Get back to nature at Coolendel


Flash Camp has ventured back into the South Coast hinterland with two great camps on the Upper Shoalhaven River: Camp Hollow, with six spacious 6m bell tents perfect for individual tent bookings, and Camp Nest, comprising six 5m bell tents perfect for a group takeover. Each has its own communal areas and cooking facilities. 

Make your days as relaxed or adventure-filled as you desire, and spend your night watching the sun set as you cosy up to your own campfire. Coolendel is ideal for couples and small groups of friends; the camps also lend themselves to weddings, wellness retreats, corporate groups and small special events.

This experience is unhosted, though we’ve provided some fantastic communal facilities for you to enjoy. Simply turn up with your clothes, food and drink - the rest is taken care of!
