Testimonials about Our Place...
"Birdsong; Nature in Balance; Sweet Peace; Soul Food"
"Fresh air, bird calls, the music of the river and beauty the eye cannot believe"
"Our stay has been made so very special with nature providing us that gift we feel so fortunate to appreciate. Clear blue skies, Spring fresh mornings... the full moon took 180 seconds from first tip to full rounded moon to rise above the eastern range. Our most gracious thank-you to our host family"
"Hard to say what I enjoyed the most... The scenery, the bird song or the cool breeze. I loved the white throated honeyeaters the most. We enjoyed watching the squabbles between the noisy miners and a kookaburra. The kookaburra wasn’t too worried. Then some magpies joined in. We were dive bombed and strafed by wood swallows darting in and out of the veranda. We marvelled at the rosellas showing off across the front lawn. Loved the whip bird down near the river. The constant cacophony from the magpies, crows, lorikeets, parrots and what I think was a drongo were highlights. Loved the frogs and cicadas at night. Saw the best shooting star of my life last night. Felt my soul being restored"
"Just magic... Listen to that silence!! Peace, tranquillity, heaven, plus homely touches"
"Wonderful to hear the fall of rain on the roof and see clouds over the mountain. The perfect weekend"
"’Jurassic Park’ Primal rainforest. Many new flowers, plants and orchids. Giant land snail"
"Wonderful place! Thanks for the fresh herbs. Hope to be back"
"Wonderful flowers on Mt Earnest"
"The spirit of Barney calls; Mecca awaits; the true believers come; we who thought we had conquered her are time and time again conquered by her; she will remain. But to appreciate her you must stand atop of her. Innes, thank you for your friendly welcome to two wanderers of the road"
"The backdrop of the storm clouds over Mt Barney in the afternoon, were spectacular. Loved seeing babblers again; green pastures; great walks; fresh picked wildflowers and a lovely home, all made for a great weekend"

"We came, we climbed (SE ridge), we limped home – happy. A fabulous weekend. Thanks Innes and Tracey."
"Thanks Innes and Tim – without a guide, we wouldn’t have made it to the top!! Your encouragement was fabulous. Not being a climber – not even a serious walker; the climb was fantastic"
"My favourite activity was abseiling and I never would have done the 30metres without you Innes"
"Innes, thank you for an unforgettable day climbing/sliding West Peak. A feeling of euphoria reaching the top. Truly sensational. Thank you for keeping us safe, a beautiful lunch and adding a special element to our climb. A little sore today, but we most definitely will be back."

"Fantastic creek walk"
"After many years away, it was exhilarating to climb the flanks of this sublime peak once again, despite the sacrifice of 10 000 scratches demanded by the great mountain. And what better way to finish the day’s efforts by watching the sun set behind the mountains from the veranda. What great views, what a great place!"
"We are having an absolute ball here. Thank-you! P.S. we liked having a great adventure!!"
"Lovely place, lovely house, lovely view, lovely hosts. We’ll be back in spring for the wild flower walk and or the Barney climb"
"Thank you for your hospitality. A wonderful experience. We’ll never forget climbing the mountain. Thank you both."
"I liked climbing on the rocks, but most of all, was going to the Lower Portals. I liked the bush walk, the hills were a bit too big for me and my friend, but we made it and got to climb the rocks and put our feet in the water. Thank you for the holiday."
"Really enjoyed peasant’s ridge and hope to come back again"
"Delightful place, full of charm and simplicity. Joy of the stay made all the more so by a successful ascent of East Peak – a return visit of 18+ years ago"
"This is a fabulous spot; we had a great time and really enjoyed all the activities."
