We stayed at the Hanging Rock Ridge and loved it. The site has a slight slope which required a little bit of digging under tyres to make flat for our rooftop tent. We felt a million miles from anywhere and there was such beautiful birdsong morning and night. We'll definitely come back.

Lovely flat, secluded campsite with ready made firepit. Gorgeous spot. Had it all to ourselves and easily accessible from the highway.

Great site in the upper valley. Quiet, peaceful and just what we were after. Danielle was an excellent host and very knowledgeable on the surroundings. Will definately be back.

Thanks Danielle for a lovely, peaceful weekend. Danielle offers beautiful camping spots in her valley. Plenty of firewood for camp cooking, excellent walks, lots of birds. Highly recommended.

Property nestled in a beautiful natural valley with lots of native wildflowers and a cold red bellied black snake that couldn't move. Wonderful back to basics camp on slightly sloping ground. Great to take kids bikes to ride along the valley, and lots of room to kick a ball, explore the bush etc.

We loved our stay at The Sanctuary. Within easy reach from Sydney, but feels a world away. So peaceful and unspoilt - a rare gem. Would highly recommend!

Danielle was a great host. From arrival to end we had no issues. It will be on our list to return to the Sanctuary for a relaxing off the grid break.

We had a very peaceful and relaxing time camping at the Sanctuary. Danielle was a wonderful host and very helpful. It is a beautiful area of bushland and the continuous bird chorus was music to our ears. I would highly recommend this property to anyone looking for a tranquil camping trip.

The Sanctuary is a beautiful secluded campsite, so peaceful and unspoilt with birds, horses and kangaroos. Danielle was very helpful and a lovely host. She made us a fire pit upon arrival and there was plenty of firewood for cooking. It was a truly unique experience, we will definitely go back.
