                  The unfortunate drought has a major impact on the beauty of the location. when the lake fills up again it will be a fantastic destination.The food is excellent, the accommodation is good and the cost of refreshments very reasonable.A very peaceful getaway!

                  Nibble Lodge really impressed me with the great service and food menu. This was our third stay there and every time its been better and better. The staff are so friendly and always helpful and pleasant as if you were the most important customer in the resort. The food was great and the puddings were devine.I cannot recommend a better place than this to have a great stay. I can see why they are receiving all the awardsOh I almost  Lucky and the quad bike rides a real thrill through the trails to the fossils.Thanks Sarel and Melanie

                  We had a fantastic time at Nibela for our anniversary.  The honeymoon suite is beautiful and has a spectacular view.  A special thanks to Sarel who explained to us where to find the very special Rosy-throated  Longclaw and what a sighting it was!  Our only regret was that we didn't stay longer!
