We stayed in one of the three-bedroomed cottages for the two nights we were at this resort. It IS a fair way out of Albury [ 20 mins drive], so next time we will be prepared. By the time we arrived on the first afternoon, it was too late to enjoy more than a fraction of the many amenities available at this quiet resort. The cottage was very well equipped with everything a traveller could want. I think the best item of equipment was the full sized fridge freezer.
On our second day, we used the free gas bbq for our tea. Unfortunately, there are some disgusting people around who never bother to clean up after themselves. Our son-in-law and I did not tell the two women about the cockroaches that were stuck to the grease on the larger bbq until after we had eaten.
This resort has some peacocks wandering around who were originally from the nearby trout farm that closed down seven years ago. On our first night, we were woken at dawn with what sounded like a pride of ostriches tap-dancing on our tin roof. The peacocks love to fly onto the roof and make themselves known. On the second night, it rained, so we were saved from being woken so early by the rain.
All in all, we enjoyed our brief stay, and would certainly stay longer at another time.
