Loved it! The Gorge was amazing and our Tour guide was great. Pool was a welcomed relief on a hot day and food was lovely. Only negative was the corrugated road in. Suggest checking before travel.

Tour was included in our three night package. Zee was our guide and it was excellent. Really informative about the family who runs the three stations that make up the Cobbold area, the history, the wildlife. Due to how late in the season we visited tours were limited to the mornng and we were happy for that. Only three groups on early tour so only one boat in the gorge at a time. Gorge boat cruise was amazing. Narrow electric punt steered through the rock formations. Saw a small fresh water croc and a couple of large monitors. Easy walk up to the terrifying (for me) glass bridge. Once I conqured my fears it was pretty amazing. Another group was down in the gorge while we were up there. Also inlcuded in our package was a 15 minute helicopter tour. It was excellent. You have no idea of what's around you from down on the ground. Both the gorge tour and the helicopter flight are highly recommended.

We stayed 3 nights in a Boundary Hut, just brilliant ! Cute and cosy with air con. Tour was fantastic, learnt so much and the scenery is amazing. Zee did a great job at Tour guide, Thankyou! Loved the infinity pool, so refreshing to cool off as the days were really hot..Bistro was good, limited menu and specials seem to sell out fast. Tasty food though. A great vibe just relaxing around the bar, plenty of wildlife to see too. Wonderful place to escape to, highly recommended. 🤠

Stunning place with informative and light hearted tour. Could only get a one night room as so popular (even off peak - October) but would have liked to stay 3 days. Room was wonderful. Clean, well appointed. Pool is a great feature after a hot tour and meals good. Wine was a nice price. Great recreation options. Only negative was the appallingly bad 45km of corrugated dirt/gravel road to the front gate. Our sedan just survived even travelling slowly and we heard stories of damaged caravans and vehicles to the road. So use the right vehicle, take care and hope the road is graded before you go.

Hi Earl, thanks for taking the time to review, and we're delighted you enjoyed your stay with us. The drive in to us is on a public gazetted road managed by the local council, and it does depend on when it was graded as to how 'smooth' the trip is - however you did the right thing in taking it easy and driving to the conditions. We're glad you came to visit.
