We stayed here for 2 nights to get away from it all and are so glad we did! Fireplace, spa tub, deck overlooking beautiful scenery, delicious daily breakfast, what more could you ask for?! The cabins are in a row but positioned perfectly so they are private,we only knew others were staying because we saw their cars - otherwise we... More

This was our third time staying here & we absolutely love it. YR would have to be one of the most peaceful getaways you could find, the surrounding countryside takes your breathe away. The cabins have everything (& more) that you need whether you stay for 1 night or a week. We love how the kookaburras & other birds sit... More

If you need some time out in the country, thus us the place. Barb & Lloyd provide your meals in your own cabin. Bar-b-que in the little balcony while you sit back and enjoy the quite. Kookaburras sitting in the trees, cows lowing, birds singing, a lovely fireplace inside your ever so comfy cabin. Spa also all in the privacy... More

After 5 weeks traipsing across Australia, culminating in the excitement of a family wedding, our 2 days spent here was a fantastic way to relax and unwind. It had been arranged by our relations, parents of the groom, who had enjoyed a previous visit and had wanted to bring us here. Everything about Yabbaloumba exceeded our expectations - the warm...

I spent a wonderful week at Yabbaloumba Retreat on my own. I needed to recharge my batteries and reconnect with nature. I spent the week without any internet, minimal TV, eating healthy food, watching the geese on the lake, swimming in the creek and finding myself after a very stressful time. This was the perfect place to do this. The... More

The attention to detail in this accommodation is absolutely second to none. Prior to staying, I saw that many reviewers had written, "the owners have thought of everything", and I wasn't quite sure what this could mean, but it is no exaggeration; binoculars, hiking sticks, a book about the local birds... I was so impressed to see all of these... More
