We enjoyed 3 wonderful nights stay at this well serviced Environmental Lodge. The Cabin was well situated away from other cabins so privacy ensured. Inside the cabin were 2 enormous bedrooms, with the Master bedroom the biggest I have seen anywhere I have stayed. Huge bathroom with larger than normal shower - spa to enjoy - well ventilated room.

We have been visiting Giraween and staying at the environmental lodges since they first opened. Secluded, well maintained with friendly staff and an abundance of scenery and wildlife, they are one of a few true 'getaway' locations. Away from the city lights, and digital noise. The quiet is awesome! Now we have two kids and they love it as well.... More

My partner and I visited Girraween Environmental Lodge for a weekend getaway and we were very impressed with the amazing customer service and the quality of the chalets. The property manager Kelly was very friendly and her awesome dog Tasman was an excellent companion on our hike around their property. They have multiple walks through their surrounding 400 acres and... More

We were lucky enough to be shouted a night at Girraween for our recent anniversary. From the moment we arrived and were greeted by Tasman the dog (and his wonderful owner!!) we were made feel comfortable and welcome. The chateau's were gorgeous and comfortable. It was certainly the relaxing night away we were looking for and we are looking forward... More

Had most of the family;y down in adjoining lodges (7 & 8) for 2 nights. Storms spectacular. Best place to stay as you can "do your own thing" away from phones, internet, and just relax and commune with nature.

Right from the moment we were greeted by Kelly, the property manager, Girraween Environmental Lodge provided the relaxed experience we were after, in unbelievably stunning natural surrounds, full of towering trees and curious kangaroos. All the cabins are comfortable and spacious, the pools and spa are lush, and there's some great hiking/running tracks nearby that, if you climb high enough,... More

We had the pleasure spending last two nights at the lodge courtesy of their generous donation to Operation Smile. What a wonderful place it is .... The bush scenery, country air, abundant wildlife and spectacular walks. The cabin was beautiful, cosy and clean. Certainly a relaxing break and we are looking forward to our next visit.

It started due to the many commitments in December - and became a fantastic team building exerience. The cabins were beautiful. The hikes on the property great for beginners - and a fantastic...
