We had a room with double bed and bunks and ensuite. It was clean and served its purpose. the kids were fascinated by the cane toads hopping around outside at night! We ate at the roadhouse and the schnitzels were good

Hi there, I have emailed the owner for you. There is nowhere right there to hire one but he has one and may have some suggestion. I will get back to you when he has replied.
