    The Outpost is a great place to stay especially if you have a few families we had 4 families and all had a room each, the kitchen and lounge are large so it was great not to be on top of each other. Kids loved the swimming pool and the large property for playing spotlight and tag. Westhaven is such a beautiful spot and we will be heading back for sure. Was awesome to be able to bring our dogs too they had a great time. Cheers Greg and Rose or an amazing weekend,
