Summer Bookings

We DO NOT take bookings for un-powered sites at all. First in basis, we normally only fill between 26th Dec to 14th Jan and long weekends from Jan to May. When busy we try to update our Facebook page with availability on an hourly basis, please check this before you come during these dates. Please don't waist our time by asking us to take a booking for an unpowered site in hope that we will just for you, we do not have set sites for unpowered sites, as a bush setting the layout is forever changing and everyone's needs and wants are different. There for when you arrive for an unpowered site you will be able to select the site that best suits you and your needs. Not taking booking for unpowered sites also allows us to keep our low prices and gives more of the profits to our community.

We ONLY take bookings for powered sites from the 16th Dec to the end of of the Easter holidays, long weekends, and 28th to 30th Oct 22 MINIMUM 4 nights stay to make a booking. The rest of the year we do not take bookings as we are not busy enough to warrant it.

Apart from the summer and Easter holidays the office is generally only open for 1-2 hours each evening, you can check in with correct cash using the envelopes provided at the office door.

During the day our camp managers work for Southern Rigging and Scaffolding and are generally unable to take bookings. So please send a text message or email and they will get back to you as soon possible. Emails are answered by volunteers so can take some time for response.


You can check in any time after 1pm with correct cash and following the instructions on the door. To check in you will need Name, mobile number and Vehicle number plate/registration number please have these ready to avoid lengthy waits to check in. Check out is 10am.


Payment must be made on arrival, failure to do so will result in a fee of $5.50 per person when the manager does his rounds.

All visitors must park in the parking bay next to the facility block not at your camp sites or they will be charged a camping fee.
