  • Description

    Description

    Family run wildlife shelter specialising in wombats. Small vegetable patch and farmyard animals. 18acres of mainly natural bush abundant with wildlife and a big reserve for leisurely walks. A huge dam with yabbies and deep for a cool swim at the end of the day. King parrots that feed out of your hand with the occasional echidna wandering through and the sound of deer honking in the bush. Frogs to go to sleep by from our fully converted comfortable bus. Clear star lit sky to watch the falling stars go by while you can sit by the fire pit by the bus.
