Brilliant Group Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Karinga Park Homestead was the perfect place for an extended family getaway. We were a group of 16 of various ages. The accommodation was extremely roomy and comfortable for our group with many varied bedrooms and living areas for meals and games. The accommodation was appreciated by all and we would highly recommend it for groups similar in size to ours.

  • 5 of 5

I celebrated my birthday there on the weekend, with family and friends. The weather was unbelievable for this time of year, and we set up tables outside, to enjoy the sunshine. The patio area is well protected from the wind, and made a perfect setting. Inside we had the fires on late in the afternoon both days and the house was lovely and warm. The bedrooms all had air conditioners or oil heaters and made the house really comfortable in the middle of winter. I would recommend this accomodation to anyone and would love to stay another time.
