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.
For your added security, this property is only managed in Australia and we never request payments be made to overseas bank accounts”
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 baby alpaca Quilo love to be handfed. The adopted kids! (goats) Pablo and Freda are curious and enjoy entertaining you with their goaty antics ;-)
