About Dianne Mcilveen
My husband and I are active retirees who spend our time living at our beachfront apartment on the Gold Coast or at our Springbrook mountain cottage retreat. By doing so we enjoy the benefits of both amazing lifestyles.
Why Dianne Mcilveen chose Springbrook
We bought our cottage some years ago when looking for a property to buy in Springbrook. When we saw its character and location we fell in love with it. Although at the time it had been somewhat neglected, we could see the potential of what it had to offer. The garden, with its babbling brook, was unique but needed bringing to life. The timber lined cottage had such a sweet and quaint character but needed some TLC as well. We have enjoyed immensely bringing this special place to life.
What makes this Cottage unique
FernyBrook Cottage quietly and privately sits right next to Purlingbrook Picnick area and Falls. It is so conveniently located but enjoys the privacy of its beautiful garden which slopes down to the prettiest little creek, with its arched hand-made, timber bridge. The garden is a bird watchers delight and the cottage, with its fireplace and charm, makes you feel like you are somewhere special.

Wonderful relaxing piece of paradise
If you are looking for an ideal little cottage in a nature paradise, right next to lots of forest walks, then this is for you.
We enjoyed a wonderful 4 days re-charging our batteries from city life and enjoying nature.
The cottage is a real pleasure with lots of nice touches including a log fire.

Cosy, well kept cottage. Close to coffee shop and walking tracks. Excellent week!
Brilliant place to stay
Absolutely loved staying here, everything in the description was accurate and the place had a lovely homely feel. Will most certainly stay here again.
Relaxing and amazing location
Dianne is a fantastic host and the cottage is perfect for a relaxing and peaceful getaway. There are so many different walks to enjoy straight out the front door, you never have to be bored. Alternatively it's ideal to curl up in front of the fireplace with a book or a movie.
A very homely little cottage. Beautifully landscaped property, leading to a little wooden bridge over the creek. Close to cafes and bush walks. Thoroughly enjoyed our weekend escape.
Beautiful property, wonderful stay!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at FernyBrook Cottage. All the comforts of home, close to walks and cafes and set amidst a beautiful garden with its own natural stream and little water fall. Just perfect for us.
FernyBrook Cottage is located near to Purlingbrook Falls, which is the most spectacular waterfall in Springbrook World Heritage Rainforest National Park. The main attractions included rainforest hiking along the many scenic paths, wildlife and bird watching, cascading waterfalls and spectacular cliff top views to the Gold Coast from the numerous lookouts. The area is a nature lovers paradise and it is only an hours drive from the beautiful beaches and attractions of the world renown Gold Coast in Queensland, Australia
