Just returned from a 2 nights stay at the lovely camp. They do the luxury safari style tents very well - we have stayed at some other luxury tented camps in Australia and this was by far the best - tents on raised wooden platforms, with outdoor (but private) bathrooms. Tents are well separated (we were in Possum) and although only shielded from nature by nets, very private. You can put roll-up blinds down but we kept them open to awake to filtered sunlight. The sounds of the birds and animals is fantastic - we heard possums but didnt see them (if you leave the tents open they can come in - one visitor even had a glider in their tent). We saw several kangaroos every day. There are lots of mosquitos but plenty of spray and coils provided. One night I did go for an evening walk with no anti-bug spray on - big mistake as I was bitten about 25 times!
We took out the free kayaks on 2 occasions - we are very inexperienced so fell in the river both times! The water is clean and shallow, so not a problem - although we had to get a kayak rescued on one occasion as it floated away! The staff were very helpful and understanding.
We had dinner at the Gunyard restaurant which was pricey but great food - and when service was a bit slow (they were full) we were offered free drinks. On the second night we had flathead and chips at the Husskie pub and then a deluxe dessert and drinks at the Gunyard which worked very well.
Breakfast is also great - large quantity and high quality, so we needed only a small nibble for lunch.
On this occasion I was staying with my sister so we had requested twin beds - the tent is so large it can accomodate the king bed and a double put-up bed. Quality of bedding was lovely and we both slept well to the sounds of nature. Shower is powerful, water warm and excellent quality toiletries.
Everything about this place is peaceful and relaxing, and the staff are super helpful. I intend to come back with my husband.
