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.

The Bower Retreat is conducting a number of art/craft retreats this year.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome home Three generations of our family were well accommodated and everyone had everything they needed in our rather short stay at this lovely cottage.Marion was never out of reach and very welcoming and warm. Dont hesitate to book if you would like to experience a tranquil five star retreat!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous cottage The cottage was simple but perfect. Lots of details such as ground coffee in the fridge, plenty of towels, and lots of leaflets for local exploration.
