Last Check in is at 9.00 pm

When you arrive in the carpark, you will notice a shelter with an intercom in it. Push t talk and a 4WD
vehicle will come down to transport you and your luggage to Reception. On the other hand, if you just
have light things, nothing more than a light daypack, then the sign that says “Forest Walk” will lead you via a beautiful (but steep) rainforest walk to Reception. The distance is 600m and will take about 10 minutes but please don’t attempt in the dark or if you have heavy luggage or don’t have suitable footwear
