We spent two nights here in October. As you will gather from previous reviews this place is hit and miss. We got a miss. Booking was difficult - it took a couple of weeks of emails and phone calls via the agent (you cannot book direct) before we could even confirm that our booking had been taken. Given that it is in the middle of nowhere we requested evening meals for both nights. We arrived around 5.30. Nobody around to meet us - just a note on the restaurant door to say that the keys were in the cabin. There were no other guests. We phoned to find out when dinner would be to be told that we 'had only booked for the second night'. We opened up our cabin to find that it was (i) dirty and (ii) there was no toilet paper or shampoo/shower gel. So after a long drive the first thing we had to do was get back in the car and drive 50km back to Meningie to get some food and toiletries. Not ideal. The second night we got our dinner but only, I suspect, because they had a pre-booked coach load and it was convenient for them to serve another two portions. It was the smallest and most expensive fish and chips we have ever had. The cabins are large, well-equipped and the views from the terraces are wonderful but they are expensive so they need to be clean and supplied with basics such as toiletries. We cannot comment on the activities such as bush-tucker walks and kayaking as there was nobody around to ask. It is in a beautiful location and there is plenty for photographers and wildlife watchers but it cannot be recommended until it is managed properly.
