Short stay at the Signal Box

  • 5 of 5

A thoroughly enjoyable stay in this beautifully double storied unit looking out toward the Great Dividing Range. Our plan to travel on the Puffing Billy was made all the more worthwhile as we witnessed our transport whistle past the end of the driveway to the property.
