For many years me and my family have been visiting Twana Lodge. We always feel very welcome and very much at home. Arne and Chris are wonderful people, always willing to help. Parties at the bar are legendary. The accommodation is basic but always very clean. Food is available on request and boy they can cook! Meals are always very... More

Another couple on the trip said they booked their own for only $80 all up. On arrival at 7pm we compled... More

It was fine. The rooms were very bare and very cold, the cabins are far away from the facilities which makes a cold walk at night to the bathrooms. The communal kitchen and lounge area were great. Many cute dogs to play with. All in all, basic and fine for those roughing it.

I arrived 2 days before the start of my tour and was amazed at how much Twana felt like home. The food was great, the rooms while no 5 star were clean and well presented, I was after all starting a camping experience with Geckos tours. Would go back again. Chris made me feel so welcomed and safe in the... More

We liked Twana Lodge -it has a nice laid back atmosphere. The hosts were helpful and friendly. But I felt totally ripped off paying AUS75 for an airport transfer when I shared the taxi with 3 other people. If I had been on my own -ok-but for the four of us to pay AUS300 for that transfer was outrageous especially... More

My partner and I stayed at Twana as this was the stating point for our Gecko trip. The huts are very basic with single beds and no amenities, you have to take a short walk to the amenities block. The area around the lodge is well lit at night..We were not advised by Gecko that the lodge does not supply... More

Rooms were freezing cold with no portable heater; no hot water for showers; exhorbitant price for a vegetarian "meal" (2 vegetarian patties with bread); and miles from anywhere so couldn't even easily buy my own supplies
