The Lodge is run and operated by locals and is located within the walking distance from the centre of town. The Napatana Lodge has large bungalows located at the rear and small bungalows and...

Loved every moment of staying here! I only had a short 2 week stint doing volunteer physio work at the hospital but it was one that was very memorable. Rooms were very clean and all the staff put the time in to say g'day and share some hometown knowledge. Hope to travel that way again in the future :)
