OLIVE HILL FARM RV CAMPGROUND
Yes we are open, for those who are travelling interstate/ seeking to make a longer term booking. Please call us on 0448 095 428 to discuss your requirements.
As we move into unchartered territory with a very large slow down in peoples general movements, touring and social distancing.
To aid our health system being able to cope, we are all keen to do our part to help.
To repeat, Yes we are open and yes we are providing a safe place to park with good social distance between sites. We are located near town for supplies but away from passing traffic/ people. The perfect place to park up and sit tight until the “storm” passes.
We are encouraging longer stays to slow the movement of people through our farm and the Margaret River Region, giving security for our family and guests in the campground.
This is an evolving situation and we will endeavour to keep up to date and are open to any questions and bookings (subject to availability) via phone calls.
Thank you in advance for your understanding. We appreciate we may be making changes early but we would rather be pro active as there is no looking back.

Yes we are open! We are very fortunate that the campground is huge and our large bays are well spaced out within the olive grove.
Our guests must all be self contained as there are no toilets, bathrooms or camp kitchens, thereby eliminating the risk of exposure to coronavirus from cross contamination in these areas.
Being on a farm, guests can still enjoy beautiful walks and there is nothing but beautiful fresh air and clear skies, except when it’s raining 🙂
The only changes we have within the campground are that: new bookings from interstate travellers and those looking to make a longer term booking only. Also sadly we will not be offering complimentary scones, jam and cream on Monday and Friday mornings, we will not be offering Haggis tasting on Wednesday evenings and we are now only accepting card payments for stays until the coronavirus pandemic has passed. This is in line with social distancing and not creating gatherings, to minimise any risks.
Please make bookings direct with us via phone call and payment is via credit card only. We look forward to meeting you.

Thank you for looking into staying with us on our farm. We have established the 17 caravan/ camping bays to exclusively cater for those who enjoy farm life, farm produce and are looking to stay and relax in the Margaret River Region.
POTABLE WATER now available see below for more details!
Heralding 2020 we are opening our eyes to our business viability and trialing new rates of $10 per adult per night and Children/ infants 16 and under are $3 per night. We have kept our fantastic complimentary Scones/ picklets every Monday and Friday morning at 9am for a chance to share ideas of the region and meet some fellow travellers. We also have complimentary Sundowners of Haggis tastings and bagpipes on Wednesday evenings at 17:30, BYO drinks 🙂
Yes we do have an on site dump point for chemical toilets, for which we now have a small charge of $5 per use. This small charge is so we can keep our nightly price as low as possible and only have guests contribute to our direct cost of emptying the dump point, should you use this facility. The dump point is suitable for emptying cassettes only and it is not possible to empty a tank via driving over it. There is a free public dump point in the town of Margaret River, near the Shire offices, which guests can also use should they wish.
We are located only a short distance (10kms) from Margaret River and equidistant from Augusta and Dunsborough, so are centrally located, close to all amenities and offer a quiet location.
You have the 3 options to confirm your stay:
1 – Click here to book in advance to secure your site – our preference for ease of booking for everyone
2 – Phone ahead to enquire/ book – we are happy to answer any questions you have before booking
3 – You can just arrive at the campground and take your chances, either calling us when you get here or speaking to the camp host if they are there. Not a good option in our opinion as you may not get a site as there are only 17 bays and all bookings take priority.
No backpacker vans (AKA Whizz Bangs) are permitted on the farm, although self contained vans are permitted as we appreciate this is how some choose to travel Australia. Camping in tents is not permitted unless associated with a caravan, motorhome or camper trailer.
If you are travelling with the love of your life (your Pet dog) then they can come and stay too. There are a few simple Dog Rules:
- Dogs must either be secure inside the van, or on a lead, even around your campsite or down the Woodland Walk. No exceptions.
- Owners must clean up and pick up behind their dogs.
- Current up-to-date vaccination certificates must be available on request.
- If owners go out, the dog must go with them.
Bookings will be canceled if dog owners do not follow the rules.
To clarify, we are catering for those who are contained – ie have their own toilet, either a built-in toilet or some form of Porta Potty of their own.
FEATURES WE HAVE:
- Potable water is now available on farm at an additional cost of $1 per 25 litres. This small cost associated with the water is because we do not have enough rain water on the farm. We now can buy in water from Margaret River and store it on farm for your use, should you wish. We are passing on this cost to you, if you want water, rather than increasing the nightly price. The cost for the water is $1 per 25 litres, so for your average caravan of 150 litres storage it will cost $6 to fill your tanks. The tap is centrally located where you can pull up next to it to fill tanks or you can park in your bay and walk/ drive there and fill up your containers
- Suitable for Rigs of all shapes and sizes, if you are in doubt or you want to discuss please call us on 0448 095 428
