We almost missed going here due to travel restrictions.. but turned off anyway and glad we did! The domain is down a peaceful rural road, about 11km from the state highway. The total area of the domain is 538ha, with the three freshwater lakes consisting of 305ha. It was winter when we visited, so it was purely a sight seeing visit, but would make a fantastic holiday spot for spring/summer! The water was absolutely crystal clear, and the sand was a gorgeous golden colour. Around the lakes are various walking tracks - we saw a huge flock of quails! There is ample room to take a boat and do an array of water activities. Also on site are two campgrounds which can hold up to 500 people combined - however neither have electricity, kitchen facilities or hot water. Definitely a great place to visit - even if it is just to take in the beauty of the place!
