We had a wonderful time using Ringers Rest as an exploration base. Don’t believe all Dave’s stories but he tells them so well. Do stay.

We had a lovely 2 nights stay, huge area of level ground. Horses around and hot air balloons in the morning.

Spacious level sites, peace and quiet, spectacular sunsets, horses and cattle roaming. Enjoyed our stay and would definitely return.

We just kept coming back. Ringers Rest is wonderfully central and a stones throw from Moreeba yet out in its own unique enviroment. Dave is a wonderful host. We enjoyed a unforgettable night around the campfire being entertained to some excellent country music, Dave's damper and his legionary camp fire yarns.

This is a great place to stay. Dave is a wonderful host, the facilities are great and the people here were wonderful.

This is a really great spot to stay for the night or a few days. Extremely friendly owners. Highly recommend staying here.

We stayed for almost 3 weeks at Ringers Rest. Dave’s stories & songs around the campfire are brilliant. He also cooks a damper every Sunday night ????. He even let us leave our van there while we went to the cape.... highly recommend this site, we can’t wait to get back there
