Our facilities include unique accommodation consisting of 16 separate weatherboard houses in a village-style setting, sleeping up to 270 people. Houses have either three or four bedrooms, providing bunk bed style accommodation, a lounge area, private bathroom and toilet facilities. Each house also has its own veranda – an important space for meeting points, change areas in wet conditions or simply a space to sit and enjoy the surrounding scenery. Guests have access to semi self-contained facilities in the houses they occupy during their stay, houses include kitchenettes with kettle, toaster, microwave and fridge (with the exception of cabins one and two which adjoin the self-catered kitchen). The self-cater kitchen has everything a small to medium sized booking (<100) requires to comfortably self-cater. We also have a large double BBQ area opposite cabins 15 & 16, as well as a BBQ on the back veranda of the self-cater kitchen.
FOR LARGER GROUP BOOKINGS OR EXCLUSIVE USE BOOKINGS ( Minimum pricing applies ): You can also hire our large dining hall capable of seating up to 250 people inside, and around 50 people outside on an extensive balcony overlooking the large oval, bush land and the Macalister River. The fully equipped commercial kitchen and scullery is ideal for groups above 40 people, which is available to hire allowing you to self cater in an easy, safe and hygienic way. Both the dining hall and commercial kitchen have been recently fitted out with heating and air-conditioning making the newly renovated space comfortable all year round.
Conference style facilities are available in the dining hall with a stage accessible by wheelchair and is complete with audiovisual equipment, and a large space that can be set up to suit your needs. A large self-contained room at the rear of the hall provides an ideal relaxation or meeting area for teachers, and/or program staff.
