For the more energetic guests, take a walk through the pine forest, listen to the frogs as you walk past the dams and up to the shack. Take in the view, and then descend to the 100 acres on the far side of the property.
On warm days the more daring may fancy a dip in the dam. If not, why not try your hand at yabbying in one of the 7 dams

At night, enjoya barbecue, watch the sun set and marvel at the stars on a clear night.
