Being the former Jimna State School all our camping is situated on the 2.5acre ‘Ol School cricket oval with tall shady trees on the eastern and western sides with the cricket pitch in the middle.

There are no marked out designated camping spots nor concrete slabs for vans. Guests just select a spot and set up their camp. Note: there is no water nor power available on the oval.

We provide hot showers and all the water on-site is town water and suitable for drinking. Our town water is sourced from a spring fed waterhole locally known as the “Big Hole” and is only a short walk or drive from Base Camp.

Numerous small mobile fire pits are available around the perimeter of the oval for guest to use free of charge so once you’ve set up camp just drag a fire pit over, set up your tent, table and chairs, light the fire and sit back and relax.

Please note there are to be no ground fires. All campfires must be off the ground and in a contained fire pit, your own BYO pit or one of ours. Also be aware campfires must not be left unattended. Think “safety” as we are situated amongst the Jimna State Forest and Conondale National Park and the last thing we all need is the possibility of “Bushfires”!
