Olive Hill Farm RV Campground

Private Campground - Western Australia

Favourite

We have established the 17 caravan/ camping bays to exclusively cater for those who enjoy farm life, farm produce and are looking to stay and relax in the Margaret River Region.

Offering a tranquil, safe and centrally located base, we invite self contained travellers to stay and explore everything from Augusta to Dunsborough, in the Margaret River Region.  10kms East of Margaret River town, our campground in the olive grove is pet & family friendly, with plenty of space and a lovely walk to the Margaret River, at the foot of the property.  Bins are provided and potable water and dump point are available for a small fee.  We will let you know when Emma is offering her delicious scones, cream & jam and please ask if you would like to buy some of Jack’s fresh farm eggs.

Please note, it is really important to us that everyone enjoys their stay here.  It is a condition of our licence with the Shire that DOGS MUST REMAIN ON A LEAD at ALL times & POOP “SCOOPED”, when on the farm.  As responsible dog owners – just the usual dog etiquette!  If you have any concerns or there is anything we can do to help, please do not hesitate to ask.

WATER available – $1 per 25 litres

DUMP POINT on site for chemical toilets – $5 per cassette.  This facility now requires a key, which you can collect from Helen (0456 310 302) or the camp hosts.  This service is offered for your convenience and the fee goes towards the significant cost of emptying the tanks and disposing of the waste.   The dump point is suitable for emptying cassettes only and it is not possible to empty a tank by driving over it.  There are free public dump points in Margaret River (near the Shire offices) and Cowaramup.

There are a few simple dog rules:

  • Dogs must either be secure inside the van OR on a lead, even around your campsite or on the walk down to the river –  NO exceptions!
  • Owners must clean up and pick up behind their dogs.
  • If owners go out, their dog must go with them.
  • Current up-to-date vaccination certificates must be available on request.
  • Bookings will be cancelled if dog owners do not follow the rules.

We are catering for those who are self contained – ie have their own toilet, either a built-in toilet or some form of porta potty of their own.

Should you wish to run your air conditioner all day, then this is not the place for you – even if you have a silent run generator.

No backpacker vans (AKA Whizz Bangs) are permitted on the farm, although self contained vans are permitted as we appreciate this is how some choose to travel Australia. Camping in tents is only permitted when associated with a caravan, motorhome or camper trailer.

The farm is a 150 acre working farm where we produce Eggs, Beef, Pork and Lamb all sold at local farmers Markets and direct to customers. Please ask if you would like to try our produce. We are currently also developing a large veggie garden to complete our self contained farming model.

A beautiful spot to stay whilst exploring the Margaret River area. Camp hosts plus owners Benji and Helen very welcoming. Some dirt road to the property, but worth the effort. Camp fire for happy hour.

Have to agree with the other great reviews we really enjoyed our stay. Nice and central for exploring from Busselton to Augusta. Easy 15 minute drive to town. The dump point was good, but it is raised a few meters from road level so would not gravity flow if needed. Gravel road was fine on our arrival and was freshly graded today.

Very welcoming camp hosts. Level sites and well maintained grounds. The site is secluded, hidden amongst an Olive plantation that is in turn is surrounded by very tall tree plantations. Beautiful walks through the woodland to a pontoon on the rivers edge. Campfire at 6pm for drinks and nibbles (BYO). Drop toilet that is very clean and water is available to purchase at a nominal cost. Owners Benji anda Helen are delightful - as is their Kelpie dog. There is a gravel road access for about 2kms whichever way you approach but easily navigable in a Motorhome. No power but generators are allowed 8.30am -5.30pm. Whilst we were there, 12 visitors and 1 generator ran for about 10 mins morning and night. Peace and quiet and fabulous night skies - all at very reasonable cost. The best value in the area.

As below. Wonderful camp site to visit the Margaret River area. Highly recommend. The nearby Colonial Brewery is definitely worth a visit for an ale and a whack on their lakeside golf range.

A beautiful gem hidden amongst olive trees. Welcoming camp hosts David and Robina explained the facilities and guided us to our parking site. The sites are well spread out so claustrophobia is not on the agenda. The evening camp fires were a great way to meet other guests and hosts alike. Benji and Helen (owners) are a lovely couple who are more than happy to interact - without being pushy. Water is available if you need to refill your tanks (nominal cost), generators allowed during the day and a drop toilet that is probably the cleanest in Oz! Access road is gravel for about 2kms from East or West but certainly ok for Motorhome sat a steady pace. Beautiful woodland walk (amazing variety in the plantation) to the river where there is a pontoon and swimming if desired. Dogs welcomed but must be kept on lead in the campsite. Well worth a visit.
