ABOUT BROOK COTTAGE
Brook Cottage is a 7-acre property located in a secluded valley adjoining Williewa Creek and the town common. The Town Common is a 650-hectare reserve complete with picnic grounds and bush walking tracks.
There is an abundance of wildlife in and around the property. King Parrots, Crimson Rosellas, Kangaroos, Possums and the wandering town common horses are frequent visitors. The two resident alpacas Llamahl and Nickelby love to be handfed.
Come and enjoy the unique beauty and tranquil pleasures Brook Cottage offers, there are plenty of attractions nearby but Brook Cottage is such a scenic and secluded retreat you'll find it hard to leave!
There?s crispness in the air and the firewood is stacked. Daffodils, snowdrops and the blossoms all come out and the green growth of spring is pure rejuvenation. Still some nights to enjoy the warmth of a log fire and the beauty and the freshness of the crisp air with a walk along the creek, surrounded by towering gums.
