A truly luxurious experience in the Australian Outback. Only five rooms ensured our every need was catered for by hosts, Glen and Nadine. Caught a 80-cm barramundi on the lake, enjoyed long walks and relaxing in the horizon pool. The helicopter flight in was a real highlight; being able to appreciate this harsh but beautiful land. We spotted cattle, brumbies, fresh water crocodiles and soaring eagles.”TripAdvisor
Never had a stay with that much privacy, luxury and comfort. Good quality of food and a lot to do. Situated at a lake, there is a lot of birdlife an you can swim and canoeing as much as you like. There are good walks, and you can vist Chillagoe. The best I ever had? Possible yes, at least in the top five! I forgot to mentor the super sundowner.”TripAdvisor
From the moment we arrived there was a feeling of peace and calm. The scenery was only surpassed by the service. The hosts Glen and Nadine made us feel that nothing was too much trouble and surprised us with sunset drinks and delicious food at every meal. The fishing and wildlife were abundant. I wish we were able to stay longer and will be recommending Cystalbrook to my friends.”TripAdvisor
