  • Where did the name Ketchup's Bank Glamping come from?
    You’re probably thinking, ‘What does this place have to do with sauce?’ Well the Ketchup's name actually pays tribute to its early settler history. During early Australian settlement this area was used by timber cutters and bullock teams. A team of forty bullocks would pull loads of timber up the steep bank which is now our driveway and the leader would yell “ketch-up, ketch-up!” to keep the drove moving and make sure they didn’t start getting pulled backwards. The steep hill has since become known as ‘Ketchup’s Bank.’ which the original owners fondly named the business after.
