          A little off the beaten track but definitely worth a visit. K Loved the swimming hole and the shower facilities. And there are platypusses-platypi or whatever the plural of platypus is. Just hope that the people around you can keep quiet and not disturb them....More

          We had one night at Wazza's place. We stayed in our car and I think that's the best way to stay here. The place is very "hand made", but everything worked when we were there. Everything is in one with nature, the toilet, the shower,...More
