Train station only 10 minutes away - however all other public transport is far and few between. Preferably your own vehicle is ideal to get around

Julie could not have made us feel more welcome, after a long drive from Sydney, prepared a delicious meal and also cared for our dog. The home is very comfortable & designed in a very eclectic style, or arts & crafts, particularly handworked glass.
Wonderful place to stay, lot of place to explore right in the property. Beautiful host, her family treats me like I am at home.
I would visit again this place when I get back here.
Julie was the perfect host - relaxed, welcoming and respectful. She has a beautiful home - we loved the balcony and the magnesium pool. Delicious homemade pizza for dinner, eggs from chickens out the back for breakfast. Highly recommended!
We stayed 3 nights at julie's place and would surly recommend it to anyone :) !
The house is really nice with a lovely pool. We shared dinner the tree nights with julie and her son and had a lovely time. Julie is a great cooker and knows very well the area. She even taught us how to cook a pavlova. the room is in Julie's house but she really made us feel at home.
This is truly a magical place to visit, Julie is a wonderful hostess to ensure I was comfortable at all times, she is a very good cook as well, it's a great stop for halfway between Brisbane and Sydney, I definitely will be staying here again, the gardens and the surrounding rainforest just adds to the ambience of the place, lovely beaches close by as well.
Julie s house is so perfect.
Big rooms, very large pool, beautiful pass in the rain forest.
