    • We went to the cottage for my daughters 13th surprise birthday party - she was very surprised. All the girls had a great time and they didnt have to worry about noise they made because we were out in the bush and no one could hear them. We also walked to the lookout and the girls all took photos. It was great being out in nature, we saw 3 kangaroos and a kookaburra. It was like being on holiday

    • We took note of previous reviews and took two small heaters with us but didn't really need them. Facilities were basic but all that we needed for a 5 night stay. It was a great place to hide from the city yet close enough to go into Adelaide when w
