Testimonials

Have stayed here before – loved it then and love it even more now. We have traveled a lot around this beautiful country and this place is very much on top of the list of best places to stay. The beauty, the silence, the wildlife, the walking tracks, the cabin is fantastic. Everything you need is there and my husband panned up some great pieces of gold. Will be back.
