This is great value, an opportunity to stay with a couple of friends and use the Postman's Cottage as a base for the Flinders Range N.P. Seals playing at Admirals Arch, and I saw Echidna at Remarkable Rocks. Postman's Cottage is definitely a 'one off' experience, quirky and homely in a very original and cosy way. Full of history, it is definitely different, and national parks have provided an amazing modern bathroom to enjoy.... it comes as a surprise when you open the door. It was too warm to light the fire, it was tempting, but worth coming back when it's a little cooler.
