Gilberton Outback Retreat Reviews

Gilberton Outback Retreat is truly one of the most amazing places in Australia. During our farm stay we spent some nights in the retreat. We were impressed by the romantic spirit of "The Hut" spread by an amazing view and a setup that is as lovely as luxurious. As it is very close to nature it's the best place for everyone who wants to experience the Australian Outback 24/7. We enjoyed exploring the traces of 40,000-years-old Aboriginal life, tried to find a treasure by fossicking and attended interesting cattle work. Thank you for the great time and your uncomparable hospitality.
