Possums Hideaway was the perfect place for our group of families to stay. The central BBQ and cooking area was terrific and the grounds were perfect for the kids to play safely. We couldn't have been happier.

The room was amazing. A cosy cabin for two. Quiet surroundings and beautiful in the mornings. It was the perfect getaway. We will definitely be planning a return trip, possibly over the winter so we can make use of the wood fire. I would highly recommend it for anyway that wants or needs to get away.

The grounds were very well maintained and created a very peaceful and relaxing feel. The tennis court provided much fun. Close proximity to all main tourist sights and bush walks. Excellent weekend away, would definately recommend to friends and family.

We stayed in a lovely, recently redecorated cottage in a beautiful bushland setting. All that we needed was on hand from a well equipped kitchen, to a warm pool, even DVDs and a small games room. The owners were friendly and very helpful. My family and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will definitely be returning here to explore this... More

This does it exactly what it says on the tin... there are possums and it is a woodland hideaway. Okay, so the cabins aren't exactly "new" but that said, it is superb value for money, the cabins are clean and have everything you are looking for... wood piled high for the fire (yes! even in November we needed the wood...

I wouldn't recommend this place to anyone unless your possibly a backpacker! We stayed there for our mini honeymoon. When we arrived on the night of our wedding, we opened the door to find the fridge open & broken glass from a shelf smashed everywhere. When we called them to advise them, they told us that they won't do anything... More

A few girlfriends and I had the pleasure of staying in the cottage over the weekend and had a very pleasurable experience. Situated by many spectacular lookouts, swarms of rosellas and rhododendrons galore, the atmosphere spoke for itself. The swimming pool onsite was wonderfully relaxing- not too cold and not too warm. I had a late night dip while others... More
