One of the most amazing experiences of my life. I had travelled all around Australia for the past 11 years and this was an unforgettable experience ! The owners were so accommodating, don’t bother calling up just come and say hello and see if anything’s available because they are amazing human beings. I had stayed there for maybe a week and left for a few days towards cairns, the weather was horrible and checked the weather and it said chillagoe was so perfect (as always). The ammenities were super clean, the fire places were immaculate, the kitchen and the sink and the whole set up is INCREDIBLE! They maintain is so so well! I was just travelling around Australia I’m a astrophotographer, this place was absolutely insanely clear, perfect and a photographers dream. It was the best experience of my life and if the owners ever see this, can they please get in contact with me, it would be amazing to come back at some stage. Lewin woods 0422304329 🤙🏽

We arrived on Labor Day afternoon as everyone who'd been there for the long weekend had left. Ian, the very hospitable owner (who also put on the stargazing tours in the on-site Observatory) told us to help ourselves to sites as we were the only ones there. Great level sites with fabulous views of the nearby mountain and old copper smelter, good drop toilets, bush showers, camp kitchen and every site has a fire pit. We stayed 4 nights and loved every minute, as did our 2 six month old Labs. Every night a spectacular sunset and during the day we drove the 30km to Walsh River (very scenic drive, just watch out for road trains) for swimming and had the place to ourselves. Apparently busier on weekends. Highly recommended.
