Off-Grid Campsites

Our outstanding location and wide open spaces are perfect for those wanting to get away from it all and camp under the stars.

The tranquil 16-site tourist park for completely self-sufficient caravans and camper-vans provides guests with a pristine camping experience.  

No tent sites are available.

PLEASE NOTE: With limited water, we have a dump-point on site and a back up amenities block. Please bring your own camping toilet, water & shower.   

The Ironbark Hut

The Folly offers a fully-self contained cabin for you to relax and unwind.  

The Ironbark Hut is perfect for a romantic 2-person getaway, but is also popular with families as it can accommodate up to 6 people.

Truffles are the edible fruiting bodies of fungi that grow underground (in a symbiotic relationship) attached to the roots of our 450 French oak trees.  Truffles are a gourmet food highly valued by the food industry around the world. They are eaten fresh and also made into a variety of products including pasta, truffle honey and truffle mustard.

The Folly is Queensland’s first commercial truffiere and began producing French black Perigord truffles in 2020. Truffles are harvested during the winter months and are available for sale to the public.

Truffle farm tours are conducted on weekends – BOOKINGS ESSENTIAL as spaces are limited.
