Wow I loved this magical place!
Driving here itself was fun once I got myself on the right motorway. The last gravel bit was kind of an adventure esp since at one point I was going a bit too fast for my own good.
My room was slightly smaller vs what I expected and the cabins/rooms were closer to each other vs what I expected. But it was still perfect.
It was an expensive place to stay but considering the size of the property (4000 acres) and that it was 50% occupied only when I was here, you can imagine how secluded and serene this place was. Woke up Sunday morning & expected a lazy lounging morning, looked out to see the interplay between the sunrise, the blankets of mist wrapped around the 1832 homestead, the birds chirping away. It was like a painting but better!
Add to that since the meals were all inclusive (only a service fee charged for room delivery) once in my room with the private heated pool (25-28 degrees) the double facing fireplace, the super comfy sofa with angora wool throw, super chill music, free welcome bottle of red wine, 2 patios with great views, organic tea leaves from Byron Bay and the best stocked minibar, nice clean bathtub with a view, etc the room was just too comfortable... if time and budget permitted, I could have easily holed up myself for days.
But it was definitely worth venturing out to see the wombats, wallaroos etc. The 530 pm safari was a highlight (you learn a bit re: their conservation efforts) While room service was a treat, the meals were worth venturing out for. Even breakfast was excellent!
-got charged $12 for toothbrush/paste.
-Left room at 5 pm with a "step in" sign (= clean the room!) came back 845 pm room was not yet cleaned/turndown and my lunch was still in the room.
