About Us

who we are

We welcome you to 'Adadale', our family's dairy farm situated on the Mary River.


Our family has operated this property as a dairy farm for over 60 years.

We hope you enjoy the serenity and spectacular scenery which we are blessed with every day, and hope to welcome you back again.

We have some basic guidelines for our guests to follow to ensure a great and safe time is had by all. If you have any issues, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

why choose us?

Our camp grounds

We are situated along 5 km’s of the great Mary River on 580 acres of a
working Dairy farm, one of the most beautiful and picturesque of
any dairy farm in Qld.

Our camp grounds are unique

We are a commercial  dairy farm  producing 2.5 million litres of milk
each year and as such, we leave our area in a natural state,
as much as possible.

It is not a manicured lawn like some campgrounds, but just tidy  and natural.

did you know?

The river is pristine and there is a colony of platypus
that lives on a section of river. Sometimes, early in the
morning if you are quiet, you may see them
playing in the river

We also have the unique Mary River Lungfish in one section of the river, they are often sighted but are protected and must be left alone. If caught while fishing, as with all fish caught, they must be let go immediately.


We are a commercial dairy farm, and as such you may see a few of our beautiful ladies wandering the grounds. If you’re lucky you may see a baby calf being born.




We spent Saturday night at your campsite and enjoyed ourselves immensely! Beautiful morning to catch reflections in the water.
