-N´d-?ad even managed to organise a rainbow for when I arrived. He and Lynette live with their three children high in the mountains on twenty lush hectares of farmland plateau an hour from Brisbane in a World-Heritage-listed National Rainforest Park.....

.... It’s very private… if you ignore the koalas, wallabies, kangaroos, horses and dogs. And the parrots and lorikeets which swarm the ancient, purple-flowering jacaranda trees in the summer evenings. The views from the two cottages are so good that, when renovating, they made the front walls almost entirely of glass, so now you can drink your uninterrupted fill of the rainforest canopy and the rugged mountains. The cottages epitomise casual country chic with a practical edge and are immaculately styled and beautifully furnished, the smaller in pinks and greens, the other in blue and cream. They have wide, polished floors, double spas in the bathrooms and unpainted wooden dressers in the all-you-could-want kitchen. The cottage garden’s deck is well placed for brunch-time sun (and Lynette will do a gourmet mostly-home-made breakfast hamper) but the front deck was built for the sunsets. Whilst sampling the gourmet biscuits and truffles on offer, Andrew and I settled back into the deep stripy couches and chatted about golfing in the Loire and in-house aromatherapy massages. Springbrook National Park 5 mins, 12 waterfalls all nearby.
