Amazing family stay!
We stayed in a 2 bedroom villa treehouse for 2 nights. The treehouse was amazingly clean and very well equipped. We loved the breakfast hamper that was provided. We made sure to bring enough food and drinks to cover our stay for lunch and dinner as we were quite a long way from restaurants. David was very helpful and full of knowledge about places to visit. We were very secluded and private even though there were a number of treehouses on the property. It was lovely to wake to the sounds of birds in the mornings. Even though there was no air conditioning the treehouse was cool and comfortable on very hot days, we all slept very well.

Really beautiful views. Very private and secluded. We also enjoyed feeding the birds and musky-rat kangaroos at 8:30am. We stuck around a little longer and had a visit by a juvenile cassowary.

Great place to stay for holidays. In the cabin we stayed the bush outside the balcony was so wildly overgrown that was hard to appreciate everything else. There was deadbush on top of overgrown weed. Everything else was exceptional
