Had the Runway site to ourselves (apart from the wallabies and lots of birds) for 3 tranquil nights. Very clean (looked brand new) pit toilets, good dry firewood and Lee and Fred are terrific.
We will stay again.

Loved our stay at Mugul Mountain but wish it could have been longer.
We stayed on the disused airstrip. So much space & relaxing.
Lee & Fred wonderful hosts. So friendly and accommodating.
Best drop toilets I have come across!
Airstrip would be great for groups.
Would certainly return.

After setting up late afternoon under the fig tree we settled in to enjoy the peace and tranquility. Fred and Lee were very welcoming and their dogs were absolutly gorgeous and so well behaved. Lovely to hear of the history and plans for the future and to see your unique house. It was a privilege

Thanks for sharing your lovely property with us, we had a lovely peaceful nights sleep away from the noise of the highway, so much better than a noisy rest area. See you next time when we’re traveling that way

Turn off the highway and when you look ahead you straight away go into relax mode. It is so serene and tranquil here at the bottom of Mugul and watching the stars and shooting stars at night wow. You couldn't ask for better hosts than Fred and Lee. They even have a Airbnb if you need it.

Fabulous property. We had a very enjoyable couple of days here looking out to the mountain. Very welcoming greeting. Very dog friendly. We were given freshly picked passionfruit!
Excellent place away from noise just bird song.

Lovely little spot, with plenty of room near the fig tree, and water to use for washing up. The drop dunny is an easy walk and is clean and without smell. Lots of nice bird life and roos, and a lovely view of the mountain.
