Check out the new Morven War Memorial 
which was designed and made by Mick and I in conjunction with the Morven RSL Branch and the Morven Progress Association.  It is a must see at night when it lights the town up.

Our week ends are for group bookings and workshops.  So if you would like a few hours away with your friends for a special occasion, this might just be the place for you, (via bookings only)

Check out our gift shop full of Gidgee Smith Bags, (which are made here on site) and we also have garden which is also made here by my husband and I.  We have pieces for sale in the gift shop

With Australia's love for off the grid bush camping as well as 12 powered sites we can cater for both.   We can also accommodate  20 powered sites if they are booked as a group. We decided to start Gidgee's Bush Camp in 2018.  Our camp ground  offers wide open spaces with no over crowding for all styles of camping, from tents to big rigs and very thing in between.  Gidgee's Bush Camp is set on our home block of 180 acres , which we also use as a kidding block for our  composite  breed of  meat goats.  We  breed the goats to sell the bucks  to  grazers that have bigger  goat farming enterprises.  
Having done lots of camping ourselves we focused on the things that we found appealing.  Places for the kids to run around and explore, and an opportunity for them to feed and interact with the animals.

With many proivous years of droughy landscaping has been hard work. But we have managed to maintain three communal  grassed areas.

There are native trees around the camp ground near our newly extended dam, which provides some great camping spots for our campers. Campers can also enjoy a 2km bush walk that shows trees that are common to this area.
We have a placed fire rings and plasma cut fire pits though out the camping grounds for our campers to enjoy, but you will now have to bring by or collect your own fire wood.  We provide firewood for the communial fires only.

We provide a special group camping area for bigger groups, but other than that campers get to pick there own spot around the camp grounds.

Probably the thing that our campers enjoy the most around the bush camp is the multiple pieces of art work and sculpture.  The art work ranges in size, with the use of many different medians.  Most of the art work is created by myself and it is quite an adventure finding all the hidden pieces both on the camp ground and in our little coffee shop called Kill for a Cuppa.

The coffee shop is set up in the old slaughter houses which were the only buildings on the place when we purchase it in 2006. 
The block was once owned by my uncle and grandfather and as a child i would come out with my father when he was helping them slaughter.  It has been great to bring the buildings back to life, and it has lots of interesting things to see.
