A total of 28 members travelled to this little Bush Retreat for lunch. We met in Bowen Big Mango rest stop for morning tea before proceeding to Bogie River - no one knew what to expect but we were not disappointed. A lovely friendly atmosphere and the lunch served was excellent - we opted for an alternate drop meal to make it easier on both the catering and ourselves. No one was disappointed. From all reports we will be back. Thanks for making our visit so enjoyable.

I have stayed with Terri and John a number of times and have found the accommodation, food and staff to be fantastic. Whilst this is not a lush hotel - it is very comfortable, clean and ever so homely. Terry is also a magnificent cook, so be prepared to walk away a few grams heavier than on arrival! Thank you again Terry and John for another wonderful stay :-D

Thank you so much to Terri and John for all your help hosting our workshop. You went over and above to help us, providing "walls" for posters and notes. The food was fabulous and plentiful. The grounds are lovely. The house is gorgeous. I will definitely try to come back again sometime.

Bush Bunks at Bogie River has recently changed hands. The new owners have great customer service, attention to detail, keep the property clean and tidy, and are pleasant people to talk to! We had a beautiful lunch, generous and well priced. We enjoyed drinks at the bar a short distance from the Australia shaped pool. We also enjoyed a ride on the flying fox and the giant swing. There is a pool table, dart board and table tennis near the bar area. This place is perfect for kids and adults alike. I will definitely be returning for another swim!

My work colleagues and I have just had our Christmas Party at the Bush House and it was agreed by all that it was fabulous. From the moment we arrived our hosts Terry, John and Adrian and also the lovely Sarah couldn't have done more to make our visit memorable. There were 10 of us for an overnight stay, which we had in the main house. Lovely comfortable, clean rooms, exquisite antique furniture and bric-a-brac, rustic bar, pool, games area that we used frequently. Nibbles , a 3 course dinner and cooked breakfast to die for. What more could anyone want. In fact we all enjoyed it so much that we have already booked for next year. Keep up the good work guys and thank you for a wonderful weekend. Lynda
