One of the great things about Dalguise beat is that people come for the fishing, then realise there’s so much more to investigate.  It’s why we are ideally set up for family groups, corporate bookings, and the entertainment of bored small people with short attention spans.

Most commented on in the stationary wildlife category is our Monkey Puzzle Tree.   Native to the Andes, and so long-lived it’s referred to as a living fossil, it received its name in the 1850’s when a rare specimen of the age provoked the comment “It would puzzle a monkey to climb that!”.

We’re not sure about testing that hypothesis, but we’re grateful for the interesting-looking shade in the summer!
