Peta and Jon Nott have transformed their property into a paradise. Rose Gums is truly a retreat. The tree houses are so private you are not aware there is anyone else within cooee. So, so relaxing - could spend all day, or several, just in the tree house with beautiful books to browse, games to play, spas to be had. Birds, butterflies, flowers, trees and mountains to look at.
Then if you feel like a walk, try not to tread on the frogs as you bush walk to the creek or waterfall to see platypus while birdwatching and identifying other fauna and flora using the wonderful guide cards provided in your room. Or hire Jon to take you for a guided birdwatching tour to give you all the information about the beautiful birds that reside on or visit the property.
If you feel like being a tourist there is a myriad of places to go within a short drive and Rose Gums will help with all the places to see and visit.
If you are lucky enough to get to this part of Queensland, a must is the town of Yungaburra, a wonderful artisan town. We had lunch at the Whistle Stop Cafe which was an absolute delight - happy laughing staff, and the singing cook made our day. I hear the pub is also good but we didn't get there.
