Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed June 9, 2013

We stayed at the Bunyip as part of our honeymoon and it was such a good choice. Rob and Marina cooked us amazing food and their hospitality was outstanding. The views of the scenic rim and the Great Dividing Range are amazing and truly memorable. Also the stars at night are great. The great room is a work of art and made dinner and breakfasts special. We really enjoyed our stay and will be back in the future.

What a gem! I found The Bunyip online and was taken by the pictures of the rooms and the amazing views. My husband and I stayed for two nights and despite arriving after dinner on the Friday evening, we were greeted by the warm hospitality of Rob and Marina who welcomed us to have a glass of wine and relax by the fire in the Great Room. The Great Room has comfortable lounges by the fire and is also the location for intimate dinners, cooked by Rob and Marina. The Bunyip has four two storey apartments, each with an uninterrupted view of the Scenic Rim. On Saturday morning, we saw an amazing sunrise through the two story glass wall, from the comfort of our bed. The bed was very comfortable and the 1000 thread count linen was soft and relaxing. For breakfast, you have the option of a continental or cooked and if you're lucky, a chance to taste Marina's fantastic muffins. If you stay at The Bunyip, you must have dinner there, Rob and Marina know how to have a dinner party and the Great Room can easily provide an intimate dinner experience for four couples. It's a lovely experience in between courses, to take your glass of wine and relax on the lounges in front of the fire. As hosts, Rob and Marina are very warm and friendly and are happy to provide recommendations for things to do and see in the local area. We have no hesitation in recommending The Bunyip to even the fussiest of our friends and look forward to staying again.

I didn't know what to expect of this 'out of the way' location. First up, it's not really out of the way - just out of Boonah near Ipswich. The four apartments are excellent - first rate, comfortable. The view from the apartments across the valley is breathtaking. The Great Room is a remarkable, open yet inviting space with comfy chairs, fireplace, huge video projection (if you want it), and a well-decked out kitchen. You can self-cater or have Rob and Marina do a superb job of this. I was only there for one night by myself, but will certainly bring my wife back for a special weekend. The place is a hidden gem that deserves to be discovered.

This venue provides the most amazing getaway experience within a very easy drive to Brisbane. Rob and Marina - what a wonderful and hospitable couple. If you enjoy good food, you must eat in.Watch Rob prepare your meal and get some tips along the way! Very affordable, great quality 3 course meal, and it's BYO!!! Our room was well fitted out and had everything you need - including an amazing view. We enjoyed the privacy - only 4 rooms, so you feel like you have the place to yourself! The Great Room offers spectacular views and a homey feel. Sit around the fireplace and listen to music, or read, or enjoy the view! We'll be back! :)

Room Tip: All rooms are fitted out exactly the same, except for the colour scheme and have the same amazing vi...

We found this amazing resort on the net for our 30th anniversary. Rob and Marina were fabulous hosts. The apartment, it is much more than a room, was excellent, the bed and linen first class, the decor was excellent and the view through the full height windows, with auto blinds, was exceptional! you can lie in bed and look at the amazing endless views.
The food was 5 star, Rob spoilt us with amazing menus, (maybe Rob should enter MKR) the muffins by Marina were amazing!
Thank you so very much for making our brief celebration so memorable!

What can I say? from the minute we stepped outta the car and into Bunyip - we were in heaven. The hosts Rob & Marina welcomed us with open arms and the whole time we were there, they couldn't of been more helpful and just wonderful if they tried. We felt so comfortable and right at home, the views were breath taking.. waking up and falling asleep to gorgeous and stunning views of the great dividing range with my partner, pretty much created dream moments haha we spent 3 nights and loved every second.. the food, the service, the rooms, the bed, the location..the whole lot! i will defs be recommending this to all my family & friends and i will be back one day for sure. :)

Room Tip: just book!! you will not be dissapointed
