    Terrible place for a couple wanting a cute getaway, the drive there ruined my tyres, very minimal cooking equipment, the bedroom is all single bunks, no wifi. Only stayed one night then left, even though we wanted 3 days. We still paid for the three days

    This was a great forest lodge: driving the hire car down a bush track was initially a bit daunting; but once we got there the lodge had everything we needed for a great break! There was a gas stove top; internal toilet; internal pot belly stove; a clean sleeping room; we looked a bit further & found a clock radio; lots of pans & cutlery/crockery. The kids loved exploring the property & loved the horse ride
