The location of Barking Owl Retreat, at the end of a quiet road with farmland and woodland at the back, makes for a relaxing time with the opportunity to spot wildlife. The cottage itself was immaculate, very well furnished and equipped. Everything was comfortable including the bed which gave us a very good nights sleep. Sitting on the deck at... More

As soon as we arrived we could tell this quaint little cabin, set in front of a most beautiful back drop, would be special. Tanya was very welcoming on arrival and we were given a warm greeting by her beloved pets. Pulling up to the cabin just before sun set allowed for a beautiful view from the back deck, which... More

If you are looking for beautiful natural bush land views with kangaroos at sunset, the quietest sleep in you have ever had in an awesome bed, time to spoil and relax in the deepest spa ever, while someone else organises drinks and food then this is the place. 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

Delightful views over green fields and trees and lots of birds around in the bushes and the trees and overhead. The deck is just great to sit and have brekkie or read and relax or... 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.
