Enjoy self-contained accommodation, set in 2 acres of beautiful bush surroundings. Nestled just 400m from the spectacular Glenelg River and only 500m from Simson's Landing, Casuarina Cabins is the perfect place to stay for bush walkers, birdwatchers and fisherman, or come to just sit back, relax and unwind in the quiet and tranquil surroundings. An ideal getaway for bird watching, fishing, bush walking, water skiing or as a stop over for the Great Ocean Road. Other facilities include gas BBQ, laundry, and linen hire is available. In the front garden of the Casuarina Cabins is part of the capstan (turn-table) which, powered by horses, used to draw a punt across the river. The punt was built and operated by Henry Kellet in 1848 and was then, the only way of getting across the river..
Located a couple of Kms from the South Australian border on the mouth of the Glenelg River. A township of approx 350 popular for holiday makers and fishing.
"Nelson is a quaint fishing town on the Glenelg River at the river's entrance to the southern ocean, and well liked by fishermen who try their luck up along the upper reaches of the river, or down in the lagoon by the entrance. A well supplied general store provides most of the needs of the locals day to day, and of course Portland and Mount Gambier cities are not far away. The sheltered boat ramps in the river adjacent to the local pub, make for an idyllic fishing trip destination." - Gary Pope
