I stayed here in a 6 share dorm for 3 nights. The dorms are pretty nice and clean wooden cabins with a fridge in each room. The place is a kind of a camping with cabins in the forest. Showers and toilet are ok. Cooking building is big and nice. Close to one of the many beaches, but a bit far away (aprox. 10 km) from the shops and other beaches around Salamander, Nelson and Shoal Bay. The kangaroo pet (named Josephine) is awesome and you'll see a few other wildlife.
