Lower Lodge

The Lower Lodge was originally the main accommodation building used by contractors when shearing the sheep. Because of the remoteness of the station this building needed to be put in place to accomodate  the large shearing gangs that used to stay overnight here.

A perfect base to access so many areas whether it be to relax, walk, tramp, ski, fish or boating on Lake Coleridge. Take a 30 minute stroll to the lake.
