The historic European heritage homestead, Nil Desperandum, described by previous guests as 'camping under a tin roof' provides a beautiful and rustic wilderness experience. Nil Desperandum offers visitors a feeling of remoteness just a short drive away from the centre of the city. There is solar lighting, a long drop toilet, quality camp stretcher beds, cold running water into the kitchen via a rainwater tank, outside gas BBQ and a fire pit. This is a camping venue accessible by 4WD only.
