Extend your stay

Only a short trip up the freeway, Woodhouse provides a safe and convenient space for the experienced camper, or those just starting out.

There are numerous camping areas - all un-powered - complete with shared campfire circles (seasonal use) and adjacent Basecamps which have been fitted with deluxe creature comforts including toilets, hot showers, hand dryers, vanity mirrors and power points for your hairdryer.

Shared dining halls provide shelter, tables and seating, sink and BBQ facilities.

ANNNND your camping fee also includes a Day Activity Pass either side of your overnight stay!! It's not your average campsite...

WE ARE HEEDING ADVICE HOUR BY HOUR, BUT AT THE MOMENT WE ARE OPEN. 

If you have made a booking, we will be in touch via email with any news of closure and the website and socials will also be updated as the situation changes.

For now, we believe that being outdoors on a 54 hectare property (that easily allows you to maintain social distancing), breathing in the fresh country air and being active is a pretty safe place for your family group to be right now, providing you agree to follow the public health and safety expectations below.

Discs for Disc Golf and orienteering maps are being sanitised after each use and you can freely enjoy weaving through the Labyrinth, wandering down our Wetlands trail and going on Woodhouse Scavenger Hunt... or simply exploring the property in all its Autumn glory without a need to touch anything. 

We have big green open spaces a plenty - so pack a picnic - and heaps of magnificent trees to just sit under and read a book.

Note that Tube Slides are not currently running as we are unable to maintain social distancing on this activity.

Outside of fire ban season (May-November), MOST DEFINITELY!

There are several large fire pits for shared use and some half-barrel drums if you're looking for something more private. Bags of wood, fire-starter packs and marshmallows are available for purchase from the office for your convenience.

For the safety of all guests, safety requirements must be met - please refer to the Guest Information brochure provided at check in.

That's cool - we've got one for you! For an additional $15 per person, you can hire a tent and mattress, so all you need to worry about is your sleeping gear. Pack up is included in your hire, but for a few extra bucks we'll even set it up for you (we do encourage you to have the full camping experience and do this yourself, though... it's all part of the fun!).

Pre-booking is essential. First book your space, then flick us an email bookings@woodhouse.org.au

We love our fur-babies too but for the safety and enjoyment of all our guests and wildlife, pets are not permitted. 

Make a stop at the first building on the right to register all members in your party and grab your map and other information about your campsite and onsite activities. 

  • Closed toed shoes are a must.
  • Think sun-smart clothing - long pants are a good idea and best suited to most activities.
  • Don't wear anything you'd be worried about getting dirty!
  • Note that it's generally about 4 degrees cooler in Piccadilly than it is in the city.

BYO everything! With a little preparation, you can ensure you've got everything you need to have as much fun as possible - click here to view a suggested list of items to pack for your Woodhouse camping adventure.
