Fantastic spot in Heart of the rainforest
Basic accommodation in a superb setting. If you don’t come expecting luxury and want a real slice of living amid the rainforest then you’ll love it. Super Friendly welcome. Good quality, excellent value meals if you decide not to cook in the well set-up communal kitchen . The night walk is well worth it

The setting is beautiful but the family who are the current caretakers made the experience outstanding. They are wonderful people, great cooks, and helpful hosts in every way. They made this the highlight of our Australia trip.
