Once upon a time, when the Girl Guides first had this kitchen put in, it had no doors and serviced both campers and possums! It has seen a few upgrades since then with roller doors and the hope that some beautiful bi-folds will be fitted one day in the future. We still have the eclectic collection of plates, cups and cutlery from the Girlguiding era though. Always fun choosing the prettiest plate for your kai! The kitchen is for all to use and comes with hobs, oven, fridge, large plastic containers with lids for food storage. BBQs, pizza oven and fire pit for marshmallow toasting also freely available. We also have a medium sized spit (25kg) just bring your own coal. Please ask for availability when booking.
Dining/Hang Out Area
We believe the best memories are created from the new friends you make and the stories you exchange. Our open dining room has a large table for shared meals and we encourage story telling around it! Picnic benches and picnic mats are also available for use and we have several trestle tables available for larger groups. There are several sofas on the covered deck for lounging after a hard day exploring and for true relaxation hammock chairs are available from reception. Just come and ask for one and go find a branch to hang it from.
Who doesn’t love a good fire? Bring along your guitar and teach us some songs. Hunt for a stick (the more pointy bits the better) to toast some marshmallows (always in stock in the shop), share some of your adventures and relax. Please read the safety guidelines and be aware of your children at all times!
Follow the path by the car park and you will come to the amazing swinging bridge. This is the only way to cross the river and keep your feet dry! The bridge was built by the army as a training exercise for the Girl Guides and still stands strong. It gives access to 200 acres of forest intersected by a meandering, stony bottom, shallow river. Take your togs and enjoy one of the many swimming holes, spend some time playing with the cheeky fantails that often like to follow you around, explore all the nooks and crannies the bush has to offer, and don’t forget to take lots of photos to share on our Facebook page for all to see! There are several great walking tracks for the more energetic (the boundary walk is particularly beautiful first thing in the morning before breakfast) or just follow the track along the river for an easier walk. Shoes are highly recommended int eh bush. Apart from the swinging bridge, all other crossings are through the shallow river. You will get wet! Enjoy!
