Thanks to Ken & Judy and Wayne & Donna for a beautifully appointed, very comfortable cottage. The grounds were stunning, the walks suberb and, not sure if this was your doing, the weather perfect. Complementary wine and Easter eggs were a nice touch and delicious too. Watching kangaroos eating apples, platypus, wombats, a couple of friendly chooks and the cutest sheep ever climb the trees to eat the quinces made for a great weekend.

Brilliant views of upper Murrumbidgee and surrounds. Great place to unwind and escape to the country. We will be back.

Beautiful property on the river, the grounds are well kept and the cottage was clean and comfortable with everything we needed for a relaxing stay. The caretakers Wayne and Donna were lovely and very helpful. Loved our fresh eggs from the friendly chickens as well. The hardest part was having to leave.

The Outpost is even more beautiful than the already gorgeous photos on the website showed. The immaculate garden with a carpet of green lawn, a walled vegetable and berry garden, groves of mature shady trees and quiet bench seats placed in exactly the right position to capture views of the mighty Murrumbidgee River all came as a huge and welcome surprise. The most beautiful stretch of river to swim in. There was so much to do ( or not do!). It was immediate relaxation and comfort. The whole experience was greatly supported by Wayne and Donna - nothing was too much trouble and they were so kind and knowledgeable. Our teenage children loved the whole experience as did we. We have already booked our return visit. Thank you Ken and Judy for creating and sharing such a beautiful place.

This 800-acre property is a superb place to holiday. The cottage has everything that you need: clean, comfortable and well-appointed. You are surrounded by a beautiful garden that overlooks the river with lots of wildlife and birds. The property is superbly managed by Wayne and Donna, who took the time to show us around and point out places of interest to us. The walking trails on the property are clearly marked and carefully maintained, takiing you through magnificent country and along the river. Highly recommended.

The Outpost is superb. We were greeted with fresh eggs. The trails around the property were freshly mown and easy to follow - allowing us to appreciate the beauty of the property. Wayne and Donna were really good hosts, and Wayne went out of his way to show us the things we were interested in seeing, including fantastic views across to Mount Kosciusko.

Absolutely stunning location on a rocky part of the Murrumbidgee. Beautiful river pools, each with a platypus, birds galore, wombats, fabulous trees and bush, and lovely spring gardens around the house and cottage. Very friendly and helpful managers Donna and Wayne. Lovely fresh eggs and delicious bottle of wine. Comfortable cabin with everything necessary, and a terrific slow combustion fire. Very peaceful and private. Can't recommend this place enough for lovers of nature and the bush.
