Description

Escape from the rat race Get right away from the pressures and stress of modern life. Nurture yourself with Nature. Breathe in the clean country air, amaze yourself with the enormity of the heavens as you stargaze at night. Sit and fish or just wait for the platypus. Walk in the bush and look for koalas. Listen to the burble of the ever flowing river. Swim in pristine waters, kayak the 4 kilometres of river, marvelling at the wildlife. Restore your soul with home cooked organic food in a true oasis. Cuddle the animals or just view from a distance - the choice is yours.

Avalon River Retreat is a world away from care. A place to rest and restore body, mind and soul. For singles seeking space, couples looking for a place to love and be, or families wanting to share the wonders of the natural world with their children. Avalon will reconnect you to the land, the circle and cycles of life, the miracle of Mother Nature and recalibrate your place in the infinitessimal scheme of things.

Your accommodation is a one bedroom cedar cottage with additional single mattress, overlooking the main river flat where the alpacas and brumbies spend most of their time. Close enough to the farm house to come and enjoy feeding times 350m but far enough away to enjoy the peace of a world of your own. Perched on a hillside, The Tree House has panoramic views of The Milky Way and beyond - leave the curtains open and drift off to sleep under star spangled skies.

Polished timber floors from the local mill, camphor laurel bench top, cedar windows , fence paling coffee table and antique pine blanket box, give The Tree House its name - this is a wooden wonderland which soothes your tired mind and feeds your weary soul.

Choose to self cater or let us nurture you with traditional farm food. Breakfast on homemade organic muesli, fresh farm milk and home made yoghurt. Add some honey from our bees and you are ready for the day

For supper BBQ our steer steaks or sausages, lamb, pork or goat in season. Pick a salad from the veggie patch or feast on our home grown and handmade hearty soul food - taste the difference

As in life, at Avalon the choice is always yours. Come back to your heart, reconnect with your soul, ground yourself in this beautiful place and return, refreshed, to your reality.

Included in your tariff:

- Homemade organic muesli

- milk, yoghurt, butter, honey & seasonal spread

- Farm fresh eggs

- Use of Kayaks for both Adults and Children

400 acres and 4 kilometres of river frontage

Avalon comprises 400 acres of rolling pasture, pristine rainforest and pasture. Adjoining State Forest means that our nearest neighbour is 4 kilometres away - feel your soul soar at the space and freedom. Our Platypus population is extraordinary and testament to the crystal clear waters - approximately one Platypus every 50 metres. Take the time to sit patiently and wait for the platypus to pop up. Koalas are rarer and more tricky to spot - but they are there so keep looking up Plenty of goannas, wallabies, water dragons, Bass, turtles, frogs, parrots of all shapes and sizes, wedge tailed and sea eagles, so bring a camera and binoculars if you have them.

Admire the native species and get up close and personal with the domesticated farm animals. Hand feed the alpacas, cuddle the cows, get to know the horses, scratch a sow, feed the ducks and chooks and fill up on their delicious eggs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what we needed Thank you Sophie, Ged and Ben for such a relaxing and welcoming stay on your property. The children loved all the animals, the river and the vast area to explore. I loved all the great food and relaxing in the peace and quiet that your property offered. Your hospitality was impeccable and the cottage was perfect for what we were looking for. We hope to see you again in the future.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect quiete getaway even with children We passed 3 really nice days with Sophie and Ged: floating on the river with the kids, pony riding for our daughter, the tour to see all the animals, enjoying our fresh breakfast and the tasty dinners prepared by Sophie - thanks again for being such good hosts. And yes, the tree house was a lovely place to stay: nicely decorated, beautiful view, with always kangoeroes or other animals to spot. Our top stay in Australië so far!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Experience of a life time! Best way to wind down 2016! Thank you, Ged and Sophie for this beautiful experience. It was love at first sight for me when I saw the tree up on the hill in front of the cabin! Love it. Love it! Some first-evers for me were petting Angel, the beautiful moo, Firefly the alpaca is so friendly and Venus the horse. She will always be in my memory! Venus is such a doll. She is so beautiful. Only minutes into our meeting and I swear I saw a smile from her when I was petting her. Sophie and Ged … you did a great job with your farm. I am so happy that I made the decision to have this experience with you. I fully recommend it for everyone, young and old. You owe yourself this experience of a life time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent property We stayed for a weekend and although we were out all day we loved coming home each night to such a comfortable, peaceful and relaxed setting. The house is well set out, very clean and tidy and comes with a few homemade treats etc to enjoy while you are there. We didnt get a chance to explore but did a bit of fishing and managed to catch a small.Bass in the 30 min fishing trip. Hosts are lovely - welcoming, accommodating and good with communication. We will definitely be going back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great getaway! We highly recommend staying at Avalon. Sophie, Ged and Ben were such lovely people, and were so happy to show us round the farm and answer all our questions. We loved walking through the rain forest and swimming in the creek... we even caught a tasty bass for dinner. The highlight was definitely the animals... they are all so friendly! A great escape into the country.
