We had booked 4 nights at the Bushland Chalet, but decided to leave after 2 nights. Why? Not because there was anything wrong with the chalet, Sylvie and Greg were great, and the chalet was spotless, elegant and with a fantastic view. But for us, being really city folks, we watched the view, and we watched the view, and that was about all we could do. We felt trapped, being located on the edge of the escarpment, nowhere to go, nothing to do except watching the birds (And we are not birdwatchers, could identify the galah's and the Kookaburra's though, but we have those at home in Brisbane as well), and the option of driving 40K to have lunch at Rudd's Pub, or visiting the Preston Peak Winery for lunch platter on Wednesday and onwards - yes, we are wine lovers and collectors, but prefer the wider range of Darling Downs Wineries when they have a festival. So for us - no return, but for anyone who will be fascinated by being in the middle of nowhere with breathtaking views and content with your own company, the place is highly recommended!
