Park undercover and enter off the decking, you will have access to this entire property to explore and relax in. A stunning natural swimming hole with waterfalls await and a second billabong with multiple waterfalls sets the scene beautifully. Native plants are the stars of this garden but you will also find a plentiful veggie patch for you to use when in season.
The forest surrounding Billabong Falls is made up of towering Mountain ash - some of the tallest flowering plant in the world.
You will at times see wallabies bounding through the landscape and kookaburras diving in the natural swimming hole from the trees above. The landscape is truly energising, it is a perfect patch of paradise.

Mid week stays - We run a landscape design studio from another building on the same property. The office sits behind the house and the blinds will be drawn so the garden and pool will be private for the guests. The driveway is shared with people going to the landscape design studio but the carport is reserved for guests of Billabong Falls.
The house looks out to the forest and garden/pool and the bedroom windows have 1 way glass.
Check-out during a week day is 10am (neg), weekend check-out can be later please check times when booking.
