Camp on flat, grassed areas beside shady trees and swim in the sandy freshwater tidal Webbs Creek.

We have an abundance of native Australian wildlife, including gliders, goannas, wombats, possums,kangaroos and many varieties of brightly coloured birds. For this reason please don’t bring dogs.

The Grove is surrounded by National Park and there are many interesting bush walks in the area.

A three-kilometre walk along the ridge takes you to ancient Aboriginal rock carvings. The local area also has many historical remains of the early settlers.

Camping at the Grove; General Tips and Info

  • $15 a day camping, per person. Half price for people 16 years old and under, free entre for kids 5 years old and under. This supports us in providing this space, thank you!
  • If you are not using your vehicle to sleeping, please don’t drive your car into the camping area. Stop at the entrance to the Grove, unload, and drive your car to the parking area. Ask for assistance if you need it.
  • If you are using your vehicle to sleep in, you are welcome to park in a dedicated sign posted area, adjacent to the camping area.
  • The Webbs Creek Valley has no mobile phone coverage, in an emergency come to the house.
  • Rainwater from the tap is good to drink. No chemical additives.

  • The campfire is for vegitarian community cooking, keep it small. In a Total Fire Ban gas cookers can be provided. There is a water drum and buckets near the campfire in the case of an accident.
  • Please cease noise and drumming before 10pm, (in consideration of the neighbours).
  • Do not use soap in the river - the fish are breathing.
  • There are two hot showers in the amenities block (The Abbey). Beware the tap water gets very hot. Please use the water sparingly!
  • Toilets are composting, the lid must be kept closed after use. It is ok to put toilet paper down.
  • A three-kilometre walk along the ridge will take you to Aboriginal rock engravings.
  • Shops are 5kms away in Wisemans Ferry. The picturesque village of St Albans is 5km in the opposite direction (great pub, no shop).
