The place do not exist. It was shut 2 years ago. So after a 12 h drive and at 21.30 night we had to try to find another accommodation. Not happy at all take this listing of your sight. And I have for sure deleted your app from my phone to never be in this situation again.

We were disappointed that we were not able to get an evening meal the day we arrived? We were told after we arrived that they had not had enough notice to be able to do that! we were then advised to go somewhere else for the meal. After a long drive to get there we were tired and not very impressed. Otherwise things were satisfactory an dit was a lovely spot.

Fantastic spot great place. My only suggestion would be to consider getting rid of a lot of the plastic and old furniture lying around would make the place look so much better.

Beautiful place

Idyllic location with bushland scenery and river views. Staff very friendly and accomodating. Comfortable cabins, ours was just missing a toaster but everything else you could need is provided.

Peaceful with views

This was my second time here. Beautiful views of the Hawkesbury from my cabin. The cabin was well equiped with every detail thought of even aeroguard and bug spray (although there are no bugs in the room). The rooms were very clean and they come with A/C, toiletries, microwave, TV. You can turn your light on at night and not have bugs coming in from everywhere. Self cooking was easy in the Conference building with all supplies provided. The hosts Kee and Chris are exceptionally friendly and welcoming and they make you feel at home. Swimming pool was very refreshing. Places to see in the area - walks through maximum knee deep clean water in upper Colo Heights (Colo Merroo), Wheelbarrow Ridge Road mountain drive and Bob Turners Track were all amazing. Thank you again and I look forward to my next visit.
