We did three tours which were all very enjoyable thanks to our guides Chizo and Rowdy I had a fishing trip with Rowdy who filleted out a Saratoga and had the chef prepare it four ways for dinner very memorable This is a wonderful location to relax and enjoy outback NT.
The property is abundant with wildlife, and I swear the place has at least 50 Agile Wallabies jumping around everywhere 24 hours a day. Other wildlife on the property, if your lucky to view, is Dingos, Crocodiles, Buffalo, birds a plenty including Jabiru, Magpie Geese, Gallahs and also some more deadly locals like the Brown snake and Taipan. They even have a baby saltwater croc that you can hold for that unique, fingerless, photo.
All the food was fresh and spectacular - we ate extremely well. Wine list is also expansive. There is a good sized pool and plenty of places to walk and relax. There are no TVs or newspapers, so you are really away from it all. Internet is only available in the main building. We really loved our stay here and felt very relaxed and looked after.
