We had a delicious lunch in front of the fireplace at this estate. The atmosphere is serene and relaxed with beautiful big windows taking in the surrounds. The staff are extremely friendly. Proceeds from the venue go towards medical care in an isolated region of Papua New Guinea. Highly recommended.

We had our wedding here at the end of March, 2015. We have always loved the area, and were looking for somewhere that we, and our guests, could turn the event into a weekend away.

Recently had a great extended weekend stay here with a group of 12 family members & self-catered. Everything was fantastic, the rooms were spacious & comfortable, everyone had an ensuite & plenty of space in their bed rooms. We also had a spacious living room/kitchen with a deck off to the side. There was plenty of living & relaxing space.... More

We stayed overnight for an end of year party. The room we stayed in was not that big but just the right size for an overnight stay. There is a common area where colleagues can laze around and have a bit of chat. The main hall where we had dinner was able to accommodate close to a 100 people. Food... More

Over a three course dinner with local wines we were able to conduct our business and enjoy a very pleasant evening.

Came for a wedding; and it's pretty darn average.
