    An energy saving eco-resort!

    It’s an eco-resort so electricity is very limited for each day’s use. One has to ration the use of power so such a practice can make things a little inconvenient during a vacation. The property manager was nonetheless very helpful to explain how things work around the resort so that we can be more prepared for the stay. There is a fireplace in the living room but its heating efficiency for the whole house is not high. You can find an outdoor tub which is really cool. Lots of wallabies around the area and one just chose to camp outside the entrance. Opt for this resort if you like to do your vacation the eco-style.

    Winter trip

    Welcome reception is excellent! A wonderful surprise awaits at check-in and trust me when I say that you'll love it. The retreat is excellent though not suitable for cold weather as there's no heater or inverter in rooms. Sleeping on the sofa by the fireplace in the living room was a cosy and you can stargaze at the same time. Possums came by. Not recommended to feed though they are quite cute and cuddly. Let the wildlife stay wild. Best place to see the stars, to chase the southern lights & if you are crazy like my travel mate: bathe in the outdoor tub during winter. Haha.

    Fantastic views, peace and quite & great service!

    Stayed for one night with family visiting from the UK - wish we could have stayed longer. Paul was really welcoming and friendly and the cabin we had 'Wallaby Grasslands' was lovely. It was equipped with everything we needed. Plenty of space for 5 adults. Sitting on the deck cooking our BBQ for dinner, the cabin lived up to its name as all the wallabies came out. There were also a few possums around later that night which was awesome for our overseas visitors. The serenity there is awesome. I would highly recommend taking proper hiking shoes and supplies with you as the walking tracks available from the site are awesome. We weren't able to go too far on this trip due to time constraints, but can't wait to go back so we can explore further.

    If you need to get away from technology this is it

    Experience nature and peace and quiet. We had to talk and read as there was no phone reception or power for music or internet so if you need to get away from everything this is perfect.
