Where you’ll be

Nimbin, New South Wales, Australia

We are a small rural property (17 ha) typical to the region, with young dairy cows and a bull grazing on the pasture. Wildlife is abundant. We have identified around 90 bird species on the property, including yellow-tailed black cockatoos. There are several species of frogs, dragon flies, and butterflies. The dam behind the cottage is home to saw-shell turtles, eels, water dragons and other reptiles. Mammals include platypus, bandicoots and red-necked wallabies, flying foxes and micro bats. Foxes and dingoes can be heard at night during their breeding season. We are in the heart of the 'Rainbow Region', surrounded by rainforests that are part of the World Heritage listed national parks, including Border Ranges, Wollumbin (Mt Warning), Nightcap and others--all a day trip away.
