Whether you’ll be living here 7 days a week, or just whilst you’re here to study, our self contained cabins and camping sites (powered and unpowered) cater for all budgets.

There are no lease agreements or bonds required.

If you have friends or family coming to visit whilst you study at ANU or CIT, we have 50 cabins available, 24 powered campsites and 70 unpowered campsites so there is plenty of room for singles, couples, families and groups.  Pet friendly cabins and campsites are available (at the Manager’s discretion).
