ACTIVITIES

Activities within the camp include canoeing, bike riding, bushwalking, birdwatching & spotlighting. Or spend an afternoon on the verandah reading that book you have been meaning to get to for ages, keeping an eye out for a passing kangaroo or the majestic black cockatoo.

The camp is the perfect base for exploring the white sand beaches and pristine national parks of Jervis Bay. Freedive with seals, go snorkelling at Murrays Beach, bushwalking in the Booderee National Park, spot dolphins and whales on a bay cruise or bike ride the White Sands Walk to Hyams Beach. Slightly further afield is Arthur Boyd’s gift to the nation, Bundanon, with it’s spectacular gallery and beautiful scenery, as well as local vineyards with cellar doors and the pretty towns of Berry, Milton and Kangaroo Valley.

THE ENVIRONMENT

From Paperbark Camp:

“Our objective is to provide a unique and authentic Australian bush experience that is both ecologically and financially sustainable. In the 90’s when planning initially commenced, the concept of ‘ecotourism’ was in its infancy, and the sustainable approach we developed came more from an instinctive desire to maintain the natural peace and beauty of the pristine environment. However the timing was spot-on and as climate change concerns grew, so did the desire for people to seek out holidays that leave as little impact on the natural environment as possible. Since then, planning controls and expectations have increased so that all new developments must adhere to strict building codes that aim for sustainability whether it is a 200 room hotel in the city or a smaller establishment such as ours in a more natural environment.

As a result of this increase in awareness, ecotourism is more far reaching and holistic in its approach. The bar has been set a lot higher and it is no longer good enough to just have solar panels and dual flush toilets! To be considered a true ecotourism product we must work to ensure the guest experience goes much further to increase knowledge of the environment we are in, the local community and its culture, and also how we can improve efforts in our every day lives to decrease waste and live a more sustainable existence. Paperbark Camp has been recognised for its work in this area by receiving Advanced Eco Accreditation from Ecotourism Australia.

Over the years we have worked continually to improve our efforts at sustainability and this now extends to purchasing policies where possible, sourcing local products and services and growing our own produce (which has mixed results in a Eucalypt forest!). We are always looking at new ways we can operate to minimise our impact on the environment.”

Measures taken to reduce the environmental impact include:
Architect designed buildings in sympathy with the landscape.
Tents have solar powered electric 12 volt lighting.
Only natural ventilation is used, no air conditioning.
No large trees have been removed.
Shower heads are low flow.

Driven piles and shallow foundations only- all buildings are built off the ground
Continuous removal of exotic species – inc. blackberry and asparagus fern
Guest vehicles kept away from the camp,
Use of electric powered buggy
Strict adherence to the local Council recycling programs.
Use of recycled paper products where possible.
Rainwater used where possible.
To protect the fragile wetland ecosystem, wastewater is pumped 900 metres from the site and processed by Council treatment works. The pumping system is protected by no-flow and level alarms.
Biodegradable cleaning agents and chemicals are used.
Canoes, kayaks and bicycles are provided free for guest use.

Placed thoughtfully amongst the soaring eucalypts and intriguing paperbarks, the safari style glamping tents are built above the ground for your privacy and comfort and feature all the creature comforts and hotel amenities you would expect for a luxe camping experience.

Each glamping tent features an open-air private ensuite with freestanding bush bath-with-a-view, perfect for spotting kangaroos and birdwatching whilst you relax amongst the bubbles.

All accommodation includes split king size beds, bespoke locally made furniture as well as a wrap around verandah for whiling away a few hours with just the sounds of the bush and maybe a good book to accompany.

The Gunyah treehouse provides a central communal area for Paperbark Camp glamping guests. Enjoy fresh, seasonal menus with regional wines and locally brewed beer on the wide verandahs during the warmer months, and in the colder months snuggle up in the cosy lounge or roast marshmallows around the campfire.
