  • Great fun, awesome spot, just what we were looking for

    Great fun, awesome spot, just what we were looking for. Brent was a great and helpful host. If you like getting away from all mod cons and have an adventure this is a fantastic spot. Hard to rate as it is a cabin in the woods(what we called it) and didn't have all gadgets, but a feast for nature lovers. Lots of birds around the cabin and no cell coverage, so had a great time with kids. Pack a deck of cards and a few drinks and just enjoy.

    this is a great wee hut in the bush that is definitely the next best option to being in the hills without having to carry a heavy pack for hours. Warm, cozy & a great range with efficient wetback.

  • Bach was good first night

    Bach was good first night. Second night Toby had a barking good time. A hunter further up let shots of every 15 to 20 minutes. We ended up going home late that evening due to noise.

  • We loved the place

    We loved the place. Thoroughly enjoyed every bit of our stay. Amazing to live techno free and spending time with each other. Very quiet, peaceful. On a clear sky beautiful star watch. Please be sure to bring a torch, candles and Mozzie repellants. Take easy foods and mini gas cooker for cooking food.
