About the property

Bushland Retreat is the perfect place to relax and forget about the demands of life for a while.

The cottage is set on 20 acres of undulating landscape. There are vistas over the reserve and water (dependent on rainfall) and ample stars on clear nights.

We had a great time, the accomodation was exactly as described. Very private and relaxing. Surrounded by nature. Less than ten minutes drive to some nice beaches, cafes and country pubs.

Relaxing, peaceful escape from the hustle & bustle

  • 4 of 5

The Bushland Retreat was an excellent way to get a break from everything. We enjoyed the peaceful, tranquil surrounds and the chorus of frogs at night. The roos, wallabies, koalas and native on our walks around the property were plentiful.

The cottage is on a farmland, well away from town. Lovely setting but probably not suitable for business travellers, or people who like to be close to amenities. Very quiet and surrounded by birds and kangaroos, so suitable for any age requiring that setting.
