My husband, toddler and puppy and I set up camp and stayed for a week in our tent. The site we had was fully fenced and had a large shelter/undercover decked area probably the best campsite available! We had the most amazing stay. There are multiple large off lead dog areas for a bit of exercise, an open air aviary (you can purchase bird seed at reception), a rock pool in the vicinity, large fully equipped camp kitchen and many many tether points on the park grounds. The communal bathroom was stocked with aromatherapy handwash and hand cream, complimentary bath mats, a hairdryer all of which were absolutely refreshing to use after rolling around with a puppy (and toddler) in nature. If you want to visit the Tarra-Bulga National Park and are wondering what to do with your furry loved one, there is a Day stay kennel on site which is more like a Dog Motel! There is a day bed, tv, VHS player for movies, and access to an outdoor run so your pooch can soak up some sunshine and be at one with nature. Wifi was available only when near reception, no phone coverage. Hosts were lovely, generous, friendly and resourceful! Thankyou Helen and Rob for a wonderful break!

We had a brilliant stay here last year. Perfect place for Mollie 🐶 to run around in the off leash area. Owners were wonderful and helpful. We even saw Koalas 🐨 when we stayed!

    They say life is better around the campfire. And we could not agree more.  Over the years due to increase fire risk it's become a challenge to find great campsites that allow you to have a fire by your tent.  Please be a responsible Aircamper and brush up on your fire safety knowledge. Bushwalking NSW has a great article that'll give you the rundown on how to light a fire responsibly.
