The historic Penitentiary originally housed convicts from 1830. Today it provides basic bunkhouse–style accommodation. Each room has bunk beds with covered mattresses, a wood fired stove for heating, a table and seats, and a storage area. There’s no power, running water or lighting in the rooms.

The rooms are spotlessly clean and regardless of the weather, extremely warm and cosy. Plenty of wood is available to keep your wood fired stove going all day if you want. The bunk beds are also very comfortable, and it is our aim to limit rooms to two participants so everyone feels comfortable. However if you’re traveling with a group of friends and want to stay together, we can easily accommodate you!

Toilets, rainwater tanks, wash up area, and a communal mess hall (with lighting, power and a kitchen including gas cookers and sinks) are adjacent to the penitentiary.

Behind the beach at the bottom of the campground is a shelter with gas BBQs, gas cook rings and a sink. $1 coin-operated showers are situated in the toilet block behind the beach.
