Base yourself at this exceptional new retreat to enjoy the best the property has to offer in luxurious private and beautifully appointed self contained lodges.
Slow the pace of life by relaxing in front of a log fire on a cool winter's night in the comfort of your own lodge, or sipping cocktails on your verandah as you watch the sun set behind the mountains on warm tropical evenings.
Take a leisurely stroll through our rainforest alongside the creek listening to the flow of running water and spot the Buff Breasted Paradise Kingfisher in the summer months. Wake to the early morning mists, charge your camera batteries and take a stroll around the property capturing the flighty agile wallabies or spot our resident platypus in the swimming hole.
Bush bbq facility
Enjoy our 50 square metre covered area bush bbq facility down on the edge of the creek by the platypus pond. Take down a picnic lunch and relax on the water's edge or prepare and cook your bbq dinner as the sun sets and the myriad of stars take over in the night sky. Look out for night owls, possums, platypus, wallabies and curlews as night falls. Listen to the sounds of frogs and cicadas, reminding you of your wonderful tropical surroundings. During the winter months enquire about the central log fireplace.
