Although it feels like wilderness, the luxe amenities block has hot water showers, flushing toilets and filtered river water that's suitable for drinking and cooking; bring your mountain bikes for the onsite mountain bike park, there's 3.5kms of tracks and trails, berms and log bridges; and of course the Barrinton River is great for swimming, paddling, fishing or just floating around on a lilo or rubber ring. Even the sound of the river will help wash away the stress of your busy year.
