Description

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 gravel 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.

The Bush Lodges fridge, lights and most of the hot water heating are powered by hydro water generation

    Long and very rough farm track to lodge, only really suitable for 4SUV Bach extremely basic, with very scruffy uncomfortable sofa. It was sagging and had holes in it. Interior gloomy. Bedding clean but felt damp.

    Wow, this is one very special spot, thank you for sharing it with us! The accommodation and facilities were great, nothing to do but sit back and enjoy the peace and tranquillity of the Coromandel.

  • What a wonderful spot, so peaceful

    What a wonderful spot, so peaceful. We we're the only people there and had three days without seeing a soul, just birds and trees. Walk to Pothole Falls a real little adventure. Great experience.
