Just to update you on this - the price quoted above was from our previous year's brochure. From 1st April 2017, the price has been: A: $25.00 C: $12.50 F: $62.50
Can you please provide us any ideas for volunteer opportunities for 2 - 8 hours? We don't mind odd jobs or messy jobs, we just like to help out at each place we travel. Please advise if you have any ideas or recommendations. Thanks.

Hi there. We have customer parking in two locations - at the front of the property next to the lake just past the coach parking area, and at the back of the property. Both areas are signposted and easy to find.
