Coolendel has been a favourite bush camping destination for many years, and we have featured in many publications. Despite this, our piece of paradise remains largely a secret, and while we welcome many hundreds of guests each year, Coolendel is still the ultimate bush getaway destination. Check out what some of our recent visitors had to say about their experience at Coolendel.

Bush Camping at its Best

This review was recently published on Weekend Notes and features some fantastic photos of our facilities and the surrounding landscape. It also gives you a real feel for the Coolendel bush camping experience, so you know what to expect (and what to bring!). We were over the moon with the positive feedback, and encourage all our guests to tell us about their Coolendel experience so we can continue to improve.

“Coolendel is the perfect place to escape from your busy life. There is no phone reception here, so you will not be distracted by the constant buzzing of your technology. Instead, you will be surrounded by the calming influences of nature and experience the benefits of “green therapy”.

Coolendel Adventure

Outdoor Education, Conference and Adventure Specialists, Optimum Experiences also frequently use Coolendel to hold their adventure camps and team building activities.

“You will feel like you are in a remote area, but will still have modern facilities, like hot showers and other amenities in your bunkhouse. These camps are suitable for all ages including primary school groups. They can also be fully catered, or students can learn to cook in the bush, with fresh ingredients supplied daily.”

We particularly enjoy seeing the younger students enjoying their bush experience, away from the distractions of technology! You can find out more about Coolendel Adventures with Optimum Experiences here. We look forward to welcoming you!

Glamping at Coolendel

In April this year, we ran our first ever pop-up glamping event in conjunction with glamping specialists, Flash Camp. For over two weeks, guests were able to enjoy an authentic bush experience during the day and retreat to their luxurious tents in the evenings. Flash Camp’s premium tents feature solar lighting, table and chairs, Biology toiletries and all bedding (including a hand-woven Armadillo & Co rug). When not relaxing in their tents, guests were able to venture out into the surrounding bushland or make use of Coolendel’s hot water showers and barbecue facilities. We hope to offer this experience again in the near future so keep your eye on our Glamping page.
