Lake front with its own jetty. 4 bedroom Lockwood

 We had the most amazing stay at Quamby it is a very comfortable holiday house with everything you need for a super relaxing holiday. Fantastic views of the lake surrounded by bush and bird life. Couldn't have asked for better and we will be back for sure!!
