Lovely quiet property with plenty of room and fantastic hosts; a great example of genuine, down-to-earth people living off-grid and enjoying life sustainably - we'll definitely be back to try the woodfired pizzas !

Lovely camp by the creek. . Hospitality second to none. It doesn't get better than secluded camping with the freshest wood fired pizzas. Thank you Richard and Amber for the awesome experience.

We arrived late at night, winding our way through the mountains and down a rough track. Our host pointed us in the right direction and we set up camp in the dark. When we woke the next morning, we were speechless. The camp site was stunning! Surrounded by mountains and tall eucalyptus trees. AMAZING

We were very pleased with our stay. We enjoyed the solitude of the bush but had hosts close by who were welcoming and made us feel right at home. A perfect balance! I happened to be at the house while the wood fired pizzas were being prepared and they looked amazing! Thank you so much for having us!
