There's something very special about this beautiful place - the expansive sky, excellent tracks, the smell of the dirt, the lake that's walking distance from the campground. I spent much of my time walking around the lake and it's quiet & peaceful. Stay for 2 or 3 nights because one just isn't long enough to really breathe it in. Yes,... More

We travelled here in early May, not totally sure of what the homestead would be like. Getting there was something of an adventure as the property is located well out at the end of the East Mac ranges and is quite remote.

Our accommodation was in the 'Cottage'... More

It's a bit of a trip in, but well worth it. Lovely quiet, grassed campsites for two or three vans ( we were there by ourselves for 2 of our 3 nights.
