We were looking for the cottage and drove to a wrong road - gps error. Apparently, yering gorge cottage is through a dirt road - about 2-3 mins drive given that our sedan cannot drive really fast on dirt road and there might be kangeroos and animals around as well.
We arrived half hour earlier but was promptly brought to our cottage.
The lovely lady came by and showed us the cottage. Informed us that there will be daily papers at our door step as well as fresh bread every couple of days. There is a complimentary bottle of red wine as well as a breakfast basket filled with loads - fruits, cereal, Jams. Milk and butter were provided.
They have a BBQ pit just at the balcony. We didn't have time to BBQ anything.
In the evenings, there were load of wildlife. we saw many kangeroos hoping around. Huge bunnies. Many type of birds. It is actually a nice walk around the area. Just be aware of the kangeroo poos all around the grass patch.
It is extremely quiet place. Love it. Would love to come back again.
