Located on Norwood Road, Lower King and backs onto the serene King River, 12 kilometres north of the Albany CBD.

Michaelmas and Breaksea Dormitories.

These two dorms can accommodate up to 27 people in each Dorm. Each dorm has a number of rooms with double bunks. Depending on the room size, some rooms will sleep four, others six or eight.

Campers will need to provide their own pillows and bedding.

The Cub Shelter, we're all in it together.

The Cub Shelter (also called Bunkhouse) is a rustic wooden structure with a high pitched roof and stable doors. The elevated wooden floor is perfect for swags or air mattresses for those not wishing to use the dormitories. Will sleep up to 20. A separate Leaders room with a double bunk is also available.

If you prefer, you can just use it for an indoor activity area.

You'll see the stars.

There are a number of cleared bush sites set up specifically for camping, with cooking fires able to be lit between April and November unless further bans are imposed. A campers kitchen is now completed containing foldout tables, chairs, fridge and microwave (electric kettle upon request) for campers to use during their stay, especially nice, when it’s raining.

John Barnesby Flightdeck

The Flightdeck is our kitchen and dining facility. The kitchen has two commercial sized gas ovens and stovetops, a griddle plate, two fridges and heaps of stainless steel bench space.

Crockery and cutlery for 60 is also available, along with large pots, pans and utensils to feed the masses.

The Flightdeck becomes a very useful activities area between meal times.

What to do whilst you here.

This 8 hectare bush site has plenty of room to allow camping, bushwalking, navigation and campfires. A large grassed oval provides a great activities area when a lot of room is needed.
