ACTIVITIES

@ Billy'o Bush Retreat

We have so much to do at Billy'o, the options are endless.  Depending on what you feel like doing, you can relax, watch the sun go down and enjoy the serenity of the bush or get stuck into some of the activities on offer. Spend some time exploring our old sheds filled to the brim with memorabilia and collectables, take a dip in our famous pool made to resemble a sheep dip or enjoy the view only experienced in our outdoor shower. There is plenty of bush walking and mountain biking options close by and there is lots of outdoor space and activities for the kids to keep busy. At the end of your day, why not pull up a tractor stool at The Chaff Cutter Bar for a drink or two and spin a yarn among yourselves, our other campers or with your hosts Mark and Noah.

Some seasonal activities may be on offer during your stay including yabbying, pizza nights and trailer tours but are subject to availability. We will let you know on your arrival what's on offer for your stay. Available activities will be dependent on things like numbers, weather and the season.

Keep up to date on what activities are happening during your stay by taking a look at our noticeboard in the Camp Kitchen. You will also find maps and information on local activities here for your convenience.
