What!? On the rim of a volcano? Our brave inspector almost faltered. Barb and Kerry have built six amazing, self-contained stilt houses on the very edge of the steep rim.....

.... Four face the surrounding farmland and other distant (and less exclusive) volcanoes. Two face into the crater, but, calmez-vous, the volcano is dormant and its centre is a water marsh, home to much native wildlife living in their own private eco-system just under your nose. Endangered tree-climbing kangaroos make their home here, as do bandicoots, but you don’t have to look down for them, just out, since you really are in the tree canopy. Each house is very private. There is one major wall at the back, but the rest is designed to make the view as seamless as possible. There is lots of glass between upright polished stakes that support high vaulted ceilings. There are swivelling wood-burners, double spa baths, deep beds, red kitchens full of fresh roses, bowls of local fruit and three cabins have funky outside showers. Breakfast is a hamper full of good country fare: local fruits, honey, breads and even proper pork sausages. You are spoiled by the loveliest of hosts and after you’ve been given your welcome basket - home-baked muffins, booties in winter, chocs and port - they will fill you in on what to do in the Tablelands area. Laundry facilities in each cabin.
