    • I really enjoyed meeting Lyn and her family and hearing all about their history. Peter and Olive have many interesting stories to tell. There is a very personal and relaxed atmosphere on the farm and you are really made to feel at home. We went out for a two-hour ride, were driven around the farm in a 4WD and shown many interesting details. The animals and pets were lovely too. Full marks!

    • One of My favourite hostels so far. Very kindly people who own the place. You don't need to go to zoo to see kangaroo only go to myella. This is what australia is known for.
