Don’t take the name personally: it’s actually a wise move to pitch a tent on this peaceful stretch of flat ground. From Portland, drive west for 22 km along the road to Nelson and take the signposted turn-off north onto the T&W Rd. Drive a further 20 km to the signposted turn-off to Jackass Fern Gully, 300 m off the T&W Rd.
