I stayed at the Jugglers Rest about 10 years ago, so it may well have changed in that time, but it is still in my mind as about the best place I've ever stayed. Picton is a nice enough town, but this place was outstanding... No where else have I ever had the owner teach me to eat fire as another guest tried to teach me to do fire spinning... I had so much fun, and would love to go back. I don't suppose it could ever be as much fun as it was back then, but I live in hope... (also, I've put February 2011 as the date, but only because that's as far back as it goes... Should be March/April 2002....!)
