Set on a picturesque sheep farm, this campsite offers a serene and tranquil environment that feels far away from the busy city. The lush green rolling hills and the gently flowing Bremer River provide a stunning backdrop for a relaxing weekend getaway. I have to mention, the flow of the river is seasonal. 

One of the best things about Pembroke is the sense of remoteness it provides, despite being so close to the city. The absence of crowds and noise makes it an ideal place to disconnect and recharge. You can truly escape the stresses of everyday life and immerse yourself in the peaceful surroundings.

The property is located in the rocky outcrops of the Bremer Ranges and is on the Bremer River in Rockleigh. This site was once a overnight yard for sheep farmers who were passing through the area.

There are three campsites to choose from. Campsite 1 (The Gums) being the best out of the three, offering lots of shade from the tall Gum Trees. All are quite close to the river.
