Cannot fault anything here. It’s an amazing spot and we were lucky enough to have chalet three which looks over the water. The spot is beautiful and the service was impeccable. Incredibly happy with our stay. It’s located close to all the regular fun spots (especially kid friendly ones) down south. Great and easy walking trail to take the kids on for kangaroo spotting and photos.

Wifi included The landscaping is breath taking as it’s situated in natural bush land and over looking the river. Just peaceful and relaxing atmosphere

We recently had our wedding at Eight Willows Retreat and it was an absolute dream, from the beginning right up until the end. We cannot fault anything about our experience, massive thankyou to Ari for bringing my vision to life, Yvette for managing the guest and our accommodation so effortlessly and the rest of the amazing team who made the day possible. Eight Willows are so familiar with local vendors which makes planning super easy on all ends, (definitely recommend booking local vendors). The location is so beautiful, there was no need to travel for photos as there are so many gorgeous photo opportunities on the property. The function centre is perfect with a stunning view. Having most of our guests stay on site was so convenient and we were able to extend our celebrations for more than just one day (so many guests loved this option too, especially the ones with children). If you’re feeling anxious or stressed about your wedding, then be assured that the team have you covered, I was so relaxed and so proud to say that the day ran so smoothly, we cannot Thankyou enough, so so grateful for you guys.
