SUMMER 23/24

Set in over 13 hectares of Australian bushland, this boutique style accommodation is much more than a resort. It’s also a sanctuary dedicated to saving endangered Brush-tailed and Yellow-footed Rock Wallabies


The rooms with private romantic spas and freestanding bathtubs offer secluded garden outlooks that mean you may wake in the mornings to the sight of wallabies rock-hopping just the other side of your lawn.

The tranquility of the property encourages you to relax, unwind, take a dip in the pool, and appreciate nature at your doorstep. You’ll come across rehabilitating Eastern Grey and Red Kangaroos, Swamp and Red-necked Wallabies grazing close by, and guests are encouraged to become better acquainted with them.

There are winding bush paths that you can wander or take a hardy ‘golf’ buggy through tall waratahs, Gymea lillies, tree ferns, and gullies where you can discover the waterfalls and springs that give the property its name.

There are behind the scenes tours where you’ll learn what makes this Australia’s largest breeding facility for Brush-tailed Rock Wallabies. And at night there is a guided glow-worm tour. Or, for the truly romantic, there’s a clifftop daybed deep in the bushland (privacy guaranteed).
