Special Features
Lovely quiet rural setting with horse paddock in front and chickens/pigs paddock at back. Abundance of native bush.
The rest home started out as a large house which over the years has been extended to the current 23 beds. With the relatively small number of beds, our rest home has a very homely feel about it.
