Unique Mudgee Accommodation

inside permanent camping
Recycled ironbark and glass interiors add to the stylishly rustic feel, with a kitchen and Rais wood-fired slow combustion stove downstairs, and sleeping loft upstairs. Climb the ladder to the double bed made up with soft, linen sheets, and snuggle under a feather doona and hot water bottles in winter. Heavily insulated, the tower is cool in summer and warm in winter, with water tanks capturing rainfall, which is gravity-fed to the kitchen. A separate WC, also in hardwood, is located a short walk away, and boasts some of the best views you’ll ever enjoy.

Designed by Casey Brown Architecture as one man’s retreat from the world, Permanent Camping near Mudgee is now open for the world to enjoy.

Set on 1800 acres in central west NSW, on the tourist drive between Mudgee and Hill End, Permanent Camping is perfectly sited to take in views of the rugged Australian landscape for hundreds of miles around.

With views across the pristine wilderness of central western NSW, the eco-friendly tower is the perfect size for two people. It was conceived with a minimal footprint, with side walls which open up to bring the landscape in. This truly is a unique camping experience, and will be an unforgettable back-to-nature experience.

One of the joys of Permanent Camping Mudgee is its out-of-the-way location. But this can mean that getting there is a mini-adventure all of its own via a 7km bush track, which winds through grazing paddocks and rugged bushland.
Jason, the owner, will chauffeur you, free of charge, to the tower in his sturdy 4WD, but you can choose whether to ride in style in the cabin or safari-style on the back. Either way, you’ll get to take in spectacular views.
