Koorakai is an Aboriginal word meaning "gum tree."

Come and relax in this spacious three bedroom house brimming with unique character overlooking a beautiful bushland valley.

The interior has a rustic elegance made possible by using as many materials from our local natural environment as possible. Koorakai house has been sustainably crafted from basalt rocks removed from the hill into which it is built and from hundred year old recycled sand stock bricks. Its adobe floors are made from local granite soil; mosaics are designed from themes inspired by the Abercrombie river which borders the property; and the slate used in the bathroom is hand-hewn from the local quarry.

The main living area is a generous space, perfect for a family group of up to ten people. The open plan design has a large open fireplace made from local basalt stone as its central focal point, and is the perfect way to bring people together. The king-sized master bedroom is large and spacious, with room enough for a sofa and a baby cot, and direct access to the verandah and spectacular views of the valley and bush beyond.

The second bedroom has a queen-sized bed, while the third bedroom has bunk beds that can sleep four kids or two more adults.

Relax in a bath in front of a picture window with amazing views. Enjoy the feeling of showering in a river rock setting, surrounded by mosaics made from pebbles sourced from the local Abercrombie riverbed.

The house has a large wraparound verandah which has such depth that a completely extra living space and dining area has been created. Enjoy spectacular sunsets while dining on the verandah, or relax on verandah sofas while watching birds and wildlife drink at the dam in the gully. If you are feeling more energetic, our 2500 acre property features four well-marked bush walks, totalling 15 kilometres.

The closest town, Taralga, known for its historical heritage stone buildings and traditional wooden slab huts, lies about 25kms south of the farm, a scenic country drive of 15-20 minutes, and has a couple of pubs, a small takeaway store, a lovely General Store, Post Office, Gift Shop, a Heritage Museum that can be viewed by appointment, and many other little surprises.

The farm has patchy Telstra Mobile reception, however for those of you who may suffer from techno-withdrawkl, a phone and WiFi is available, at any time, up at the main farmhouse at the Tin Shed Art Gallery.

We look forward to seeing you at Koorakai.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We've fallen in love with Tanjenong! A little gem! When we were greeted by a menagerie of animals upon our arrival, we just knew we were going to love this place. Every morning we awoke to the tranquil views from the balcony - therapy for any suburbian dweller. We loved the freedom to walk through open fields and venture into the surrounding bushland, kids, grandparents and rough collie in tow. We can't thank Rob, David and Debs enough for making our stay so wonderful. Rob doubles as a fabulous tour guide through the Wombeyan Caves, another must-see highlight. The house is comfortable and provided all 7 of us us with plenty of space. Having no wifi was an additional bonus. It meant we had the opportunity to re-learn the art of puzzle constructing, board game playing and just enjoying one another's company without the interruption and distraction of devices. Be assured - we will be back! In fact, the grandparents are already planning their next trip.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect escape from it all My husband, myself and our two girls just spent 4 lovely days at Koorakai cottage. It was wonderful. No internet, no tv (but you can watch dvds) and no phone reception. We spent the four days reading and playing chess and card games. It was great respite from the world. Every morning we were greeted by a menagerie of donkeys, goats, sheep, alpacas and Molly the dog. My little girls just loved waking up and seeing the animals. I cannot recommend this property enough if you really feel you need to get away from it all. The owners were also great and gave us the space we needed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic peaceful break! Koorakai was amazing. No phone, TV or radio made for a great wind-down. The property was perfect for our group of 6 and the kids loved being able to roam freely and interact with the farm animals (loved the donkeys and feeding the baby goats) whilst also getting to see kangaroos, wombats and echidnas in the wild both around the farm and also on the four great signposted walks. We'll definitely be back!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Totally relaxing Our family stayed at Kooraki in the July school holidays. We had a brilliant time! The countryside is beautiful and we even had a bit of snow. There's a warm open fire, and a deep relaxing bath in the house. A bottle of red wine was also supplied. We went to the Wombeyan Caves where Rob was our informative guide. Deb & Rob are great hosts.
