UNPOWERED CAMPGROUND gives you the ability to set up anywhere in the designated unpowered camping area. $12.50 per person per night. Children under 5 stay for FREE!

There are 18 sites in all and you will be designated one of these at the time you book. $36.00 per site per night – inclusive of 2 people (max 5 people per site recommended, $12.50 per additional person per night).

It doesn’t come fitted with scatter cushions or throw rugs. A romantic, quiet getaway with all the bells and whistles it ain’t…

It’s affordable glamping – Roonka style!

Love the idea of camping but not all the packing or setting up the tent? Not only will we set up a beautiful bell tent for you, we’ll throw in four mattresses and your own private table and chair setting.

Perfect for a couple’s getaway or family adventure. Unplug from your devices and reconnect with nature – and each other!

Standard pricing is $200 per tent (on a powered site) and covers up to 4 people for 2 nights (including activities). Additional nights can be booked at $100 per night. The tent will comfortably fit up to 6 guests, with additional mattresses for additional guests charged at $25 per person per night (no charge for kids under five).

Bring your own pillows, sleeping bags/linen and towels.

Glamping guests have shared access to the camp kitchen and BBQs.

“We really enjoyed our short stay at Roonka in the Bell tent. It was very convenient to have the tent set up and ready for us to bring our bags in. It was very spacious for 5 of us with room to spare. Nice grassy area out the front with a beautiful tree to read under. It is a great location where the children can enjoy the water safely.” Tina, January 2024




Due to the intimate nature of the site, note that all accommodation options attract a minimum stay of 2 nights, except powered and unpowered camping sites Monday-Thursday. All attract a 3 night minimum on standard long weekends and 4 night minimum over Easter.

Check-in any time from 2pm on the day of arrival, check out before 12pm on the day of departure.


Rainwater is in limited supply and available for drinking purposes only from selected tanks and in the two kitchens (please check with the Volunteer Camp Host or Caretaker). All other taps supply unfiltered river water including supplies to the toilets and showers. Please consider bringing your own drinking water due to the limited and varying quality of the onsite rainwater.


Small-medium sized dogs are welcome, but must be kept on lead at all times for their safety and the safety of other guests. Pets are not permitted indoors, including hired Bell Tents, kitchens and bunk rooms.


The picturesque property offers the perfect backdrop for a very special and unique wedding ceremony, milestone birthday celebration or family reunion, with exclusive private site hire available.
Dry hire of the property and facilities allows you to bring in your own flavours, colours and styling – and really make the place your own. Phone or email for full site hire pricing and availability.
