nightfall camp has be come a twice yearly "must do" for me. I've been to many other destination/wildness places but this one surpasses them. I truly feel it's the wonderful, positive and relaxing vibe that brings me back, and that's because of the wonderful people who own and run Nighfall. Best food, good, clean, hearty and stunning surroundings. Just book... More

I am making Nightfall a yearly *thing*. This is truly an exceptional place to stay. I love camping and I love luxury accommodation too… so I knew I’d love Nightfall Camp when I booked, but it wasn't until I arrived here that I realised just how awesome this place is. Nightfall isn’t just a case of someone mixing camping and... More

Hi Nick, There was always a risk in bringing the dream of nightfall camp to reality: would people understand/want/become passionate about our unique style of luxury camping? The answer has been a resounding YES ... and it's both inspiring and humbling to read reviews like yours. Thanks Nick for taking the time to write such a descriptive account. We also... More

My partner and I have just returned from two nights at Nightfall and are lost for words. I've never experienced anything like it, amazing. The location is just beautiful - surrounded by wildlife, stunning scenery and is gorgeous no matter the weather. So much thought and attention to detail has gone into the tents - beautiful soaps, shampoo, coffee, tea,... More

Hello Christine, Each time guests like yourselves leave, Mr is a little deflated - it takes time to work-up his Jack Russell Terrier charm on the next visitors! Thanks for your great review.

What more can I add to the previous reviews of this wonderful hide-away in the shadow of Lamington National Park? The location is fabulous - nearly 300 acres of rainforest to explore on the property in the beautiful valley of Christmas Creek, swimming holes, and walks to Westray's Grave and the Stinson Wreck a stone's throw away. The tents are... More

We'd been a bit skeptical about the whole glamping experience, often wondering whether it'd be worth the cost. Heidi and Steve completely changed this mindset. Nightfall Wilderness Camp is tucked away in a rarely-visited and non tourist-infested part of south-east Queensland, about 45km beyond Beaudesert. Secluded in a deep valley with truly breathtaking peaks shooting up either side of Nightfall,... More

Hello Ian, Your words paint a great picture of life at nightfall - thanks for making time to reflect publicly on your stay. We're also glad to change your thinking about the cost of 'glamping', in comparison to camping: so worth it when you need time to spoil yourself with a little 'raw' luxury and tailored meals delivered on cue!...

It's been almost 12 months since we last visited nightfall and the experience only gets better. When we visited in March 2014 it was early days for Steve and Heidi since then they have tweaked and fine tuned Nightfall to provide an excellent level of service, stunning and unique accommodation all in the wilderness setting of Christmas creek.

Tucked away in a secluded part of Lamington National Park, Nightfall Wilderness Camp is an idyllic retreat and unique experience for anyone who wants to be enjoy the raw elements of nature, in luxurious and comfortable surroundings.
