“Iscolated gem”
Reviewed 28 July 2014

I accidentally came across this place with a web search when looking for somewhere to stay to break up the drive from Victoria to SA. So glad I did! Was the perfect place to relax for a couple of days with young kids, just roaming as far as the eye could see and sitting by the fire with no TV or computers (and barely any phone reception). The facilities are brilliant with quality, abundant kitchen equipment, lovely linen on the beds and even an outdoor fire pit with a view. We were there in the middle of winter, so the only negative was that the pine lodge is not sealed and we were only warm when sitting directly in front of the fire, and had to sleep in the beds inside sleeping bags, with beanies on - but that was sort of part of the adventure. The place could be considered quite luxurious with a bit of work to seal it from the elements. We had the place to ourselves, except for the welcoming property owners, but we are looking forward to returning with a group which would be superb in summer.

We stayed in this beautiful lodge, in the middle of the Wyperfield National Park for a couple of nights in May/June. It is fitted out as a rustic lodge made from pine logs and so there are tiny gaps in the walls but as it is in the middle of the bush, that is not a problem. The living areas, kitchen and outside barbeque areas are more than adequately equipped and the log fires were a real joy as was the almost antique furniture. The communal toilets require a trip along the open verandah so take a pair of slippers for night time. The beds were comfortable and the rooms nicely furnished with period pieces. Susan and Adrian are wonderful hosts who will make your stay relaxing and enjoyable. This would be a great place for large family groups who enjoy the bush.

A friend and I wondered into this cosy establishment due to problems with our camping facilities. Without any notice, and a christmas lunch for 25 people to prepare for the following day, Susan let us stay in a cabin for the night for whatever money we had on us (which was about one-sixth of the normal price).
The lodge was not only clean and well-maintained, it was also beautifully cosy and in a perfect location for the longest sunset I have ever witnessed in my life.
During our short stay we felt welcomed yet was still given privacy. I travel a lot and would definitely recommend this place to anyone that is visiting the area.

Room Tip: Any room is perfectly facing the beautiful sunset

This Pines Plains lodge is situated right in the middle of the northern section of Wyperfeld National Park. The lodge itself is a unique building which is constructed of native pine, with the quirky rustic feature of being able to see through the walls in some places, where there were small gaps between the logs. In every other way the lodge is lavishly decorated and very comfortable. The lodge is owned by Susan O'Sullivan and Adrian Meehan. The O'Sullivan family have owned the 300 acre Pines Plains since the 1920's at which time they also leased part of the area which is now Wyperfeld to breed horses. The lodge itself was built in the early 1990's.
During our stay we were provided with freshly baked bread and Susan set up candles and mosquito coils for us in the evening so that we could eat our dinner outside. The lodge has a fully equipped kitchen so that you can prepare your own meals. Adrian took us on a tour around Wyperfeld Park and explained to us the history of the park and showed us some Aboriginal canoe trees. Adrian also has an observatory where he is happy to show guests the night sky if it is clear enough to do so. All of these extras and more came without any extra cost to us. We came to Pines Plains for the accommodation but got an adventure instead.
The only small downside is that the bathrooms are not attached to the bedrooms, however this didn't bother me as the weather was mild so it is pleasant to wander around the veranda to the bathroom when needed.
