Romantic Getaway Victoria

“From high on the hill watch the clouds roll over the Gippsland Lakes

Photograph stunning sunsets and gaze into starry skies

 Wake to the raucous laughter of Kookaburras

Stand in awe before the views over the hinterland below

Where the meandering Nicholson River threads its way to the Lakes.
