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.

  • location is very quite and peaceful

    location is very quite and peaceful. However I do prefer to have a mixer tap in both kitchen and face washing basin as water was soo cold and fill the sink and use was not a hygiene idea. also bush walkways should be clearly marked as most marks has gone to avoid lost the track.
