This is a hosted stay through Hipcamp, below is the information provided by the Host regarding their offering. Semaphore Farm is a 400-acre property with convict history, bordering the Port Arthur historic site. It is a private timber reserve and a working forest farm. We have a combination of native eucalypt forest and plantation, and we grow hay and our own beef. Offering many walking and bike trails through the 150 acres of forest and pasture accessible to campers. The campsite has spring water on tap, a hot shower, toilet,rustic camp kitchen, wood stove, gas bbq, level sites and campfire when permitted. Firewood is included (donations welcomed). The Port Arthur Historic site and a safe swimming beach are within walking distance with Safety Cove and Remarkable Cave only a 5-minute drive away. Longer walks including the Three Capes tracks are easily accessible. Launch your boat nearby to access good fishing or fish for squid off the Port Arthur jetty. Plenty of wildlife to see at night and birds during the day. You might even see our resident Wedgetail Eagle! Dog-friendly (must be under control/on a lead/contained).
