Excellent resort with comfortable, well-equipped chalets surrounded by dense but navigable woodland. Picturesque dam with lots of bird life and the occasional kangaroo bouncing by (saw 2 this morning while having coffee out the back of our chalet overlooking the lake.)

We had a great experience at Eight Willows Retreat during our winter stay, the chalet had a really cosy quality to it and the location was amazing. My son loved feeding the chickens and walking around the property. My one feedback would be that the chalets could use an external doormat and some more pots and pans.

We stayed in 1a and may be the first people to have stayed in the room since it was renovated - the room sparkled. There's a beautiful outlook down over the dam and the rotunda from the outdoor patio. King size bed is huge and super comfortable, check in was a breeze and the room stocked with everything you need to enjoy your stay. Nespresso machine with some pods to get you started, bbq, microwave, full sized fridge and freezer (no oven however). Chromecast in the TV allows you to stream your own subscriptions. Room was quiet overnight and we slept like logs. The bushwalk trail is a nice too, plenty of roos to be seen and came across the sheep and chooks too on the way. Would definitely stay again and recommend this place to all.
