Wild Spirit Backpackers Lodge

Accommodation and Facilities at Wild Spirit.

Wild Spirit Owl

Most of our private rooms and dorms are based in three double-storey garden cottages nestled under giant trees. Accommodation is simple, but cosy and comfortable, and far enough away from the main hub of the Tree House Deck to ensure a good night's sleep! Our wide range of accommodation options also make Wild Spirit a lovely venue for small intimate country weddings and workshops.
