The original Wilderness Backpackers
Escape life’s hamster wheel at this laid-back backpackers with its bush lodge vibe. It’s near both the beach and the beauty of the national park where you can blaze a trail up to a waterfall to picnic, swim or zzzzz to the sound of nature-filled silence.
For your action fix, grab a nearby paraglide, canoe or horse ride, or retire to the lawns of Fairy Knowe for a spot of volleyball, badminton, bicycling or soccer.
