"We did not want to leave this great Paringa Cottage.  This has to be the best Airbnb that we have ever stayed in.  The beds were so comfortable, shower was more than adequate with tremendous water pressure. Last but not least, was the surprise homemade goodies of muffins, jams and fudges.  We were thouroughly spoilt by Brenda and Ben. Such peaceful and private spot to stay, but handy to the Fox Glacier. 
While you are here...

Relax & dine

Bring someone special, the family or just yourself.  Relax, and enjoy the scenery without going off the" beaten track".  Plenty of scenic stops along the highway or simply enjoy the road trip.  Dine at the Salmon Farm Cafe, spend an evening at restaurant at the glaciers, take a scenic flight, jetboat tour

Walking & Exploring

From a stroll along the beach at Bruce Bay, to the short walks at Ships Creek & Munroe Beach right through to several nights on the historic cattle track.  Our coastline and bush is home to an abundance of birdlife including rare Fiordland Crested Penguins. Take your camera!
