This property was a logging outpost for Banshaw Station many years ago and old bottles and campsites can still be stumbled across. The property now runs sheep and goats (hence why goats are limited as they are part of their enterprise).
When the family comes along with hunters, they can relax by the waterhole, picnic, read, fish at the nearby river, meet the poddy calves, goats and lambs, or use the surroundings as inspiration for art or photography. They can bushwalk and enjoy the seclusion. Beautiful Stanthorpe is 90mins away for a bit of culture.
