Situated 7Kms from new England Highway EAGLEHAWK is a home, which will be fully restored to original 1860 condition. With stand alone solar power and heated throughout with fuel efficient timber burning fires, it has potential to offer a perfectly quiet and complete country rest. Bird watching is a feature, and eagle hawks have found this place to nest. Splityard Creek can be watched from the wide verandahs which take in the bushland views on east, north and west, where cattle graze the paddocks.
Activities are for the adventurous or not so. You may Bushwalk through pristine corners where koalas can be heard before being spotted, and trails created by following the sun go overhead. Away from home there are documented food trails, which go hand in hand with cellar door wineries; and art trails that follow a similar theme with wineries as their venue. Tennis is weather dependant and available at Sorrento. By getting more active some serious hiking in nearby national Parks may take you away from simply staying "at home"
Eaglehawk will provide space enough for gatherings of friends, or simply to spoil yourself in seclusion. Garden and yards created from original sheep yards give the grand feeling of yesteryear, when rural life was 'the Australian way"
Excellent facilities of thriving townships ensure you'll find what is needed within 30mins travelling time, and necessities of food and drink are found locally at the many owner run enterprises producing speciality products for which they are known. Keep this is mind for future stays

CURLEW COTTAGE is the original worker's cottage for this large beef raising property. The activities of Sorrento have been limited to raising stud Charolais cattle, thus maintaining a truly rural life style but with labour saving adjustments This makes the cottage a unique adventure where you will feel part of the property's regular day, or venture away,for variety is here to be experienced. Children love to feed up poddy calves, be in contact with our dogs and horses or use their pushbikes on the gravel roads between buildings both used and now unused. We can manage a camp fire on occasions when the weather lends itself, and you will enjoy the wood fired heater on many evenings on the Granite Belt.
So little to do, and so much to feel, from the wide open spaces, quiet nights and the changing climate which brings visitors for our Brass Monkey weather
