The bread, jam, butter, milk in the fridge when we arrived was most welcome. The beds were so comfortable, wonderful hot shower - everything was perfect. Hubby caught a trout and an added bonus for the girls was Pauline arranged for Farm manager Murray to take us on a farm tour on the 4WD trailer. The excitement and joy for these two little girls = priceless. Murray drove so carefully answering a myriad of questions from the girls. We will certainly return to this little piece of paradise.
