Things to do and local attractions

Come and escape from the everyday with your brand of relaxation

Sit back, relax and read a book, take a stroll along one of the many tracks around the property, or simply find a comfy spot to watch the abundance of wildlife, from wallabies, wombats, echidnas, kookaburras, king parrots and many more species of bird that fly around the grounds having their morning or afternoon tea. For the more adventurous, take a hike through the rainforest and waterfalls which are guaranteed to please.

At the end of the day soak in the spa or revitalize yourself in the infra-red sauna while taking in the majestic views. Sit around the outdoor fire pit (weather permitting) and cook up a traditional Aussie damper or just relax and let the flames take you away from your everyday cares. Relax in the picturesque pergola/entertainment area equipped with a 4 burner and wok plate BBQ. After dinner, take a guided evening stroll with spot lights and see our nocturnal neighbours – owls, wallabies, wombats, ringtail possums and if you’re lucky, a Bandicoot.

For those that like to get out and about, we are centrally based within reach of a variety of local attractions. Just minutes from the Calderwood Valley Golf course, there’s something to do for everyone.
