We were thoroughly taken care of at this enchanting property. Marina's massages are worth the stay alone, combined with Rob's great cooking (catering for special dietary needs) and the couples friendly presence to anticipate for our needs but not be in the way made the 3 nights we relaxed at the Bunyip Scenic Rim Resort and absolute treat.

We stayed here for our 2nd anniversary and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Rob and Marina are fantastic hosts, the food was delicious - all fresh local produce - and the rooms are spacious, comfortable and private. The view from the room is unparalleled, stretching all across the scenic rim. With floor to ceiling windows you can enjoy the view from... More

Had an amazing time at The Bunyip for our first wedding anniversary and my wife’s birthday. Robert and Marina are excellent hosts; they were knowledgeable and very caring. They really made our stay an enjoyable one. The dinner made by Robert was top class and I would rate it similar to eating a 3 stars Michelin restaurant. The atmosphere is... More

What an exciting way to spend our first wedding anniversary. My wife and I had the most amazing time here, waking up those spectacular views with only the sounds of birds, getting cozy by the wood fire with a glass of wine in the Great Room before/after dinner, watching the sunsets from the pool, the list goes on and on....

This is our second visit to this great, secluded retreat, and it continues to delight. If you want to escape, enjoy the scenery and fresh air, and some amazing food, this is a great place to visit. With only four couples accommodated, you really do feel like you have your own place. Marina and Rob are amazing hosts who make... More

My wife and I stayed here for about 4 days. The hosts Marina and Rob are top people making sure our stay was enjoyable. The accommodation was terrific... A very modern apartment with everything needed opening out onto a spacious lawn and close to the pool. The food was as good as a 6 star restaurant and was prepared to... More

We stayed for two nights early in January and were absolutely blown away by every aspect of the beautiful Bunyip. The rooms, the view, the facilities, the hosts & the food - all simply incredible. Two nights felt like a week, in the best way possible, as you can do nothing other than completely relax and enjoy the utter serenity... More

We have stayed at similar boutique resorts in Gold Coast area & this overall was the best. Great room, quiet away from all hustle & bustle but short drive to Boonah. Rob & Marina really good hosts, more like staying with friends. Food is brilliant, we were asked if anything we would not eat then it was left with them... More

The Bunyip is a gem! I dont normally write reviews but had to share our wonderful experience. The Bunyip is only an hour's drive from the city of Brisbane you could easily do a weekend getaway. After a stroke of luck with availability over new year's, four of us (two couples) found this place and had a few days of... More

We spent three nights here between Christmas and New Year. Accommodation although not 5 star was great. Fab big king bed. Very quiet but no bath or spa facilities. View was to die for across the scenic rim. Food was spectacular and thanks to Rob and Marina we had a perfect few days away. If you like 4 wheel driving... More

Thanks Sharee. When we built The Bunyip the bath/spa discussion went on for ages. The Bunyip is built on the side of a mountain and all our water is stored in tanks and we treat all our own waste so eventually the eco argument won. We were in the middle of a prolonged drought and initially had to truck water... More
