COVID-19 related info:
We are very lucky that most of our normal park procedures, numbers and areas fall under COVID safe practices.
We welcome EVERYONE to our park.
Pending the restrictions of the day (things keep changing so its hard to keep up!) the animal feeding might be as normal. Or if group activities/congregations are a no go, then you'll receive your animal food and can feed them all in your own time (more like a traditional farm stay).
We've also come up with a few other activities to keep the kids entertained (which will run continuously regardless of any restrictions).
Hand sanitiser is spread around the park, an extra hand washing station at the animal feeding and all other cleaning related requirements are conducted each day.
Guests receive an email about a week before their stay with any other updates, and to prompt paying the balance of their invoice in full before arriving to reduce time spent in reception.
If a lockdown means your entire booking is cancelled then your invoice will automatically become a credit. We do not put expiry dates on credits so there is no rush to rebook.
We love that we are able to provide a fun place in the beautiful fresh air for our guests to enjoy during these times.
FAQs & Useful Tidbits
Q: Are dogs allowed?
A: Yep! Humans upon application...
We request any dogs that may disrupt other guests to stay on a lead, and to keep them away from the animal feeding area in the mornings as our deer may get scared. We also do not allow dogs on the Jurassic Trail as we want to encourage the wildlife (wallabies! Echidnas!) to stick around. We allow dogs in our Bunkhouse Cabin and all camping areas except for the Windmill Field.
Q: Can we pop in for a drive around/check you out?
A: Yes! However you MUST pre-book a Day Pass online. Covid regulations are making things a bit tricker! Click here to book a pass.
Q: Do you fit big caravans?
A: Yes we do. Whilst we are a boutique caravan park with a limited number of powered areas, most have plenty of room for turning around or driving through.
Q: Check in time?
A: From midday for camping. From 2pm for cabins and glamping vans.
Q: Can we check in early?
A: Early check ins are not possible as we are a boutique park with people checking in and out of the same sites each day, and we need to have time to mow, clean up and empty fire pits in between. Please notify us if arriving after 6pm so we can leave a map for you if we've knocked off.
Q: Check out time?
A: By 10am. Most Sunday's we'll be able to offer a late checkout of midday, but we'll let you know upon arrival.
Q: Group Bookings?
A: You can either book together as one group, or book separate and write in the 'notes' that you are all one group and we will make sure to put you all together (that saves someone trying to organise money as well!)
Q: Parties & Events?
A: Sure thing! Click HERE for more info. Please keep in mind we are a family friendly park and all nose must cease by 10pm unless you are booking out the entire park.
Q: Can we use generators?
A: No. Our park is a peaceful sanctuary and we like to keep noise disruption to a minimum. If you require power, please book a powered site - some of which are out in the fields so you will still get the proper bush camping experience.
Q: Whats the best site for a large campervans?
A: We recommend only the Jacaranda, Sizzlers, Central and Garden powered areas which have easy access.

A: Kids aged 3-16 are only $10 per night for camping. Above 16 and you're an adult. Below 3 and you're free!
Q: Solo Traveler?
A: We pride ourselves in being a safe and welcoming park for solo travellers. Book a site to yourself anywhere in the park. Feel free to get in touch if you want more peace and quiet or would rather be amongst the action and we can recommend the perfect spot.
Q: Is the animal feeding extra?
A: Nope! All activities including animal feeding are free with your stay.
Q: Can I come just for the animal feeding without staying?
A: Yes! Simply book a Day Pass. Click HERE for more info. Keep in mind we are not open during the week (except School Holidays).
Q: Are there any swimming spots on your property?
A: Yep! The top spot is the beautiful Mary River, access through our tunnel walk. There are many dams on the property that are lovely for a swim when full. Booloumba Creek is only a few minutes drive with some beautiful swimming holes. Kenilworth also has the cheapest public swimming pool in Australia! Welcome to bring your own kayak, we do not currently hire them out. We do often experience drought where our dams are extremely low so double check before packing the kayak.
Q: Do you supply linens for cabins?
A: Yes - we supply all bedding, towels etc.
Q: Are the cabins self contained?
A: Yes - all cabins have a full kitchen and bathroom setup (+ aircon & heaters!)
Q: What is in the camp kitchen?
A: We have two communal kitchen areas. The Sizzlers kitchen has bbq's, toaster, kettle, microwave and fridge. In the Barn you'll find a fridge, microwave, toaster and kettle. Sinks and bench space in both.
Q: Which sites have water hook ups?
A: Most of our powered sites also have water. Unpowered sites do not. Check the camping page which has the water icon next to areas with water access.
A: Each camping group and cabin get their own fire pit, although you're welcome to bring your own if you're particularly partial to it.
Q: Do you sell firewood?
A: We sure do! $15 a bag. Welcome to collect kindling from around the park. We also sell bags of kindling when available although they sell out quickly.
A: We are proudly a non-smoking property, as we are a nature & animal reserve. You may walk to the road off the property to partake.
Q: What does 'unplugged' mean?
A: We are an unplugged park, which means that we have limited phone reception, and no wifi. Most of our guests enjoy disconnecting and reconnecting with nature, however those having withdrawals or who need to check in for work, we can point out the areas in the park that get a bar or two of service. Telstra and Optus tend to have the best coverage. Our cabins do not have tv reception, but a large selection of DVDs to enjoy.
Q: What is your cancellation policy?
A: We are a small boutique park with a limited amount of sites, cabins & glamping options so a last minute cancellation impacts us severely, and is extra work trying to fill the spot. We book out most weekends, turning away potential business because it has been reserved (that's the point of a deposit!) In an effort to avoid having a 'no refund for cancellation' policy, we strictly follow the below policy:
DO NOT BOOK IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO FOLLOW THE BELOW POLICY
Policy will be strictly adhered to regardless of cancellation reason (getting Covid, bad weather or any other reason, it does not matter. You’re welcome to get friends or family to fill the spot if you like or shoot us an email and we can make some suggestions) It is incredible the amount of Covid cases and sick mothers there are when drizzly weather is forecast.
If a severe weather event or government lockdown forces us shut you, everyone will receive a full credit.
30 + days notice: Option for full refund minus administration fee or full credit with no expiry date (and no admin fee)
14 - 29 days notice: Full credit with no expiry date minus admin fee.
Less than 14 days notice: Cancellation fee of 50% total booking.
Less than 72 hours notice or no show: Cancellation fee of 100% of booking total.
Administration fee for credits, rebooking dates or refunds is $10 per camping invoice and $50 per cabin or glamping accommodation.
Outside of these timeframes you will not receive a credit or a refund for bad weather, change of mind, ill relatives, or if asked to leave due to breaching park rules.
So please do not book until you have checked your work roster, the kids sports schedule and your mothers health!
See top of this page for Covid lockdown related policy.
Q: Do you have a minimum night stay?
A: Yes, a 2 night minimum stay year round, and a 3 night minimum stay for public holiday long weekends including Easter.
Q: Do you do gift vouchers?
A: We sure do! You can purchase online by clicking 'book now!' then click the 'extras' tab and go from there. Or shoot us an email and we can do it from our end.
Q: Are you a farm?
A: We are more of an animal sanctuary! We have found ourselves adopting and rescuing a menagerie of farm animals. You are able to interact with all of our animals at any point of the day, and go inside the enclosures during the animal feeding each morning.
Q: Why are you open only weekends and school holidays?
A: Yep thats right! We spend the week days working on new projects, renovating, gardening and improving the park so that weekends are dedicated to our guests. It also gives us a chance to have the occasional day off, without needing to check guests in each day in amidst running the farm. 2022 we will be open Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights plus all public holidays and school holidays.
Your question not answered? Shoot us an email and we'll get back to you quickly!
Email is the best way to get in contact! We spend most of our time out in the park, not in the office to take your call and with limited phone reception cannot divert it to our mobiles.
