As we emerge from such uncertainty and social disconnection, we know how important camping and outdoor experiences are to people's mental and physical health and are thrilled to announce that we are open for day adventurescamping and weekend family getaways in our chalets!

In fact, we believe that being outdoors on a 54 hectare property, breathing in the fresh country air and being active is a pretty great place for your family group to be right now, providing our public health and safety expectations are followed.

 

We’re also taking additional precautions including sanitising discs for  Disc Golf, Tubes for Tube Sliding and orienteering maps after each use, elements on Challenge Hill and in The Labyrinth are being regularly disinfected – and you can wander down our Wetlands trail, go on the Woodhouse Scavenger Hunt... or simply explore the property in all its Autumn glory without a need to touch anything.

 

We’re thrilled to announce the winner of our inaugural Woodhouse Badge Competition. The brief was to design a badge that shows what you love most about Woodhouse…
 
Megan R. (age 12) from Hope Valley Scout Group has seen her design come to life, showing her love of orienteering, Tube Slides and wildlife at Woodhouse… and has won a $150 Woodhouse voucher for both herself and her Scout group! Congratulations and thank you!

If you're new to camping, or between tents, we've got your covered.

For an additional $15 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!).

Check out the flash flood we had in Cox's Creek at the bottom of Challenge Hill that completely covered over the bridge, the Wade & Climb and the Rope Swing Crossing obstacles. It was pretty crazy and happened within the space of about 15 minutes. Then, by the next morning - right back to normal! Thankfully no major damage was caused and the obstacles were ready for action in time for the weekend.
