Escape the city, suburbia and crowds...Vintage caravans, camping, bush walking, campfires, BBQs and more at Wild Valley, in Budgeree, Gippsland, Victoria. Surrounded by the Strzelecki Ranges and close to Tarra Bulga National Park.
We have combined our shared passion for breathing new life into discarded and vintage finds as well as our love of entertaining to create unique little getaways in the shape of retro caravans! Our petite blue 1976 Viscount sits on top of the hill amongst the mature King Protea bushes with panoramic views of the valley, surrounding forest and hills. Decked out in vintage and inspired treasures from France and our local op-shops!
The van is equipped with the basic necessities to enjoy a relaxing escape from the city and the rest of the world if you choose to. There is a choice of indoor gas stove/oven with cooking utensils and basic condiments supplied...or wander down to our bbq area.
The van has a queen size bed and the table will fold down to make another double bed. We have had plenty of couples sharing the space comfortably however, please keep in mind this is a small area. All sheets, blankets and pillows are supplied. Towels are also provided if you dare to refresh yourself under our gas hot water shower amongst the gum trees.
An abundance of wild life, birds and untouched landscape will be yours to enjoy during your stay. Sit quietly on top of the hill and listen for the various sounds from the shy, rarely sighted Lyrebird or catch a wallaby grazing at sunset.
120 acres of Australian bush, temperate rainforest, farmland and a tropical oasis in the gully. You can also drive directly to the door of this van any time of the year. There is a cleared area near the van to set up a few tents if you want to invite along some friends.
Interaction with guests
We are happy to meet and greet you, explain the layout of the property. After showing you to the van you can shut out the rest of the world and relax in the abundance of nature
Other things to note
This site is perfect for a group booking (especially combined with our Tropicana Van site 100mt away) so please feel free to enquire before making your booking if you would like to do this.
Being able to drive right to the door of this van makes access much broader than the 70's Retro Caravan. It will also have a longer dose of sunlight (in winter) due to being on top of the hill.
**Please advise us of any furry friends you will be bringing with you.
We have loved giving the freedom to pet owners to bring along their furry mates however, we are now required to restict them from sleeping inside UNLESS guests can guarantee there is absolutely no trace on any rugs, bedding or furnishings. All droppings outside must be buried. We have purchased 'doggy' tents to borrow if you think this would be a better option to set up. Please be responsible and don't force us to restrict pets completely. Thank you :)
** Currently we have no running water in this van however, we will supply unlimited drinking water and you are only 50mt from the camp kitchen.

We are a creative couple who love to meet new people and share stories of our travels and life in this part of the World. Eric, a landscape gardener originally from Paris, found this beautiful property 20 years ago to plant his 1000 olive trees...a few remain on top of the hill! I am a fashion/interior/home wares designer with a passion for recycling, salvaging and giving old things new life.
