Setting Up

Campers must set up on sites allocated to them by management. PLEASE take a moment to think about where to set up. Please avoid using tarpaulins as ground sheets, use only shade cloth or enviro mats. Whilst every effort is made to ensure that any dead/dying or dangerous limbs are removed from the trees in the campsites, care must be exercised by guests when setting up camp. (look up before you set up!)

Please do not damage or destroy flora and fauna. There is plenty of firewood available.
Do not dig trenches or holes. We work hard for you to be able to enjoy grassy campsites.
PLEASE DO NOT TIP FAT, HOT WATER OR ASH ONTO THE GRASS! (you can use the base of a tree)
PLEASE DO NOT PUT HOT CAMP OVENS ON THE GRASS – please use the concrete around the fireplace

Bicycles

Guests are welcome to ride their bikes but not on cement paths around the amenities, bunkhouse and undercover eating areas. Helmets must be worn by all at all times. Please avoid doing “skids” and please put bikes away after dark.

Fires and Firewood

Modest fires are allowed in designated fireplaces only. You may bring your own wood but it must be pre-cut into lenghts approx 12 inches or so as to fit in the fireplace.
Do not burn wood or place coals on the bbq plates of your fireplace.
Due to problems with council and neighbours ABSOLUTLEY NO bush wood is to be collected from our grounds OR FROM ANYWHERE IN THE VALLEY. IF YOU HAVE NOT BROUGHT WOOD WITH YOU FROM HOME IT CAN BE PURCHASED FROM THE OFFICE or from the shop up the road. Any one found to have contravened this rule will be evicted immediately.
Don’t throw cans or bottles into fires and please do not leave fires unattended. All fires to be extinguished before departure.
Do not overload fireplaces and do not put ash on the ground. If your fireplace needs to be emptied please see management.
If you need to use coals outside the fire please use the concrete around the fireplace – not the ground or the bbq plate! The grass will burn and we would end up with no grass at all!
Do not burn the stumps around fireplaces.
Braziers and oz pigs may be used but only on the cement rings around fireplaces.

Children

Children are to be under parental control at all times. Do not let children play in the eating area or on the stage. Please don’t leave children alone at fires. Because of an endangered species of frog we no longer allow yabby traps, however a bit of meat tied to string will occupy children for hours! Please do not throw foodstuffs into the creek as rotting food is not pleasant.
