‘The Block’ is a peaceful retreat for those who enjoy simple, rustic outback bush camping with creature comforts. It has tree top views, a fire pit, an outdoor bar, a shower set amongst the bush, a relaxing spa and a serene atmosphere. There's plenty for the kids too with a play kitchen, trampoline and sandpit and plenty of fun exploring the bush and the beach.

Downstairs is an open plan kitchen, bar and lounge area which opens onto the veranda. The kitchen has a gas cook top and microwave. All the other necessities like kettle, toasters, pots and pans are provided. On the veranda there is a barbeque and picnic table.

Upstairs you will find a timber deck either side of the dorm style bedroom which takes advantage of the tree top views and breezes, surrounded by shade cloth. The bedroom has two comfortable Queen beds with a privacy curtain between.

The bathroom amenities are simple, open air design and look out onto the native bush. ‘The Block' Donga is built at the back of a 23 acre native bush block. There is plenty of parking space for cars and boats. There is a stainless steel preparation table by a large campfire circle and campfire wood provided.

This style would suit those keen for a bush break. A simple, easy place to rest your head with the kids. Or peaceful, private respite in between big days on the water. Within 20km there are six boat ramps to access a range of fishing territory, and numerous beaches to play and lounge on with the family.

Access to the renowned Fog Bay fishery is 12ks by sealed road opening up a vast range of bluewater species and Barramundi in the nearby Finniss River. Mudcrabs and barra in upper tidal rivers. Access to the estuaries of Bynoe Harbour, for Barra, Salmon, Jewfish, Mudcrabs and a range of other species. Or the Freshwater Finnis, a picture-postcard Top End freshwater billabong packed with Barra and Black Bream, or the perfect place for a relaxing sunset cruise.

REVIEWS

"Shhh! The Block is local secret. Set on a huge bushland block, this rustic and charming house has an Aussie 'bush shack' feel. This unique house is the vision and passion of owners Tim and Linda.

There are lots quirky contemporary touches, a nice outdoor shower and they have tastefully and creatively used dongas (aka shipping containers) in the design of the no frills kiddy heaven here with lots of space for kids to explore, a trampoline, a large spa, a sandpit, as well as a little cubby and toys. There is a also campfire pit for roasting marshmallows at night under the stars.

It's a 2 storey pad with an open plan kitchen, and lounge area which opens onto the veranda. Upstairs there is a timber deck either side of the dorm style bedroom...totally comfy and toddler-proof." Growing up Troppo 2017.
