motor homes. Power is available during off peak times on a first come first served basis. There is also an old military container which has been converted for respite / emergency accommodation and those unable to camp due to their injuries. The bed is a double bunk, (double bed base and single top) and it is BYO linen.

All visits are by prior appointment only, including day visits, so please contact us first.


Unless is it specified as closed we always have camping available and
for accommodation requests please contact us.


I have tried to make this information as informative as possible and it will be continually updated to keep it as current as possible, but please feel free to message with any questions.

  • Common areas - In the large shed there is a large common room with couch, television, table and chairs and kitchenette. The kitchenette has a fridge / freezer, microwave, toaster, kettle and small table top oven with two hotplates. Just off this, there is an en-suite with shower, basin and toilet and in the shed you will find a laundry with tub and washing machine. The clothes line is on the northern side of the shed as you enter the common room. There is also a BBQ for communal use. 

  • Accommodation - An old RAAF interpreters cabin has been converted into two bedrooms which can be opened in the middle for larger families / bookings. Each room has a triple bunk, complete with safety rail and ladder, (double bottom and single top), a small gentlemen's cupboard and a lamp. Bed linen and towels are supplied and there is also a port-a-cot for those with young children.​ Its primary use is for respite / emergency accommodation and for those unable to camp due to their injuries.

  • Food - You will need to supply all your own food and drink and prepare it yourself. I try to keep the kitchenette stocked with basic condiments such as salt, pepper, butter, oil, sauces, tea, coffee, sugar, long life milk, cling wrap, alfoil, paper towel and the like. The kitchenette is also equipped with basic cutlery, crockery, pots, pans, mugs, glasses and plastics.

  • Power - If you have a caravan or motor home power can be provided (limited amount and locations). If you have a 15 amp cable you must use a AS/NZ approved 15 amp to 10 amp converter to plug into our power as currently only have 10 amp plugs available.

  • Fires - There is a large communal fire area complete with a one of a kind fire pit. There are also two other additional, smaller fire pits for use in private camping areas. You will find plenty of kindling and fire wood onsite although you will most likely have to collect yourself and I have a chainsaw to cut larger pieces. I try to keep the fire area stocked with larger chopped firewood as much as possible.

  • Facilities - Inside the large shed you will find a gym. It includes a commercial treadmill and cross trainer, a multi-station work out machine, recumbent bike, rowing machine, flat bench, incline bench, free weights, mats, rollers, boxing equipment, fit ball and hand weights. Outside next to the accommodation there is a brand new 8m pool for your enjoyment.



 We all love rules right, and no doubt are pretty used to them after serving our time. While most are simply common sense and common decency, I have to write them down so they are clear to the greater masses and we don’t have any grey areas.
