I recently stayed there for a 5 days retreat. Over the last few years I have tried several of the kind worldwide yet I always return to Gwinganna. The friendliness of the staff (QLD style) and renewal of the food offering, the activities and the surroundings make this place unique. Obviously don't expect TV and minibar, this is a CNN,...
