Things to do

There is so much to do in, around and near The Camp.
These are just a few of our favourites.
Our friendly staff at the office can help you with more ideas.


  • We love it when people gather and connect. Our firepits – once lit by a member of our staff – are the perfect location to get together.
  • A kids playground with slide, seesaw, old tractors and swings
  • A boat ramp for launching your boat or even just to jump off into the cool, clear waters of Lake Hawea
  • Paddleboard, kayak or swim in Lake Hawea.
  • Fish from the rocks. Hire a rod from the shop and fish from the edge of The Camp.
  • Smoke your fish, with the help of our team, once you catch it.
  • Stroll through the trees, listening to birdsong and exploring walkways.
  • Grab something to eat and a coffee from The Camp Food Truck.
  • Book in an amazing hot/cold immersion therapy session at The Secret Sauna!
