With only ten guests this retreat is intimate and allows an immersive getaway into nature. With a fantastic team of field guides experience the conservation efforts and learn about the mobs of kangaroos, emus, and other abundant wildlife. With a ‘down to earth’ yet attentive level of service, the house itself is fully staffed so your primary concern when returning from a day playing in the wild is relaxing. The farmhouse has pressed metal ceilings, cool flagstone floors beneath shady verandas with an all-encompassing view on all sides. The rooms are large and rustically chic, each of the five doubles individually designed. With air conditioning and heating dependent on the season to ensure the perfect temperature no matter what time of year. A large stone fireplace and deep leather armchairs add comfort and warmth in the main living area. Enjoy communal dining over organic local produce paired with fine wines, swapping stories, and adventure tales.
