  • It's basically a botanic garden of weeds. Not what I would think is appropriate for a National Park. If you want to see every weed that exists in the Mt Lofty Ranges then this is the spot for you...

  • A very cool little place to stay. We did the eco tent which was fantastic. it has everything you need. Bed was really comfy. It made for a great little refresher escape.
  • Great long weekend spent here. Clean amenities. Friendly owners. Spotless barbies. Plenty of great bushwalks. Lots of wildlife and yet so very near civilisation. Highly recommend.
