"Yaraandoo" means Southern Cross, or White Gum, both of which can be seen from the verandah.
Rolf Svensen built Yaraandoo with a mate in 1995. "Evan was the builder; I was the labourer!" It seems to be an ongoing project and there's always something to fix, add or improve upon. I love reading the comments in the visitors book when I see that people have had a great time and want to come back. This gives me great pleasure and I hope to see you at Yaraandoo. Best wishes Rolf.
