Hubby and I took our 2 kids (2 year old and 2 months old) and our campervan for its maiden voyage to Mt Barney lodge. What a wonderful place it is. Apparently the campground was 1/3 full but it is one of these magical bushcamps where you barley notice there are neighbours around. The amenities were fantastic and there even was a fresh bunch of wild flower in the wc and fresh towels to use).
We stayed the weekend and just relaxed (no climbing Mt Barney for us). We went and swam in the creek (wonderful with kids, just a 6 min walk from the campground) and went for a 1h bushwalk to the rockwall in the late afternoon where we found 2 wild lemon trees.
The evenings were spent around the fire pit where we ate our 12h slow cooked lamb in the camp oven.
Couldn't have been better. Thanks Innes and Tracey and their team for making this place so wonderful,
