Relax in front of the cosy, wood fired heater to watch TV ----- or lose yourself in a good book. There is a variety of indoor games and lots of perfect holiday reading in our collection of books and magazines.
Kangaroos, wombats and a variety of native birds frequent the property, which backs on to a nature reserve overlooking the Kangaroo River. There is a 0.5 km native plant identification walk on the property for you to learn about some of the native flora. For those energetic souls, or those who love a casual stroll, walking to the Kangaroo River through the nature reserve provides for some very scenic bush walking through Scribbly Gum forest and dry creek bed (usually!) for a refreshing swim.
We have just completed the hot outdoor shower and bathtub for your enjoyment. It is very relaxing and romantic to watch the stars from the hot bath tub or for a quick shower after a hard day's enjoyment of outdoor pursuits.
A ping pong table, pool table and foosball table are also provided for your enjoyment. There is plenty of space for backyard ball games.
