We feel like we have been living in a parallel Universe… how about you? We have been beautifying our place and expanding our organic growing which has been a privilege. Lismore has been exceptionally magical and we know people really want to visit. The rapid reopening of tourism has been a surprise to us and we are cautious about moving too quickly. We have been booked up in August since before lockdown but we have plenty of availability for exclusive use bookings in September and October.

We are mindful we are an Independent hostel and want to keep our identity intact. However current advice and guidelines mean we have to adapt and take exclusive bookings of groups arriving at the same time in their respective ‘bubbles’ at the moment. We can accommodate campers and motorhomes  too so please message us if you want to visit. We look forward to welcoming you to our very special place. We intend to look after you very well.
