We were joined by a possum, several kookaburras, bush turkeys & beautiful birds. There are many beautiful rainforest walks close by & Chichester dam. There is about a 3... More

Absolutley amazing trip away with my partner. Beautiful surrounds with waking up to tranquil birdlife. Relaxing walks and views wherever you look. Rolling hills and vibrant greenery as far as the eye can see. Cannot wait to go back!

I stayed here at the Possum cabin for 2 nights with my partner for his birthday and we had the most amazing time away from the city. It's not to be missed if you are a nature-enthusiast. Its peaceful, untouched by concrete development and has stretches and stretches of lush greenery, friendly wildlife..Its a very private and cozy cabin. Amanda... More

My partner (now fiance) and I stayed at Bluegum Cabins in September 2016 and we could not speak more highly of our stay. From the time we arrived, to the time we left we experienced a true 'romantic getaway'. We stayed for 2 nights and soaked up the natural beauty of the grounds and the cabin. The attention to detail... More

We had a very relaxing stay at Bluegums Cabins over the weekend 5th-7th March. After a receiving an unexpected (but much appreciated!) upgrade, we arrived on a Saturday afternoon to one of the nicely appointed and aptly named 'Nests', the first thing we noticed was the sound of the local bird life surrounding the cabin, which was really quite beautiful...
