FAQ

What if it rains?

We are dry weather road access only. If it has rained or rain is forecast, please contact us to confirm whether the property is still accessible for camping or the Gilgooma experience.

Unsealed roads are closed following significant rain events.

What amenities or facilities are available?

We are all about low impact camping and our philosophy is that you must bring anything you need (including water) with you, and leave no trace.

If you get stuck or this is an emergency that you aren’t prepared for, please let us know and we will do what we can to assist.

You will need to BYO toilet paper.

You can collect your own fire wood from the property (please do not burn hollow timber) and generators are permitted, with respect shown to other guests.

Gilgooma does not offer dump points or bins. Please use facilities in Coonamble, Pilliga or elsewhere on your travels.

Are you open all year round?

We could be! But it’s best to check. Weather events can impact access to the property and can also result in demands on our own time to be spent on critical farming activities. Please request to book your stay or experience through the website, and will communicate directly with you to confirm.

Do you have phone service and internet?

Generally, no. We are in a rural location and coverage is intermittent, at best. You will be able to get reception and wifi in Coonamble.  

Can we just drop in?

Unfortunately not. Please respect our responsibility to adhere to biosecurity regulations by not dropping into the farm without prior arrangement of your visit. We are a working farm with work and family commitments, and will need to make sure your visit can be accommodated before it can be confirmed.

How far are you from town and how much of that is unsealed road?

We are 35 minutes, 45km from Coonamble and approximately 3km of this is dirt road.

Where can we camp?

We have a large designated camping area for our guests which allows us all to feel like 'we're the only ones here'. Please be respectful and give other campers plenty of space.

Can we have a fire at our campsite?

Depending on the season and current restrictions, a campfire may be permitted. You are welcome to collect firewood off the ground from the property. We ask you not to burn hollow timber, as we try and preserve as much habitat for our native wildlife as possible. Do not cut down any trees. Please ensure fires are extinguished on departure.

Are pets allowed?

Yes, but all pets must be kept on a leash and always controlled, ensuring no impact on farming operations. Please be advised that there is 1080 fox, pig and wild dog baiting in the area.
