Wake up to the idyllic sounds of the birds and running stream in these beautiful lodges. They are in secluded bush and are a 2km drive up a farm track, on Whitestar Station in Colville, 25mins north of Coromandel township on a 1260 hectare sheep and beef farm.

You can cook on the wetback wood fire (wood provided) gas cooker or go outdoors and light the BBQ and take in your serene surroundings.

    Amazing surroundings!great(steep) bush walks,beuatiful views from top of the ranges.kids spent hours in stream looking for "crystals".found heaps.few minutes drive to waitete bay.lodge basic but clean.flushing toilets,hot shower but stream just few meters from lodge.no toaster.two plate gass cooker we only used to boil water for hot drinks.we cooked dinners on bbq.the only thing would be that our light truck would not make it to lodge if the gravel road was wet coz its steep at places.
