Sewerage and waste water is disposed of through a septic tank system and it is important that no plastic or nappies are flushed.

No land line is available from this house, but Telecom cell phone signals are obtainable from parts of the property.

Rubbish should be placed at the gate in a secured bag for collection early Monday morning. Bags require a rubbish collection sticker which are available from the camping ground store.
