We really enjoyed our stay here. very comfortable accommodation on a property with beautiful surrounds. Peaceful and the onsite owners were really lovely and welcoming. A happy departure from the drab motels and caravan parks. Saw some fish and platypus in the river. Books, games and DVD's in the apartment, thoroughly relaxing. Will stay again!

We could hear cars and trucks from... More

The pademelons and bush turkeys were so cute and fun to have around. Some more kindling for the fire would be helpful, it just made it a little difficult to... More

We stayed in the Coolara chalet for three nights at the beginning of September 2009 and were extremely happy and comfortable there. The Facts: Coolara is a secluded two storey wooden chalet surrounded by rainforest and wildlife. Upstairs contains a master bedroom with a huge... More
