Shillings & Pence Breathtaking location with the perfect mix of adventure and comfort. The care, effort and vision of the owners is truly remarkable. We had an unbelievable weekend and would highly recommend the experience to anyone wanting a relaxing, beautiful escape. Shillings & Pence will forever be one of our greatest memories, it was where I was proposed to - by the dam. Thank you for giving us a beautiful place to celebrate each other in Love & Life.
