Don't expect manicured lawns and clearly marked sites in this cute little camp with a difference. Lovely gardens hide a multitude of historic railway guard vans, eight powered sites and the room for tents. You can cook a meal at the station kitchen which doubles as a dining room, or go on the internet. A lovely outside dining and BBQ area, covered with climbing plants and including a swing seat, is available also. The kitchen is fully equipped with utensils and the separate TV and recreation room includes comfy seating and a large TV. The ablutions area is immaculately clean, and have free showers, there is also a coin operated laundry available. A really thoughtful extra is free bread baked daily and eggs are available at the chickens' convenience. A children's play area has a climbing frame and a sandpit, and there is a large chess set on the paving stones. Your friendly hosts are Fiona and Paul. Amberley is just 10km away for supplies, and please note there is no eftpos available but you can use the old zipzap machine for credit cards. Power sites are $25 for two plus $10 each extra person, a tent site is $20 plus $10 per extra person.
