Situated 2kms off Dukes Highway between Bordertown & Keith the facilities here are excellent for conference, group meetings or family reunion etc in a clean quiet enviroment. Kitchen facilities and catering fees are very competitive. Powered sites for caravans or camping available . Highly recomended.
