    Camels, Sunsets, Sand Dunes and a Beach Ride
    Camel riding has been crossed off my bucket list, but now it’s been put back on again! We had the best time, smiled the whole way and took the photos to prove it. The scenery was spectating the staff were exceptional; nothing was too much trouble. An hour well spent!

    Sunset camels ride
    Wow what an amazing experience. The staff were very helpful and full of information about camels. The camels ride along the beach while the sun was setting and fantastic. We stopped a few time for staff to take photos for us. Well be going again

    Great Sunset Ride
    Had a fantastic ride across the sand dune and in the water on a sunset ride. The staff were fantastic and so friendly. The camels were amazing, so gentle although they did get a bit excited when we got to the water and started to splash. A great evening Highly recommended

    3 hour wait but worth it
    We visited Oakfield Ranch during the Easter long weekend. Apparently it is one of their busiest times of the year. We had to wait in a queue (no bookings allowed) for 3 hours before we had our chance to ride the camels. Overall the 20 minute camel ride was really great fun, despite the long wait. Staff were very friendly and offered to take photos of us on our phones for free during the ride. We rode along the sand dunes, to the beach, along the shore, and back. A great experience if you’re willing to wait. I would suggest to others to go when they are not busy as they usually don’t have such long queues apparently.

    An experience to tresury for a lifetime
    From the second we arrived, we were greeted with welcome arms. I originally booked just for myself as when I booked online there was only 1 spot available for the entire weekend that my partner and I planned to stay in the area. As I got there the staff asked if I would like my partner to join me but share a camel together. Which I was so surprised and made us both excited to experience the camel ride together. The camel ride was definitely an experience my partner and I will NEVER forget. We did the Sunset one and it’s a MUST!!! The staff were so informative. One of the staff members took so many photos for us during the entire ride and they are the most beautiful photos. We even got some videos too that were beautifully recorded. For an experience that’s been on my bucket list since I can remember, It definitely did not disappoint. You ALL are amazing!!!! Thank you for an incredible and unforgettable experience

    Sisters 50th - great experience and great memories for the whole family.
    Oakfield Staff were amazing, knowledgeable and made us feel so welcome. They took all our beautiful photos. Made my sisters 50th very special and the weather was perfect for the sunset walk on the beach. Of course the camels were amazing. THANKYOU.

Thank you, Oakfield Ranch, for such a lovely sunset ride! We took our hen (resplendent in hot pink) and 6 of her buddies along, for a surprise camel ride- and yes, she was surprised!!! Despite us arriving a little later than planned (apologies, again!!) due to the late return of our dolphin cruise (we went on Imagine- also highly recommended!), the staff could not have more welcoming, patient and kind. The camels are all so well cared for, and the staff knew them all individually, with all of their personality quirks. Amelia and Joel were super knowledgeable, and we all learnt far more than we expected to! A super fun, relaxed and beautiful way to experience a beautiful, Birubi sunset. Thank you, to all the crew- highly recommend!

It was an experience, yes. Staff were very nice but I'd suggest the shorter ride for anyone. The camels are all tethered to one another so you plod one way for half hour, then back. There isn't much to see, and the camels only go ankle deep in the white wash. An experience but doesn't need to be a long one.

Absolutely loved Oakfield Ranch's 1hr camel ride! The stunning beach views were unforgettable, and the staff? Super friendly and knowledgeable, making the whole experience a total delight. Highly recommend for an adventurous yet serene outing. The camels were gentle giants, and the whole vibe was just amazing. A must-do in Nelson Bay! 🐪✨
