Our second trip to this marvellous location. We stayed for another 2 weeks, mainly fishing, with Diane and Barry. I run out of superlatives when describing our stay here. It was my 70th Birthday when we were there and Diane put on a great party for myself and my wife, with other guests joining in. Thanks a million Di. Meanwhile fishing with Barry as a guide is a wonderful experience. His local knowledge helped catch fish where we wouldn't be able to. The homestead is set in beautiful surroundings and Diane and Barry made us feel we were part of the family. Breakfast is a smorgasbord of cereals, muesli and fresh fruit as well as a cooked brekky if you wish, followed by as much toast and local spreads as you can eat. My wading boots are still there for our next trip since it is too much of a hassle bringing them back to Oz. Diane and Barry are two of the loveliest people we have ever met and nothing is too much of a problem for them. Looking forward to our next trip. We cannot recommend this place highly enough. Stuart & Vicki.
