They say home is where the heart is, even it it is spread over a million acres of remote Central Australia. Our lovely gardens provide an opportunity for you to take a break, unwind in what visitors refer to as an oasis. Our 27 accommodation rooms provide options for singles, families and groups in our en suite, family or budget rooms. Rooms with disabled access and full disabled bathrooms are available. We offer a perfect base from which to visit the Ayers Rock and Kings Canyon areas. Or stay a while and 'peel back the layers' by including our experiences, tours and hospitality in your travel plans. The historic Bough Shed offers the perfect place for a cold beer, hot cuppa or a lovely homestyle meal. A collection of our personal pictures and stories are available for visitors to share.
