    Short version: If it were half the price you wouldn't complain. Same for both the accomodation and the food. Complete verdict: This place could be awesome, but it isn't. To be fair it's not completely terrible either, but given the price point you'll expect so...More

    Ideally located at the opposite end of the island from the Sealink Ferry terminal, adjacent to the Flinders National Park, this Lodge is remote and gives one a good sense of being surrounded by nature. Considering this, the accomodation itself is very comfortable, spacious rooms...More
