Excellent for families who want to let the kids run free. Or simply relax in the peaceful surroundings.
Basic, no frills holiday cottage set amongst old gums and abundant wildlife - kangaroos, wallabies, wombats, possums and native birds.
Long winding driveway leads past eucalypts to the cottage nestled near a seasonal winter creek.
Pets are allowed additional charge - however the property is not fenced.
