  • We loved our experience of staying at the hut, lots of character...

    We loved our experience of staying at the hut, lots of character in a secluded valley with its own private bush bath. Beautiful watering holes and walks to explore it’s a great place to relax.

  • Awesome location if you like being in the bush

    Awesome location if you like being in the bush. Very secluded. The hut is great, with an awesome deck with bath over looking the bush.

  • This property is as it says a bush hut away from it...

    This property is as it says a bush hut away from it all with a coal range and a lovely outdoor bath which to view the stars from at Night. The hut has everything you need with a great setting in the bush away from our busy life. We loved the place and the Kids had a super time as well. We also enjoyed the farm tour which was a great experience for us all. Thanks Scott and Karyn
