Want a change of pace? Wallaby Cottage is the ideal getaway if you are looking for a quiet place in the country to spend time with family or friends. It is an affordable, peaceful paradise in a stunning location and only a short drive to all that the Hunter Valley has to offer.
Set on 35 acres of farmland, Wallaby Cottage is marvellous in summer and is a brilliant spot for a winter weekend where you can be cosy by the warmth of a wood fire. Verandas all around provide an excellent place to light up the barbecue. Here you can enjoy a long afternoon of well-spent, country house time as kookaburras laugh up in the trees and you sit back and appreciate the view of the horses and kangaroos as they leisurely graze in the paddocks.
Soak up the country life watching the free range chickens and guinea fowl as well as cattle and horses. See kangaroos at dawn and dusk and enjoy the wild birds, including king parrots, galahs and kookaburras. Lucky guests can watch the wedge-tailed eagles spiralling above the picturesque paddocks and over the tree covered hills.
For a memorable experience of country life at its best, to attend the concerts in the vineyards, enjoy the wineries, ballooning, the fine restaurants and everything else the Hunter has to offer, Wallaby Cottage is the place to stay.
All this and only 50 minutes from Newcastle and 90 minutes from Sydney.
