Overview

About the property

Watersmeet is a nature lover's paradise, blessed with many rare wilderness habitats protected by the S.E. Queensland Regional Eco-Plan and private access to the adjoining Bellthorpe National Park. It is also a part of Land for Wildlife, a nation-wide conservation program that supports the maintenance and enhancement of native flora and fauna. Our guests have spotted wild goannas, wallabies, echidna, even koalas, and countless bird species to name a few. For those interested in taking time to understand the bush tucker, there are mushrooms, ginger, rasberries and many species that can be eaten throughout the property.

The property is blessed with rolling pastures, tropical rainforests, dams and waterholes as well as forests of black butt and tallow wood that can be explored on 8 different trails. On the Knoll, the highest point at Watersmeet, you can enjoy 360 degree views of the ocean, Glasshouse Mountains and the Conondale Valley - a panorama that is absolutely unique in the region.

With pristine nature at its doorstep, the self-contained Watersmeet home is a modern sanctuary suited to all our guests' needs. It accommodates up to 10 people and offers stylish simplicity with a personal touch. Behind and around the home are vegetable and herb gardens, as well as a low maintenance rainforest garden that is a natural extension of the adjacent landscape. Cherry guava, coffee, mulberry, banana, bay leaf, sasparilla and bush lemon trees also surround the home for you to pick your own tasty snacks.

Both children and adults love watching the cattle and horses, feeding the chickens and geese near the house, and perhaps even finding some fresh eggs in the morning. You can wake up to a breathtaking sunrise, picnic under a canopy of palms, cuddle up by the fire, or spot your favorite constellations on a cool, crisp night. For a change of pace, the charming town of Maleny is only 15 minutes away for you to enjoy its restaurants and boutiques.

What a weeekend

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic weekend. From the moment we arrived we were totally blown away by the view and the size of property as well. We had 3 families including children and it felt very spacious with plenty of space and seating around the fire for some end of day beverages. The dining room/kitchen also had plenty of seating and the deck was huge and was a great place to sit and take in the views. The property itself was great, the kids loved seeing the cows and going exploring through the many walking trails, they loved racing each other back up the hill to the house (the adults were a bit slower). The view from the knoll at the top of the property is just breathe taking, it is easily accessible by foot or an easy drive up. Watersmeet had everything we needed, it came with plenty of fire wood for the weekend. We will be back next winter. Thanks again for your hospitality.

Watersmeet

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed a family celebration for 2. Days with 8 adults and 2 young children. Had plenty of room. 2 fridges which was good, although we didn't need second one. Had a wood burning fire place which was good once we figured it out. Lovely views. Bulls and cows but 1 poor lonely hen was a bit sad. Mouse lives in BBQ. Some things need instructions to use, broom was useless and vacuum cleaner doesn't work too well.

Great Family Destination

  • 5 of 5

Watersmeet is a wonderful country home. We stayed 3 nights with our family and 2 small grandchildren who never stopped smiling. The house has everything needed for a very comfortable family holiday, with the view from the beautiful deck truely magnificent. The fireplace made for a very warm cosy environment at night, and the chickens and cows were a big hit with the grandchildren. Very relaxing for all.

Picturesque Property and Beautiful House

  • 5 of 5

We were so excited when we arrived at Watersmeet. It exceeded our expectations. The view from the deck was amazing. The house was beautifully presented, well equipped and extremely warm and cosy. We enjoyed all the walks around the paddocks, picking lemons and collecting eggs. It was the perfect family getaway and we look forward to coming back!

Couldnt believe our Eyes

  • 5 of 5

Arriving on this absolutely amazing property, we couldn't believe our eyes. The views were nothing like we had seen before, It was like we had to keep pinching ourselves. A beautiful sanctuary- perfect for our girls weekend. Thoroughly enjoyed cuddling around the fire in the chilly weather. Can't wait to come back, already planning our next stay:)
