About Us

Emu Creek Extreme Retreat began in 1992, Approved in 1993 and was officially opened to the public as an Off Road recreational park in 1996.
The Birthplace of rock crawling in Australia, Emu Creek and its Battle of the States competition was legendary and unsurpassed.

In April 2017 new property owners Frank & Lynne hope to restore the park to its former glory, and endeavor to maintain a safe, recreational aspect of four wheel driving with a great camp setting for all types of enthusiasts.

Entering the year 2020, the 4wd park is 90% cleared, infrastructure has been replaced and upgraded. New secluded and private camping areas are available for those that are self-sufficient.
Fast forward to 2022 and we have now experienced all the drought and flood conditions, not to mention Covid-19, which has been a challenge.
But our facilities are better than ever! With new shed/workshop, renovated cabins (with power), and a second shower block to be added to Twin Dam campground in the coming months!
The campgrounds are lush and green, and we do our best to keep them mowed regularly for the added pleasure of our guests. 

Please pay us a visit, so you too can enjoy the 4wding and camping that Emu Creek Retreat has on offer!
Don’t be afraid to come say ‘hi’ and meet some of the Emu Creek team 😀

Canine Companion
Mocha is a frequent visitor to the property.

A pure bred Doberman she is relatively keen on the farm life, and is often found in the front seat of the ute by day, or sleeping at the camp fire by night. Don’t worry she is friendly, and so long as your pets are friendly, they are welcome too!
