Dragonfly Cottage Springbrook

Bedrooms 2
Property type hotel
Minimum Stay 1 - 3 nights


About the property

Situated right at Purlingbrook Falls, you're only minutes away from breath-taking lookouts and national park rainforest, Dragonfly cottage is a fully self contained cottage nestled in the rainforest, yet a short walk away from Springbrooks best attractions. The walking trails on your doorstep take you to a magical world through rainforest, from the spectacular lookouts above the falls, to longer trails that run under the falls and down to Warringa pool, a beautiful spot for a swim or picnic.

Of course the cottage is fully equiped with all the usual facilities like an LCD TV, Bluray player and ipod dock, but its sometimes the little things that can make a holiday. Things like the bird feeding, hiking poles and water bottles, a picnic set and rug, coffee grinder and plunger, books on the area and Australian habitats and wildlife and activities for the kids. You can spend hours relaxing on the huge raised covered deck overlooking Kuralboo creek and it's surrounds, with outdoor heating and a 4 burner gas barbecue. Here you'll most likely meet a number of our local visitors including a family of Kookaburras, lorikeets and rozellas.

Springbrook and its surrounds are truly inspirational. You may like to relax and enjoy the atmosphere, check out the views, indulge at the local cafes, treat yourself to a massage and visit the nearby winery. Perhaps you fancy a walk under the rainforest canopy, past ancient tress, streams and waterfalls and swimming in a pool of clear cool mountain water or seeing the milkyway sparkle in the dark skies of the mountain. Nature lovers will appreciate the myriad of bird and animal life they come accross, including paddymelons, king parrots, crimson rosellas, rainbow lorikeets, kookaburras, water dragons, possums, goannas, blue crays and the occassional black cockatoo. Artists and photographers are drawn to the local arts and crafts scene and make the most of Springbrooks lush landscapes, perfect to photograph, sketch or paint. With little light pollution Springbrook is a great location for star gazing on a clear night. And just down the road there's Springbrook Observatory, that offers night tours on the weekends. Keen cyclist will appreciate some of the best riding that the hinterland has to offer. Whether it's the challenging 8 km climb up Springbrook road, or the quiet country lanes, it's a unique experience.

The cottage is ideal for a couple seeking a quiet intimate getaway with all the facilities you need on your doorstep Park the car when you arrive and you won't need it till you leave! Families seeking a unique nature experience will appreciate the cottage, with lots of activities and adventure for the kids (there's even a skate park a short walk away) and plenty or relaxation for mum and dad. The cottage is also great for Birdwatchers, bush walkers and cyclists.

Dragonfly Cottage, Springbrook

Very cosy and comfortable retreat!

  • 5 of 5

Our family thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Dragonfly Cottage over the past few days. There were regular visits from a range of birds (king parrots, cockatoos etc.) along with evening visits from possums - our kids absolutely loved every minute of it. The owners clearly go above and beyond to make your stay comfortable, with a range of coffee and tea options, birdseed provided along with very cosy facilities. We will certainly be back!

Excellent property

  • 4 of 5

It was a very enjoyable stay. Two bonuses were the many birds we fed on the balcony and being so close to Purling brook falls and shops etc. The place was very clean and there was a high degree of attention to detail. It was disability friendly except for three steps down from the very steep driveway.

perfect retreat in a magical location

  • 4 of 5

What a wonderful peaceful retreat is Dragonfly Cottage. It rained all the first day but that made it special as we decided to stay on the lovely back deck overlooking the creek and forest. The decor was restful and perfect. The facilities better than many holiday places. The visiting birds and possums were a delight. It was so peaceful in fact that it was hard to leave the cottage and so we mostly stayed in except for one walk.

Delightful Cotage in a magnificnt rainforst settin

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Dragonfly Cottage for a long weekend in October. We had booked for a stay much earlier in the year but because of a deluge we had to cancel our trip up the mountain on the day we were suppose to arrive. When we contacted the owners (Peter and Wendy) it was no problem to fix another weekend.

The cottage is very comfortable and well equipped with all the facilities one might wish for. The water pump need o fixed as it is a little noisy The setting is magnificent. The cottage is clean and there is an abundance of indoor entertainment for the whole family. There is a huge balcony with large BBQ and gas heater. From sunrise to sunset a great variety of parrots, cockatoos and kookaburras sat on the veranda and a possum visited us at night time.

We thoroughly enjoyed the rainforest walks particularly the Twin Falls which takes some stamina to go down behind the falls and back up again of course but is fantastic.

We can really recommend this cottage for a wonderful and relaxed stay.
