Another impossibly lovely hideaway with views through the odd shimmering gum tree back towards the rainforest. Robyn and Ian moved here from Melbourne and have made a real family home for themselves - a vegetable garden that produces much for the table, peacocks and geese that you can feed by hand and a heated swimming pool.....

.... They live next door to the main federation-style cottage and are on hand to whisk you up a delicious supper and drop freshly baked bread off at your door. This cottage is pristine: wicker chairs out on the verandah; polished wood floors, high ceilings and cool, crisp, contemporary design within. It can easily sleep eight and has ceiling fans and a huge shower. Couples may prefer the new cottages, situated in privacy 200 metres back from the house. These are country casual, open-plan and woody, with white walls, blue or green trim, gingham blinds and hammocks. All the cottages have wood-burners, private spa pools, reverse-cycle air-con, TVs, videos and CD players. Around you is peace and quiet, with parrots, kangaroos, the occasional platypus and a resident kookaburra (did I say peace and quiet?) for company. Robyn and Ian are very much hands-on owners and will talk you through where to swim, where to walk and much more. On-site aromatherapy massage suite, horse-riding, fishing, bush walks, boat trips, galleries, cafés, restaurants all close by.
