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 We had the most amazing holiday! Everything at the Bower Retreat was perfect - the house was a dream farm cottage with a cozy log fire and beautiful comfortable bedrooms, there was so much to do and entertain the kids just on the property like bikes, table tennis, badminton, walks around the farm, enjoying the farm animals, playing with the dogs. Marion was so incredibly lovely and really took time to show us and the kids around the farm. My husband is an artist and collected all the ginnea and peacock feathers from the ground and made an incredible artwork out of them so it was perfect for him too! Thank you Marion we would definitely come back for another winter getaway!!
