If you are looking for a little more detail...

The Hall

  • Four long wooden tables built from timber milled on the property with accompanying chairs
  • Seating for approximately 50
  • Tall standing gas heaters
  • A screen to use for slide shows (no projector at this minute)
  • Internet is available on request for workshops and training days. It is limited to half an hour each evening for social groups though – conversation is much more important than Facebook!

The Bathrooms

  • Six individual bathrooms made from corrugated iron and timber milled on the property, they each have their own quirkiness.
  • Each bathroom has a shower with endless hot water, a sink and flushing toilet – remember this is civilized camping!
  • A couple of resident green frogs
  • Hand towels and locally produced goat’s milk soap – Ellie’s Range

The Fire Pits

  • The second fire pit is undercover and designed as the camp oven kitchen. Three camp ovens of varying sizes are available as well as an over the coals BBQ plate.
  • A gas BBQ is also found here nestled under the quinine trees surrounded by outdoor sandstone tables.
