The decor is so sweet and full of little surprises. Three nights... More

The most beautiful and relaxing place to stay in the tablelands!!! The cabin was clean, the bed was super comfy and the spa bath topped it all off. We fished in the dam, had a camp fire and loved the BBQ on the deck. Barking Owl is a short drive to most activities the tablelands has to offer or you... More

My wife and I had a 1 night getaway at this lovely property. We were impressed with the cleanliness and completeness of the cabin. Every thing you could need layed out in a sensible manner. The Cabins were furnish beautifully and the bed was a Goldilocks one. We had dinner in Yungaburra which is only 10 mins away.

Peaceful, relaxing and everything you could need. We stayed two nights and it wasn't long enough , at least another day for just lazing around would have been fantastic! A great base to see all the attractions in the district and then relax in the peace and quiet. A great private setting in a cozy cottage, we had the two... More

Even before I actually got there, I believed I was I was going to like “Barking Owls Retreat” in the Atherton Tablelands. I was NOT disappointed. Tanya, the hostess and owner of this lovely, secluded B&B, was very attentive in finding out what would make us comfortable, before we ever left the US. I told her I was lactose intolerant... More
