We love staying with Robyn and Peter. They have a beautiful paddock they keep mowed, overlooking a dam and with shelter from rows of trees for windbreaks.
The trees by the dam are perfect for a hammock and the yabbies kept the kids entertained.
We used their great central location as a base to explore Geelong, the Bellarine Peninsula and the start of the Great Ocean Road, Bells Beach, Torquay, Angelsea, Lorne and The Otway’s.
They welcome everyone for a chat around the fire pit and are keen travelers themselves.
Thanks Robyn and Peter – we will be back again and again!

We thoroughly appreciated the hospitality from Naomi and her son Who came to greet us upon our stay. The location was perfect and peaceful, the set up was rustic and historical. It also allowed us to do day travels into Adelaide, Barrossa Valley, Clare and Burra. Would recommend this stay to anyone once again thanks Naomi and her family.
Cheers, Shirley and Ian Badger. Jan 2023

A great stay, so peaceful & a beautiful starry night. Lovely seeing the horses in the next farm & some kangaroos. Loved parking between the olive trees.
Graham & Zeta are lovely. Graham informative about olives & the surrounding area.
Thank you Zeta for the pencils & tips! Elaine & Steve. Jan 2023
31/10/22: Peter & Robyn are excellent hosts. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Sadly with all the rain, we weren’t able to camp on the dam. But we were provided with a firm base and still with a lovely view of lawns & trees. Will stay again if in the area. (VIC 2022)
What a gem of a spot! We really enjoyed our time here. Ron and Sonja are such incredible hosts, they made us feel like family. So much so, we didn’t want to leave!
Also the farm is in the perfect location, close to town and all the local attractions, but far enough out that you can enjoy the peace and quiet in the evenings. We will be back for sure. WA 2022
So glad we found this hidden gem. Really lovely hosts who made us feel so welcome. The views from the top where we camped were amazing, you could sit and look out at the hills all day.
So quiet and peaceful. Location was convenient to Bathurst. Easy road in with a 21ft van. NSW 2022
We loved our stay at Chris and Shelley’s place. Perfect location to base yourself to explore Adelaide and the Adelaide hills as it’s so close to everything. Beautiful, private, hilltop, grassy paddock with shelter from the wind to stay in and lovely district views. Mt Barker the closest town has all the services you need. We stayed 4 days but there is so much to see and do in the area that we could have easily stayed many days longer. Hahndorf and wineries so accessible. Welcoming host. No facilities, need to be self contained. Pets were welcome and being non fire ban season we were able to buy wood at a nearby landscape supplies yard and have a fire in our portable fire pit. SA 2022
What a wonderful location. So close to Mount Barker, the hills and Adelaide.
Large field with great views, shady if needed. So peaceful.
Dump point in town (Alexandrina Road) with potable water opposite on toilet wall.
Fully recemmended. May 2022
Thanks Chris & Shelley. Nigel & Selina Herriott (Perth)

We are currently travelling from Melbourne to explore WA. We stayed in caravan parks through SA except for 2 nights when we stayed with Anneleise and Neville on their 3000acre property. They let us stay on high ground overlooking the valley. The hospitality they showed, morning teas and a chat and suggestions on local attractions were appreciated. Having a spot away from the crowded Caravan Park and waiting to birds not the clang of caravans packing up and moving was really appreciated. We would highly recommend this site. John and Anne Bruitzman
Many thanks to my wonderful host, Warren, for a very relaxing stay. And getting farm milk and eggs was a bonus! I enjoyed both wine and walking during my stay- will definitely be back.
Cheers, Bernie. WA April 2022
10/10 Ron and Sonja are one of the nicest people you will meet. They were so welcoming. The mini farm is gorgeous. Close to Albany, beautiful views with Green lush grass with power and water if you wish. I was so lucky to Bottle feed little Lolly the lamb. I will truly miss our nights around the fire with them both.
Thanks to Ian we escaped the crowds from a Victorian and South Australian long weekend. A wonderful working farm and views over the lake added to by interesting places to visit close by makes this a highly recommended destination.
We hope to visit again during a winter one day.
Cheers Warren and Merran
To Sonja and Ron
Thank you for having us at your farm we had an amazing time. What lovely people so friendly and helpful, our kids enjoyed bottle feeding Lolly. A great location to discover Albany (WA) and the surrounding areas.
Thanks Marguerite and Barry
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay with Brett and Jo Dec 2021. So much so that we have returned Jan 2022. Lovely spot to park your van with shade from large trees if required or alternatively full sun if needed for solar. Great place to stay if you want to explore Busselton, Dunsborough, Yallingup and not far from Margaret River. Thanks Brett and Jo for making us welcome
Hayley and Clive . WA Dec 2021/Jan 2022
Ron & Sonja – What a wonderful pair of hosts. We were made to feel so welcome for our Christmas stay, so much so, we didn’t want to leave at the end.
A great safe location with views over the fields, and a good base to explore Albany, Denmark and surrounding areas.
It was so good to feel grass between your toes on the lawn, and have the sheep and lambs come to visit.
Would fully recommend staying here, and we would certainly look to return here, when back in the area.Many thanks. Nigel & Selina Herriott (Perth, WA) December 2021

Arrived November 12th 2021 stayed 9 nights.
Great friendly hosts.
What a lovely tranquil hideaway.
The sites are huge and well spaced out. There is drinking water and a dump point. You can still have open fires. The sheep wander around freely keeping the grove trimmed. The walk to the river at the end of the property is beautiful with a sheltered cabana at the river’s edge. You can expect to see plenty of feathered wild life. The town can be easily accessed left or right of the Olive Hill Farm, it’s less that 10 mins into Margaret River. The wineries are super close as are the beaches and the quirky town of Coweramup.
Spent 6 nights here & had the whole fenced paddock to ourselves which was great for the dogs to throw a ball to. Daryl was a great host & kept us informed of any traffic coming through as they were hay cutting. Close to Busselton & about 40k’s from Bunbury . Really enjoyed our stay. Carol & Stephen November 2021
Carol & Steve Joyce
What a lovely quiet spot Morris & Lesley have for one to park their van. We so enjoyed our stay and wished we could have stayed longer. Loved the walk around the farm, the birds and the quiet. Thank you too for the lovely scones (great success by your daughter) and cuppa – really hope we can return for a longer stay. Trevor & Pamela Heiniger. WA 2021
Trevor & Pamela Heiniger
What a great relaxing 3day stay we had here . The view was amazing, lots of birds. Close to other places around Denmark. Warren could not have been more helpful. Thank you so much for everything Warren. Trevor & Pamela Heiniger. WA 2021
Trevor & Pamela Heiniger
What a truly lovely property and even nicer hosts. Ron and Sonja couldn’t be friendlier, more accomodating and helpful if they tried!
Evenings spent round the fire chatting, feeding the sheep and beautiful birds songs – what more could you ask for?!
They are also situated in a fantastic location near Albany and a truly beautiful part of the world.
I can’t say enough nice things about this Farmstay!

Paul & Ann So welcoming, Flat Mowed grass site with views to the horizon, including Islands off the coast. We were also blessed that Ann had time to show us around the farm. So sorry to leave after two days, we will be back. Thanks Lauri & Mary Oct 2021.

Thanks Warren and Leonie for your fantastic hospitality. My furry mate James and I loved the stunning views, animals and evening fires. A very enjoyable 5 nights. WA Sept 2021
What a wonderful place to stay quiet peaceful beautiful country side top of hill look east to Morawa west to mingenew ,fire pits plenty of wood if needed, lovely hostess when back in WA will stay here again
What a wonderful stay we had here . Anne you were so welcoming and we couldn’t have asked for a better camping spot. Close enough to everything that we wanted to go see and yet so relaxing just to stay put! thank you again! From Pamela and Trevor
Great spot if wanting to see Fremantle and Perth .
Garry is an awesome host and goes out of his way to help you .
Highly recommended 🙏
We stayed here late April 2021 – what a Gem of a location – close to Gympie and great hosts
Fabulous place to stay if you’re planning to spend time exploring Tamborine Mountain. Shari is a great host. We had planned to stay 3 nights but covid lockdown got in the way so only managed 1 night. Hopefully we get back there. Many thanks, Shari. Aug 2021
Thank you Ian and Eva for you kind comments , on your camping experience at my farm. It was great to meet you and thankyou for the lovely pancake brunch. Sad to see you go, but you are very welcome to return again. Glad you enjoyed your stay .
Thank you ,

Stayed a week at Ron & Sonja’s lovely property, so relaxing, beautiful views & very welcoming hosts. Close to Albany & surrounds their property is a great base to stay when touring the South West. Highly recommended. Thank you Ron & Sonja from the caravan gnomes. WA Nov, 2020
Peter & Marion Wilde
Goldie welcomed us with a dozen eggs and a huge smile. We needed somewhere to stay half way between Albany and Perth. Luckily we picked Goldie’s place which turned out to be a great decision. There are many facilities to use as Goldie has rooms to book as well. The animals are interesting and we were lucky enough to get a tour around the farm. Thanks Goldie for a great stay. WA Jan, 2021 Peter and Melanie
Awesome property, very well kept lawns and garden areas. Very central location. Blair and Sue are wonderful welcoming hosts. Well worth the stop, can’t wait to pop back. WA Jan 2021
Great spot to stay whilst exploring Busselton Area. Host family made us feel very welcome. Observed dairy and amazing stars at night during our stay, whilst gaining a feel for the local culture. Brett and Jo kindly allowed us stay longer whilst we waited for parts from interstate. Really appreciated their kindness and Highly recommend this special COF. Carol n Dave. Big rig.WA Jan 2021
Great place to camp. Grandkids love the dairy and now want to milk cow’s as a living. Thanks Jo and Brett. WA Jan 2021
Thank you Steve and Leanne. We really appreciated the shade for the hot days of our stay. ?? Two friendly ponies minded our van while we explored Dongara and Geraldton. WA Jan 2021
Hi We stayed with Alison and Darryl over the Australia Day long weekend 2021. We were lucky enough to be their inaugural stop overs. We had a lovely, private, quiet spot. The farm was central to everywhere, Busselton, Bunbury, Capel etc; Alison and Darryl were so friendly and helpful. Definitely recommend. Wendy and Dominic. WA 2021
Enjoyed our 4 night stay. Very peaceful. Close to Waroona Dam for a swim. Bernie & Trish made us very welcome. Nice to be able to stroll down to the cellar to buy a bottle or two. WA Jan 2021.

My partner & I recently stayed at Brian & Bernie’s place and loved it. The best spot I have ever stayed. Can’t wait to get there again. Brian & Bernie are such nice folks, very welcoming & accommodating. Thanks to them both. We will definitely be back. Mark & Jodie NSW January 2021
Mark & Jodie Formston
What a fabulous farmstay. This is the best yet for us.Bernie and Brian are generous hospitable hosts. Amazing views and it’s so peaceful. The area is well grassed and level. Being right on the river we fished and kayaked every day. Close to town and beaches. We will definitely be back. NSW Dec 2020
Larry & Joy Small
Stayed late August 2020…..Wow what an awesome spot and fantastic hosts. We had a brilliant week at Brian and Bernies property (NSW). Planned on 4 days initially and stayed 7. So easy to use it as your base and explore the area. Brian and Bernie have fabulous advice of what to do and where to explore. Also good tips on where to eat and get the best coffee. Very big area to camp right on the river. So much fun just kicking back and watching the fishing boats, oyster boats and all the wonderful bird life from the comfort of your camp chair. If you’re staying a while it’s close to head to Kew where they have a dump point. We’ll be back to one of the best camp spots we’ve had!
Stayed 1st June – 5th June 2020, NSW Big thankyou to Brian & Bernie for your hospitality – our first outing immediately the COVID camping restriction was eased, first farmstay as well & we were delighted & felt immediately comfortable in your beautiful surrounds, river-frontage with pelican & birdlife, creek for crabbing ( too small for our table unfortunately) beautiful mountain & pasture behind us with cows & roos for company – our fur baby’s first experience was a great one! Wind chill the only negative but our little fire helped with that :) Lovely spacious campsites with an uninterrupted view & our fellow campers were great too. Thankyou for your assistance Brian when we needed it as well – definitely looking forward to coming back to your natural serenity – we have already been recommending the farmstay experience & website to family & friends :) Cheers! Peter & Judy – Kempsey
We had a beautiful overnight stay at The Ponds in our motorhome. NSW Oct 2020 Very dog friendly. Beautiful area. Easy to get to. Had happy hour with the owner. Thank you again.
Had the pleasure of meeting Ray and Karen, new dog molly and friends. Friendly hosts made very welcome, many thanks guys.NSW Oct 2020
Stephen & Marcia Jarvis
What a fabulous property & great location. Such a neat & well cared for farm with wonderful hosts. We have a level protected site in front of a shed over looking the dam & the fields beyond. Great location for visiting the Adelaide Hills or the Fleurieu Peninsula. Our hosts Ros & Carol are such lovely people who give us our privacy but are quitely going about their business. We are throughly enjoying our stay & look forward to returning. 10 out of 10, can’t fault our stay here, cheers Trish & Roger SA Jan 2021
We were greeted at the gate by 6 Angus Bulls (not angry bulls) who calmly mooooved aside to let us in. If you are looking for a spot to escape the hustle of daily life this is just the spot. Plenty of birds and nature to keep you company. Local shops 10 mins away and a gorgeous beach close by as well. A pity getting here from Tassie involves an overnight ferry trip as we would be back for Easter. Kingston SA. Apr 2019
