We had a wonderful stay at Hunter Homestead. The house is very well equipped and we had everything we needed. Lovely views, friendly horses and lots of kangaroos about. Good value for money and we'll definitely book again for a family gathering.

Clean facility - provisions included were very generour. Scenery from the veranda was amazing. The horses were friendly & the kangaroos were awesome. The whole weekend was made special by the peace and tranquility of the cabin. The setting was beautiful and we would definitely book this cabin again. Look forward to our next stay there.

Sad face IconDisliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Most disappointing, beds were dreadful, half a roll of toilet paper for 4 adults, BBQ was filthy nothing to clean it with,nothing to light outdoor fire with, toilet blocked wonderful with 4 adults, and to top it off the walls are paper thin can hear any and everything, even when someone is tinkling in the toilet, all in all most unpleasant.
