Well equipped kitchen, bathroom and television areas are shared with other guests.
Birdlife is prolific with plenty of accessible country to explore. The Barron River boasts clear running water year round which provides a great place to cool off on hot days. Horses and cattle share the paddocks, so it’s not uncommon to be visited by a curious horse while relaxing under your annexe and enjoying the afternoon breezes.
There is a communal firepit for guests to enjoy with plenty of wood to collect on the property. ie if you burn it – replace it for the next guest, please. The mesmerising ambience of a burning fire is the perfect location to share travelling yarns with other guests.
However, we do promote a ‘no party’ policy on our property with music/noise to be kept to appropriate levels for everyone’s peace and enjoyment of the serenity we endeavour to provide. Excessive alcohol consumption or disturbance to other guests will not be tolerated.
Our orchard provides some tasty seasonal treats and doubles as private nooks for those requiring privacy. Saying that there is no need for camping on top of each other with plenty of designated areas to chose from. Groceries can be purchased at the local Coles, IGA or be sure to ask your hosts about nearby farm gate stalls. Birds on Barron provides the perfect venue for outdoor barbequing.
Powered sites are minimal and self-contained camping vehicles/vans are much preferred to our grounds. Amenities are available to campers at an added cost. Please note due to roaming toilet rolls you will need to supply your own!
