Amazing homestead. Highly recommend it
Initially, I didn't realize that I had the whole place to myself. It's a great homestead, centrally located. About one hour drive from the ferry in Penneshaw. Easy to find. Close to the wildlife preserve. No park or attraction was more than a one hour drive. There are no convenient markets so bring your own food. You're on an unpaved road for several kilometers to reach the homestead, so make sure your rental car allows for this. It was chilly a couple of nights, but they have a nice little fireplace and provide wood. Graeme came over and showed me how to easily light the fire. Piece of cake. I loved seeing the kangaroos hanging on on the grass in front of the place. One evening, four kangaroos came to the front looking for food. I wish i had more to give them because they mastered the "please feed me look". I would definitely stay there again.
