Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great pet friendly stay! My partner and our bull arab/bull mastiff dog has a great stay here. Annie was very friendly and the place had everything we needed. We also had lots of fun going to rainforest way, my partner is experienced in 4 wheeel driving and we were very lucky to have only got bogged once! If you’re not in a 4wd and don’t have experience, definitely take Annie’s directions instead of the GPS!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Peaceful setting, fantastic hosts! Annie, our host, was amazing - from the moment we enquired to stay and even after we had left. Annie & Darryn introduced our children to many of their farm animals as well as a frequent koala resident! The cottage was very cosy and clean, safe and fun. thank you for a short but very enjoyable and relaxing stay. We really hope to stay with you again in the future and would definitely recommend to anyone.
