Breathtaking sunset and kangaroos
Fabulous overnight stay with exceptionally friendly hosts. Loads to see and do without leaving the grounds. Our 5 year old loved waking up to kangaroos and the sunset was breathtaking. Definitely recommend and we’ll be back for a longer stay soon.

The views are great, there was plenty of space and Bernadette and all the family were wonderful, showed us their beautiful home and oriented us on arrival. There was plenty of space for all the campers. Toilet facilities were clean and close by. Thanks for a great weekend which we thoroughly enjoyed. We hope to be back soon.

We had a delightful stay for one night in a lush green paddock with great views of the surrounding countryside. The toilet block was clean and large and the beautiful old homestead was fascinating with it’s gallery and cafe. Had great coffee and scones and an excellent toastie. Bernadette was very helpful and we had an interesting chat with her and her family. Such a peaceful spot with cows and alpacas nearby.
