At the lodge, we offer accommodation in the cabins or at our private campground. To save yourself extra weight in your back-pack, you can book your meals and drinks with us too, just read on.
You can chose between staying in the lodge cabins or at our private riverfront campground. We are sorry, but pets are not allowed at the lodge due to abundance of native wildlife. We are here for the walkers who need a good night rest, so no parties are allowed and quiet time is from 10pm.
The lodge provides inexpensive and comfortable accommodation for up to 28 people, comprising of two cabins. One sleeps 12 people and the other 16 people.
The cabins are fully equipped with sturdy wooden bunk beds, warm woollen bedding (incl. bed sheets) and are heated by slow combustion fires for a comfortable night’s sleep.
- Adults: $45 pp / night
- Kids (up to 18 years) / Students / Pensioners: $35 pp / night
You can book the smaller cabin (12 beds) for $400 / night and the bigger cabin (16 beds) for $500 / night - please contact us.
You can pitch a tent at our private campground located on the Coxs River, 150 metres from the lodge. It is a size of roughly two tennis courts and has a large campfire with a sitting area and wood supplied from the lodge. This option allows you to use the lodge facilities, such as kitchen and bathroom.
Please note there is no car access to the campground and you will have to carry your camping gear from the lodge where you park your car.
The numerous deep and shallow river holes are safe and pleasant for a dip after a long walk.
- $25 pp/night
