The following report was on 'Trip Advisor' on May 4th 2012.
'We stayed at the 'Billabong Cabin" for three nights mid-week , two couples and absolutely fell in love with the cabin and our hosts (Kangaroos and Kookaburras). We can highly recommend this cabin as the best view and attention to everything! The setting that is at the edge of the mountain is breathtaking and to sit and eat your meal there is awesome!'

We so enjoyed being one with Nature 'Heaven right here on earth.' Stayed for 3 days and we left feeling recharged and peaecful-it feels like we have been here 3 months! We will miss our friends the kangaroos and parrots, but we will be back.

What a beautiful haven to come and spend some wonderful quality time with some special friends. We laughed , we drank, we ate and we relaxed. Recharging the batteries, tranquillity is magnificent. Indeed this is a very special place.
Staying at Billabong has been a wonderful experience for all of us but particularly for my 2 nieces on vacation form the U.K. It is a memory we will treasure and keep forever. We have thoroughly enjoyed the lodge and have eaten, drunk, and slept very well while keeping an eye on the wildlife day and night. We love the design and floor plan of the house and the panoramic views of the valley. We found it extremely comfortable and well equipped. We loved the kangaroo D.V.D.
The world was supposed to end on Dec. 21, 2012 during our stay at Billabong however we awoke to a incredible cloud cover where nothing was in view and we weren't sure if we were in heaven or not. As it turned out, we were all safe but our view of life had changed forever for we had experienced a little taste of heaven right here on earth at this heavenly lodge which we will always treasure.
This is one of the most beautiful places that any one of us have ever seen. Really close to a paradise! The lodge was just perfect-very well equipped and with a comfortable homey feel. The kangaroos kept us will entertained all day. We will miss their company and will cherish memories form here forever. Thank you so much.
