“We came to Gilberton to just chill out from a busy city life, but found so much more. For us, the break offered a unique mix of discovering an untouched part of Australia we never thought really existed; experiencing a few days of authentic hospitality and outback life; and recharging in the privacy of a superb retreat. Lyn’s guided walking tour was probably the highlight of a remarkable trip!”
