With Australia's new love for off the grid or bush camping as wells as 12 powered sites. 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 the on going harsh seasons land scaping has been hard work. But we have managed to maintain two communal  grassed areas with another one to come when we introduce our powered site area, in the near future.

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.

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 and 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.
