.Great social environment - daily activities, great hangout spaces (pool, snooker, beach volleyball, hammocks, indoor and outdoor lounges)
.great little cafe with cheap meals and good juices from dawn to midnight
.decent bathroom and laundry facilities
.large and fun bar, free shuttle buses to and from town around the clock.
.the bush tucker walk is so informative, and entertaining.
.we stayed in the lodges (permanent tent structures) by a lake - this was very very basic, tiny and cramped, and a bit shoddy. The canvas ceiling was thick with mould, which set off asthma in both my partner and i.
.check-in took bloody ages, the front desk was totally understaffed.
.being a large commercial joint meant that it lacked that homely feel. Deposits needed for everything. You never get to forget that this is a business.
.the kitchen is totally rudimentary, basically a tarp-covered area under trees, and very far away. Clearly to discourage cooking for yourself, as opposed to buying from the cafe.
.the cafe food is ok, but the brekky was kinda bad, the kind of food made by someone at home who can't really cook. Eggs fried hard and dry, mushies oversalted, dried packet herbs used on everything. $15 is a joke.
.the party vibe meant that it was very noisy until 3am.
