    Great place to kick back and watch the wildlife

    A great place for couples that want to get away from it all but close enough to experience some great restaurants

    Ultimate chill pill

    Views of rolling hills went on forever. Watched a mob of wallabies dance and wrestle to the sunrise. Serenaded by many species of bird during breakfast. Soooo relaxing. Kids loved feeding the ducks and Guinea fowl. Super clean and cosy. Look forward to returning when the dam is full and cattle grazing.
