The Wilderness Cabin offers peace and comfort amid rolling hills. This secluded cabin offers magnificent views of the Horseshoe Range. It is the ideal spot for anyone wishing to get away from it all! It is set in a very remote and rugged part of the Horseshoe Range, yet is easily accessible.
The Cabin is well furnished, with all cooking equipment available in the kitchen. The log fire is very efficient and the solar powered lighting excellent. Outside, guests can enjoy a campfire or BBQ with great views of the valley.
As it overlooks a dam, you can sit inside and watch the wildlife come to the water at sunset. There are always plenty of kangaroos and often emus. Bird-watchers love it and there have been reported sightings of rare species while staying there. A list of birds is also available inside the cabin.
There are many activities to enjoy in the Horseshoe and surrounding areas. There is a popular 2 hour walk on the property which follows the creek past a waterfall and then follows a track up to Mount Stokes - the highest point of the Horseshoe Range. Another highlight is the Horseshoe Rim 4WD Adventure Track which loops its way around the surrounding hills. As privacy is paramount at the Cabin, the track has been designed to preserve this. Your hosts, Ben and Susan Carn live 40km away on another property and generally leave the visitors alone. However, they are available on request if need be!
At shearing time in August/September, visitors are invited to go around the range to the big shearing shed and watch. Many consider this to be a highlight.
There are enough beds for 8, thus making it ideal for families. However, it is also very popular with couples who really want to be alone!
