We just had a few days at Spicers Canopy and were thoroughly impressed. We went mid week and had the place to ourselves for most of the time. Our host, Chris, was attentive without being in your face all the time. Nothing seemed to be too much trouble. The food was excellent and plentiful. The accomodation was comfortable but the shared bathroom might be a turn off for some people. I think the tents might be a bit cold in the middle of Winter but the hot water bottle in the bed was a pleasant surprise. The guided walk was informative but not too challenging, although the excuse of having to walk for an hour and a half to get to there to "minimise the carbon footprint" was laughable since the bottled water on the bedside table comes from Norway. The view from the tent over the rolling hills was calming, and an entire morning lolling about on a beanbag under the shade of a few gum trees was very relaxing. I highly recommend Spicers Canopy and will likely return.
