Treat yourself to a totally private and immersive High Country Escape.

You will enjoy a fully equipped gourmet, granite kitchen with double oven, stove, microwave, dishwasher and huge island bench. The 18 meter long, open entertainment area includes a large dining room table, slow combustion fire and huge open fireplace.
Constructed from local hardwood timber, the house is imbued with a distinctive Australian aesthetic and the walls are decorated with botanical eucalyptus drawings.
Spend summer evenings on the expansive veranda, taking in panoramic vistas and breathtaking sunsets and when the cooler weather arrives, unwind with a glass of wine and enjoy the rustic appeal of a roaring open fire.
If you are keen for adventure, take an exhilarating wilderness walk or kayaking adventure on the Tooloom river. Pack a picnic hamper, fishing rods and sunglasses and head for the river, where you can cast a lure and wait for a bass to strike.

The architecturally designed homestead is perfect for large families or groups, with its wrap around veranda and spacious, travertine ensuites, adjoining every room.

For biosecurity reasons, we ask that you leave your pets at home, but feel free to encounter the many cattle, horses, Pretty Faced Wallabies, occasional shy koalas and platypus that call this landscape their home.

I trust when you are heading for home,
You are refreshed and brimming with memories....... already planning for the next time you stay.

Happy days,

Cara McMurtrie.

My Husband and I, own an operational forestry and cattle property, straddling the eastern side of the Great Divide. Our expansive, five bedroom family home has been built from the surrounding, native hardwood timber and the efforts of our neighbours and children, Hunter and Mia.
I love to immerse myself in nature, bush walking, horse riding, fishing and archery. I enjoy entertaining......... sourcing the freshest meats, produce and ingredients from the surrounding slopes and the Darling Downs.
I could not live without Tiger Bread and Brie, so naturally I savour the taste of great Australian Wine.
Byron Bay is matchless in terms of culture......biodiversity as well as atmosphere and my favourite authors are Stieg Larsson and Douglas Kennedy.
When it comes to relaxing, I listen to " Ben Howard " and "Florence and the Machines" and I am inspired by family and friends.
