Enjoy gracious hospitality and great service at this luxury retreat, just one and a half hours from Brisbane. Set high on a hill, the studio enjoys beautiful views over the dam and countryside and catches the cool breezes. Attention to detail is fabulous and includes binoculars, field guide of birds and a map of the night sky which is stunning!... More

Melawondi is perfect for a couple's getaway. The attention to detail is spot-on. My husband who normally is a hard-to-please person was impressed. We had a wonderful 2-night stay just to re-charge. Tanya is a great cook. Dinners (3 courses) were left in the fridge for us to enjoy at our own pace and was fantastic. We will be back... More

This is the place to go when you want to get out of the rat race. A weekend away or just a weeks holiday will get you re-energized. I would definitely consider coming back again for a holiday and recommend it to anyone looking for a romantic holiday or just a break from the city.
