We found this property to be a little further out than we had thought, but having said that it was private and very relaxing with no noise from other patrons or from passing traffic. The native wildlife was amazing and welcomed us with their presents each day which it had the feel of our own private sanctuary. The rooms are very comfortable and given that our stay was whilst there was massive bushfires surrounding the area we felt safe and thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

A lovely, quiet getaway. No phone signal so completely relaxing. An ideal way to spend some time off

100% recommend

The Seabird Lodge was perfect for our stay, very comfortable and not as basic as I thought. The bed is extremely comfortable, the shower is so good, it has made me want to update my bathroom at home, the kitchen is well stocked with most equipment you would likely need, the views of the bush are stunning. Feeding the friendly kangaroos is a highlight, they have 2 man canoes, 1 man kayak and stand up paddle board which is a lot of fun on the beautiful lake, they have bikes which admittedly didn't look the best but am sure would be ok for a short ride (will do that next time), the pool is nice and after a half hour in the amazing mineral spa, I felt like I had a massage. The staff were very friendly and helpful. This will now be a regular holiday spot. Cant recommend highly enough.

Great location to Get Away!

We had a great stay. There bicycles, but not in best condition. I didn't get to try out the spa or pool. The room also had a good kitchen in which we cooked a couple of meals. Oh, and a gas log fire. Each room was provided seeds to feed the birds and 'Roo's. it's not the cheapest place, but well worth it.
