Early Settler and Aboriginal History: The setting in the paperbark forest goes back thousands of years. It was the perfect relaxing area in early life when there was no air-conditioning in the hot weather.
Paperbark forest walk and Historic Well: A 50 meter walk through the cleanest and freshest air one can experience. Visit one of the original settler’s water holes which provided the freshest of water.
Yabbi Netting: The bush freshwater crayfish was an alternative to the meat diet in the bush. This crayfish is very similar to the ordinary crayfish that is caught from the sea.
Canoeing:Supervised canoeing on Lake Serene. A 25acre springfed freshwater lake is so clear you may be able to see the fish swimming around. You really feel like you are away from it all when on this lake, a feeling like no other… enjoy the tranquility…
Net Fishing: The early settlers did not have the local shops to go to if they could not catch their own food. Collect a net and recycled container to try your hand at catching a fish of any size.
Please let the fish go afterwards as we care for the creatures in our environment.
