All campers are required to make a booking and pay in advance. Group organisers are responsible for the behaviour of the members of their group. It is your responsibility to pass this information onto every person in your group.
On arrival: All campers are required to make a booking and pay in advance. On arrival all campers must checkin at the office to collect their camping permit prior to setting up their campsite. The office is attended from 8am to approximately 5.30pm. If you are arriving outside of these times you will need to phone the office on (02) 4375 1222 in advance. Please be advised that staff regularly monitor our campgrounds and anyone found not to have paid will be required to pay twice the normal fee. If you do have extra campers in your group, please ensure they either book and pay in advance or on arrival to avoid having to pay an additional fee.
Camping under trees is an inherently dangerous practice due to the risk of falling branches which can result in loss of life. There is no such thing as a “safe” tree, even healthy looking trees can fail at any time. Therefore DO NOT, under any circumstances camp under trees and always locate your tent etc well away from overhanging branches.
Drone Policy: As our horses and customers safety is top priority, drones are strictly not permitted to be operated anywhere on the property.
Bring your own shade such as popup gazebo or tarp and poles is strongly recommended, particularly when hot weather is forecast.
Be prepared. It is solely your responsibility to look after your own safety and wellbeing while camping. Do some research to educate yourself on all the things you need to take into account when you go camping ie shelter, food and water, first aid, camping equipment, torches, weather conditions and warnings, setting up in a safe location etc.
Campfires are permitted. Please use the existing fire circles or campfire sites. Firewood for campfires can be purchased from the office or you can bring your own. In the interests of protecting natural habitat and operating a sustainable property we ask that no living tree or vegetation is cut down or damaged for firewood or other purposes.
Noise: We ask that you are considerate of your fellow campers and their right to enjoy a peaceful getaway. Please be advised that in the stillness of night, noise can travel many hundreds of metres. Therefore please keep all noise to an absolute minimum. It is a condition of camping with us that all music and noise cease by 10pm. If you are looking to stay up all night drinking and making noise, Glenworth Valley is the not the right place for you to camp.
Horse riding trails: Please ensure all tents are located well away from all roads and horse riding trails.
Walking and collecting firewood along horse riding trails is not permitted from 9:30am to 5pm. There are however some dedicated walking trails you can use during this time so see the office for details.
Horses: As Glenworth Valley is a horse riding centre, be aware that horses will be about. Horses can scare easily and you should allow enough space for them if they are going past on a trail ride or grazing. Cars must give way to horses at all times. Parents are requested to ensure children do not play within 40 metres of the road bridge or the creek below. Bicycles and ball games are unfortunately not permitted in the camping areas between the horse riding hours of 9.30am to 5pm as they can easily scare the horses however such activities are however permitted in certain areas of our property. Cyclists must wear a helmet and must give way to horses, quad bikes and farm traffic. Please see the office for details.
Mobile phone reception is generally not available in the valley. Depending on which carrier you are with it may be possible to get some reception around the horse riding centre complex car park. Mobile phone reception is generally available at the top of the hill along Peats Ridge Road. You may be able to reach an onsite manager by phoning (02) 4375 1222 or 0418 751 222 in the event of an emergency.
Vehicles are to remain on the designated roads and tracks within the camping areas at all times and must not be driven beyond these areas onto our pastures or horse trails. Any person who does wheel spins, burnouts or drives around excessively will be evicted from the property. Please minimise driving after 9pm. If you need to use the amenities block after this time, take a torch and enjoy the walk.
Rubbish: Please place all rubbish in the bins provided. We expect visitors to leave the campsite clean and ready for others to use. If the area is left untidy you will be charged a hefty cleaning fee of $150.
Supervision of children: We recommend you keep your children under constant visual supervision at all times.
Pets: Whilst we love animals, for your pet’s safety and the comfort of others, pets are not permitted on the property under any circumstances.
Risk Warning: You are hereby warned that entering onto Glenworth Valley, camping and participating in any of the activities we provide constitutes an inherently dangerous activity pursuant to the Civil Liability Act, 2002 if you choose to do so you do so at your own risk.
