Wow, wow wow, this is truly a special place to unwind and relax nestled over looking Mount Maroon and Mount Barney. Mick and Gayle make you feel so welcome and nothing is a bother for them. The views are awesome, the accommodation is just like a home away from home,loved the added on bbq area and fire pit that we had, plus the fire place inside the cabin for those cold nights was awesome as was the reverse cycle air con. You have everything that you need at your finger tips. If you are looking for somewhere to relax and have not a care in the world , then look no further. We will definitely be coming back to stay again.

We stayed a Tuckeroo Cottages for three nights. Every moment was relaxing and enjoyable. We loved the warm welcome that we received from Gail, Steve, Suzie & Caddie. The views were amazing, the breakfast that was supplied was plentiful, the wood fire heater was heavenly and the cottage was very comfortable.The peace and tranquillity were bliss. We only left the cottage once and that was to take a walk down to the river (escorted by one of the gorgeous dogs - Caddie. We cannot wait to come back one day.

We needed respite from the busyness of life, and Tuckeroo provided that. Set on a quiet hillside, looking out on a couple of the mountains of the Scenic Rim, it was as if you were at your own private retreat. We loved the meticulously neat and well appointed cabin, the fire, the stillness. Sitting on the deck watching the mountain silhouetted against the fading sky was magical. Gail was so friendly and accommodating. We came away rested and refreshed.

Second stay at Tuckeroo Cottages was as good as the first. Cosy, comfortable cottage with a wonderful view of Mt Maroon and Mt Barney. Well situated to discover the delights of the Scenic Rim. Provisions provided were much appreciated....cereal, juice, bottle of milk and bread with am array of jams, teas and coffee machine, cosy fireplace, plenty of wood all added to the holiday experience.
