What are our customers saying?
Gundiwindi has the most spectacular views of the surrounding mountains and bushland. It is special to be able to find a camp so close in proximity to Melbourne, where the students can connect with nature and have a true ‘bush’ experience. There is no need to leave the campgrounds for activities as there is so much to do on site! Tracey & Danny are such friendly and welcoming hosts and always make an effort to connect with our students and staff.
Eloise Winter, Year 3 Teacher, Cornish College
Gundiwindi Lodge is amazing! Tracey, Danny and the Camp staff are extremely supportive, accommodating and helpful. They make organising the camp a dream and are always on hand to help out. They form a positive and friendly rapport with the students and maintain a high standard of safety throughout the camp and its activities. The camp offers a wide range of engaging activities including archery, yabbying, flying fox and of course, the giant swing. We absolutely love coming to Gundiwindi Lodge for the Year 3 Camp.
Mat McRae, Year 3 Teacher, Camberwell Grammar School
The 3/4s from Waverley Meadows Primary School had an amazing time at Gundiwindi Lodge. Tracey and Danny were welcoming, organised and super friendly. The activities were great, with highlights being the campfire and night walk, giant swing and flying fox. The kids loved the freedom to interact with the animals, and we all enjoyed the stunning scenery. Can’t wait to go back in 2 years’ time!
