A lovely place to stay but need to make it clear that no meals are served after 5pm on a Sunday as closest shop 2hour drive away on bad roads. We were fortunate to catch staff before they left and were able to get some food to prepare ourselves They were very accommodating.

Relaxing Bush Stay

We only stayed one night with 2 teenagers but this was a very comfortable & relaxing stay. The girls loved the stream walk & swim in the cool swimming hole, finished off with a relaxing spa amidst the tress & native bush. Listening to the birds & tree life whilst sitting back in the spa pool was very relaxing. The fact that there was little internet was a bonus in getting the girls off their devices and into games & reading. The restaurant was very comfortable with a good menu & food. Certainly recommend this as a place to chill out for a couple of days. The beaches are a short drive away.
