We booked Kings creek retreat for a hens weekend. We had an amazing weekend. The inside areas, games room and lounge are spacious and so well set out that it was very enjoyable and cosy. Carla and Spud were friendly and lovely to deal with. They cooked us pizzas in the Woodfire oven and organised a Indian headdress making craft that we all had a laugh with. The tipis were spacious and the beds comfortable. I'm already planning my next trip back.
