We really enjoyed our 3 night camping trip at Pelican Point. A real privilege to stay on Wayne & Kim's property, thank you Wayne for sharing your local knowledge of the area with us. The kids really enjoyed catching yabbies and fishing and the starlit evenings were enjoyed by all of us. Thank you.

A lovely quiet, peaceful place, perfect for bush camping. Hosts welcoming and helpful, although not at all intrusive. Close to the river, our campsite provided ample shade. The fire-pit was great, particularly given the surrounds were tinder dry, wood was supplied. Definitely on favourite list!

If you are looking for a quiet, relaxing weekend in the bush, this place ticks all the boxes. A great spot for fishing, catching yabbies, bush walking, wildlife spotting, or just hanging out by the fire. Thanks Wayne & Kim for a great weekend.

A big thank you must go to Wayne, Kim and the girls for making it possible for us to stay at their fabulous property and for their time during our stay to ensure we had everything we needed and more. We enjoyed our Easter break - the camp spot was superb, the sunsets and sunrises amazing. Highly recommend.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Stockyards Camp over Easter. We felt like jolly swagmen, camped by our own billabong, the perfect setting for an Aussie bush camp to impress visiting French people. Loved the views and the bird life. Even spotted a couple of kangaroos.

Our first Youcamp experience and we loved it. Had a place by the river entirely to ourselves. We've been camping a few times lately, including a long wilderness walk on Kangaroo Island and this was our first time having a place to ourselves. Friendly hosts, handy location.

Thank you so much for your assistance and providing one amazing space for our family to celebrate Easter. We felt like we were the only ones around for miles and the views of the milky way from our campsite...will stay with us always, it was breathtaking! You went above and beyond we will be back!
