LATITUDE 33 is a classic river weekender that simply demands relaxation from it's guests. What makes this place especially unique is floor to ceiling folding glass doors that span the complete length of the front facade, bringing the spectacular views & light right in to the lounge & bedrooms . The rear deck offers the perfect cool space when the heat is just too much!!!. Alternatively a hammock hangs on a private lower deck - yet another perfect spot to relax & take in the surrounds. The lounge & main bedroom both open onto the front verandah. Below the main level is a spacious day room that is reached via an external path, with floor to ceiling louvres capturing the afternoon breezes & beautiful river views .
The ridge opposite LATITUDE 33 is part of Marra Marra National Park & is framed by spectacular river views in each direction. The shared jetty has a pontoon suited to those with own boat or those wishing to hire a boat.
