The Bower Retreat is a very comfortable fully self contained four bedroom cottage which sleeps eight. Cottage backs onto rain forest creek with view of Balck Bulga Range to the front.

Bower Retreat is just great for couples , families or groups who want to get away and enjoy some country life in a very beautiful and quiet spot.

Cottage stands alone by its self on property so there so guests have their privacy.

It is set on a 56 acre property which guests are free to explore. There are marked walking tracks along the creek and up and over the timbered hill.

Plenty of open and flat area as well for children to play and ride bikes.

The cottage now has an enclosed area at front suitable for containing small children making supervision of them a much easier task, whilst they enjoy the outdoors.

This fenced area is also suitable for containing small to medium sized dogs. Bower Retreat is a pet friendly establishment.

Bush walking, birdwatching (up to 90 species recorded on property, see for bird list), swimming in pool, table tennis, horse riding nearby, bike riding.

There are friendly cows to pat who love a hand out of bread and poultry to feed and eggs to collect.

Walk the marked walking track along the rainforest creek, marvel at the ferns and mosses, then climb the timbered hill to a view of the property.

Horse riding nearby is with Lisa at Topline. Lisa caters for beginners as well as more experienced riders.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thanks for an amazing place to stay. This was perfect for kids (and adults) to visit. There was heaps to do and our kids had a ball feeding the animals and tearing around the house on the bikes. Loved having the ping pong table and badmington set up. I have never seen my kids have so much fun exploring their surroundings. We appreciated the time you took with us and we felt looked after, balanced with privacy. This was great family value and we are all looking forward to coming back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We felt relaxed and pampered - well equiped house and Marion a kind & gracious host. Cosy and warm with plenty of wood. The kids loved exploring and roasting marshmallows over the fire. Dogs had a wonderful time - with a yard of their own. The mountains and bush surrounds are magnificent. Like big Arnie - we'll be baaark!
