A very unique place to stay. Very calming and peaceful with lots of places to sit outside to enjoy the scenery and wildlife. Comfortable beds, very clean amenities and great communication. Would definitely recommend a stay at this place.

A quiet out of the way place to stay, but still a few minutes from all amenities. Breakfast supplies were ample. Every thing was provided. A great experience. Would totally recommend.

For a unique accommodation experience you can’t go past the PS Federal, a lovely old paddle steamer right on the river mouth. Bird life abundant. Magnificent sunset and sunrise. Clean, cosy and well appointed with lots of extras. Thank you Beth for the little personal touches…

Great unique stay. Fantastic to watch the sun rise and sun set from the deck. Fantastic to have wine, eggs and bacon provided. All communication easy. Quite a way from anything so all about taking your own food and wine and hauling up in the unique location. Great stay

The PS Federal is the most charming spot. Quietly nestled within the reeds at the edge of the lake with nesting Black Swans and cruising Pelicans. We loved it!
