My wife and I fell in love with the place. Best weekend of our lives we reckon. If you are not afraid of roughing it a little , we cannot recommend booking The Stargazer hut enough. While it wouldnt suit everyone as its small and has no facilities or even electricity [who needs it!] we found the facilities we could use in the main lodge were more than adequate. Nothing like drifting off to sleep in your partners arms looking up through the glass roof as the stars put on a display and the night life of the bush comes alive outside your hut. Sharing our breakfast on the step of our hut with the local weka was just brilliant as well. We will be back! PS the other chalets in the bush looked really beautiful as well
