  • Lovely warm clean cottage with comfy beds...

    Lovely warm clean cottage with comfy beds. We loved it. Ken and Josephine were excellent hosts. Jet boat tour up the Bridge to Nowhere was excellent - Ken was very knowledgeable and his and Josephine's family histories up the river gave a special richness to his stories. If you like to get off the grid and in to some of the most beautiful outback country, go here. My young adult kids loved it to - even without cell reception. They played cards and talked to us. Highly recommend Pipiriki Cottage
