This place was fantastic! I spent three nights here over the labour day long weekend with my fiance - we live in Brisbane and haven't spent any time in this area so we didn't know what to expect - but we were pleasantly surprised. The studio apartment we stayed in (studio 2) was a lovely little self contained cottage in the middle of a national park - one of 3 cottages on the property. The owners - Margaret and John - were lovely - they were helpful but not intrusive at all and we were able to spend three days relaxing with no access to internet, phone or tv (although there is a dvd player in the room and you can get dvds from the office, or bring your own). Being completely cut off was really relaxing, and waking up to the sound of the birds each morning was a pleasure. The cost of the studio includes breakfast each morning which is an enormous breakfast basket which on our stay included bacon and eggs, juice, yoghurt, cereals and milk. There was a hooded weber bbq that we cooked all our meals on and gas elements inside as well as a microwave and fridge and everything you need to cook. Because it's so isolated, you need to bring food with you, but that makes it a really affordable weekend and the breakfast is so big you don't need too much for lunch. The studios have a lovely balcony where we spend a lot of time sitting and reading, eating and drinking and watching the wildlife - there were even these two donkeys - they were particularly cool! The rainforest is beautiful and we did a few walks - the national park is 300 metres from the retreat and there's easy or hard walks and Margaret and John are happy to explain them all to you.
We'll definitely come again.
watch the drive in - the roads not great
