We have been here many times and just keep gravitating back. Fantastic location for a conference, romantic get away or peaceful time out. The location is short 1 hour drive from Brisbane and 10 minutes drive from Malaney and sits in a very pretty peaceful part of the world. Accomodation is magnificent and food and services are 5 star. Just...
