“Quirky comfortable shack in magnificent landscape with everything you need”

Dave and Dru are marvellous hosts, and will do everything they can to make your stay as complete as possible. They encourage and promote protection of the local flora/fauna, and early evening sees numerous marsupial visitors to the front verandah.

The little house is very comfortable and warm, and perfectly equipped with everything you need to cook hearty meals. Every element has been handmade by Dave - balustrades, tables, bench seats are carved from local timbers. The house comes with a great informative range of books to help you identify plant species etc. There are screens to protect against summer bugs, and the setting is glorious in snow (we have now been back several times).

Self-contained accommodation is rare in these parts, and closer to the park places with kitchens tend to be 1m from the neighbouring cabin, surrounded by begging possums stuffed with people's white bread. This place allows one to settle in and enjoy, with friends, the beautiful area
