we returned this afternoon, back to our house on a main road, back to the grind and the line at the supermarket after 3 wonderful nights at yelverton brook. oh, how we would love to turn around and go back to the tranquility and beauty that we experienced at this magical place. as animal lovers, the trust that the kangaroos placed in us, all day, was an absolute privilege. from waking in the morning, to night, there they were, wanting not only the carrots they knew awaited, but the pats they allowed us. little joeys poking their heads out of the pouch. by night it was possums eating out of our hands, woylies and bandicoots scampering around. yelverton brook is so private i never even met the owners (tho my partner did)...i do appreciate privacy, but would have loved to have thanked them in person for such a lovely stay and to also thank them for the wonderful job they are doing when it comes to our wildlife. so much of what they want to do depends on donations. bathrobes, slippers, fresh baked bread, eggs, milk and butter all there on arrival. if you are after glam, this is not the place for you, but if you are after comfort in the form of an extremely comfortable bed with lovely pillows and lovely linen, heating (or aircon), privacy, animal interaction and a beautiful spa under the stars, go there. we will be back absolutely and have already told so many of our friends and family.
