Come stay up the hill!! It's great to live in a true alpine
environment even if only for a small part of the year. Don't
worry though as you're not too far out of touch - the wireless internet connectivity means you can still take that
laptop (if you really feel that you must). Don't bother
packing the cell phone though there is no reception, your
phone will just be excess baggage...
it is not enough to be living in the midst of the Southern
Alps with mountains surrounding you there's also the very
comfortable lodges where you can stay overnight for the
week, weekend, a couple of days or for the month if you've
The accommodation is a variety of modern bunkrooms
sleeping from 4 to 10 people. Yes you do need to bring your
own sleeping bag and towel but that's all since you can get
dinner, bed and breakfast for one great price.
Oh and did we mention that Temple Basin has a liquor license
and fully stocked canteen.
