Glamping at Readleaf Creek

The forecast said it would be a rainy weekend down in the Southern Highlands, but it didn’t bother us at all. We were excited to get out of the city and explore around Fitzroy Falls, no matter the weather conditions!

We arrived late on Friday night and were delighted that our host Sam had prepared a fire for us, a perfect way to end the day. We woke up the next morning to the sound of rain falling on the canvas and the wind howling outside. Sooooo relaxing, I did not want to get out of bed.

We spend most of our days by the fire that is set up right by the creek. Here you could also swim if you are fortunate with good weather! There are also canoes for anyone that wants to have a paddle around.

The tent is well equipped with everything you might need, and there is even an outdoor shower set in between the trees with hot water. All you need to bring is cheese and wine, and if you, for some reason, forget - there is plenty of wineries just around the corner.

Staying at Redleaf is an experience like no other; there are so many things to do in the area no matter the weather. We will definitely go back!

Things We Did

  • Lookout
  • Farm
  • Food & Drink
Richardson Lookout
There are many lookouts around Fitzroy Falls that are absolutely beautiful. From the Richardsons Lookout, you get a spectacular view of both the falls and the forest below it. This is only 5 minutes away from the farm so perfect for a morning/evening stroll....
Tour around Redleaf Farm
Don't miss out on the amazing experience to learn about the farm and land you are staying on. We went on a super fun tour around the farm and got the feed and cuddle all the animals that live there but also learn about sustainable, regenerative farming. Hands down my favourite activity for the weekend!...
Mount Ashby Estate
Just 5 minutes down the road, you have Mt Ashby Estate, a fantastic winery and restaurant. The food was amazing and the wine equally so....
