Having just returned from the Berkely River I can only say this is a truly special little gem of a destination.
Its facilities are all brand new and function in fine form, as is the attitude and can-do spirirt of the exceptional staff and managment. Among its many highlights are the food & beverage service (amazing quality and the cooking style and techniques enlisted by Chef Jimmy seemed more reflective of a high end Sydney restaurant... and this is about the most remote place in the country!)
A very respectable wine list served with the very knowledgable assistance of Marty the Maitre'D made dining a joy.The rooms all have king beds, are spotless and have a sea view and what a view! Long white beaches, and nobondy...read NOBODY on them! This is seriously remote luxury.
Another highlight was the river cruise under the care of Captain Karl a veritable mountain of a main (apparenyl he's 6ft 9 inches in the old money!). Great attention to detail on this cruise including croc sightings, cold beer, chilled champagne, tasty smoked salmon and cold chicken lunch and most important plenty of shade and an on-board loo!), All repleat with swimming in fresh water pools and showering under waterfalls, amazing! I can only imagine the magic of this place in the wet season?
Only someone with enormous courage, energy and inspired vision could create this place, in this place! Australia is all the better for it.
