This is a really great place to spend a few days. Toilets and showers are great. Nice and hot showers with plenty of pressure. The bird life is prolific and Mitch gives talks and a slide show presentation on Bush Tucker and Bush Medicines that is really interesting. He makes a pot of billy tea on a campfire and serves with a treat of native food which is very tasty.

Spacious camp sites, excellent amenities and such lovely hosts - we loved our camping experience here with all the kookaburras and wildlife. Mike and Michi are great hosts and good to see the kids out and about exploring their backyard. Will definitely visit again
