  • Wonderful old homestead

    Wonderful old homestead. Spacious. Great views. A very good base to explore the northern area from. Sarah andChris answered all our questions happily and we enjoyed the flora and fauna around the sanctuary- the kaka and banded rail were a delight.

  • Ideal place for anyone interested in conservation

    Ideal place for anyone interested in conservation. The birdlife was wonderful. The walking track was well maintained and a must to do. There is plenty to do in this location including great swimming spots.
