Bunkhouse & Camping

Callicoma Bunkhouse and Camping area provides self catered accommodation for families and groups in a private forest clearing. Bookings are normally limited to one group at a time, so your group doesn’t need to share the site with anyone else.

The Bunkhouse

The bunkhouse offers simple rustic accommodation for people who want to get away from it all. Guests are able to enjoy the bush safely and comfortably. It is 800 metres through the forest from Callicoma Hill eco-cabin Both facilities can be booked either separately or together.

Sleeping - The mudbrick bunkhouse can sleep up to 10 people. It has 6 single bunks, with a double bed and two bunks in a separate room. Guests must bring their own bedding and linen for the bunkhouse, as only pillows and mattresses are provided. 

Cooking - Gas barbecues are provided in an undercover cooking and eating area which is 50m away from the bunkhouse. Campfire cooking is also available (dependent on weather and fire restrictions). Firewood is provided (an additional cost may apply for large groups). Basic kitchen equipment is available, but guests are advised to bring their own cooking utensils. A wood fuel stove is provided in the bunkhouse for heating and simple cooking. Fresh rain water is used for drinking and washing. There is no fridge or electricity outlets and guests need to bring an Esky.

- A bathroom with flush toilet, wash basin and instant gas hot shower is adjacent to the cooking area.

Lighting and power
– The bunkhouse, bathroom and cooking/eating area is lit by power from solar electricity (12 volt supply).
