The end of January is a quite time, so there were few people about. Suited us! Due to the low number of visitors only the Buck and Trout restaurant was... More

Shared a weekend to the Drak with a huge group of Harley Owners mates and what an awsome time we had. Got drenched with a huge storm into the Drak but the great reception of the management and staff made a difference to the warm welcome. Quickly the boys found the bar and the girls the good food and all... More

Dear Neville, It was certainly a wet ride for your crew to us on the Friday, and even after some tired bikers struggled to get warm, it was fantastic having every single person up here with us. We certainly made some new friends, and I am sure will be seeing all of the good HOG friends at the berg again... More
