We were disappointed to only have 24 hours at the Moonbah Hut and felt we were a million miles from the city bustle. We all learnt to fly fish with our very patient and knowledgable angler, Brett and our children aged 10 and 12 were busy swimming in the dam with Buster, checking the chickens and then built and tended to the BBQ fire to cook dinner. No phone coverage or electronic games to interrupt the peace and tranquility. What a treat! We definitely plan to return and check out the River Cabin. And thanks for all the nice touches, very nice bottle of red wine, cheese, chocolates and coffee, linen, towels and toiletries. Disappointed it was too hot to light the open fire and combustion stove... Next time.
