Sheoak Ridge Nature Reserve

Private Campground - Queensland


Since its purchase in 2000, Sheoak Ridge is seen in a very different light by its owners and is now highly valued for its ecological diversity.  In its 164 acres you’ll find open eucalyptus woodlands, riparian rainforest, melaleuca wetlands, billabongs and complex ecotones. Needles to say, with this much diversity in habitats, there is also great diversity in wildlife.

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to leave the hustle and bustle of the big cities behind and live entirely surrounded by nature at it’s best? As part of our desire to teach people about the wonderful world of nature in Australia, we would like to invite you into our home as a farmstay guest. We have done numerous farmstays with international  students and independent travelers and have made many new friends, who then stay in contact afterwards through our facebook page. Our farmstays are pure FUN!

It is becoming increasingly more difficult to find a clean and private location to experience nature. As such, we have decided to allow bush campers on our property. Nestled into one of our favourite parts of the property, our bush camp offers privacy and seclusion you won’t find elsewhere. The site is true to bush camp style. i.e. You bring it in: you take it out. There is a small dam onsite and Rifle Creek is a pleasant 60m walk away, so there are lots of places to explore and cool down on hot days including a great swimming spot in the adjoining National Park (no camping allowed – fines apply to those who try).

The site comes with a variety of campfire pits so you can enjoy the wonders of cooking on an open fire and roasting marshmallows with family or friends. Stargazing, hiking, swimming, playtpus and bird watching are some of the activities you can enjoy in this quiet space. Our property is a wildlife refuge, so no dogs or cats.

Costs: The bush camp site is $10 per adult & $5 per child (<16yrs) per night. If you have a larger group, please check with us on number of people allowed onsite at one time. At this time we are only allowing one group on site at a time, so when you book, the entire site is yours exclusively.

Where are we?  Sheoak Ridge is located an easy 1.5hr drive north west of Cairns and 45 mins drive from Port Douglas, Mareeba & Mossman in far north Queensland. We are on a rural property near the small township of Mt Molloy. Our property is private, so all guests must contact us via email before their arrival. We will send you a map with directions once you’ve contacted us in person.
