Located at Banksia Point, The Residence offers a cosy weekend retreat and a place to recharge. There’s plenty of room in this fully-furnished cottage, making it an ideal accommodation option for a family holiday or a group looking for a base to explore.

You could easily gaze out the large windows all day, admiring the leafy green forest outlook, yet there are spectacular lookouts and the magnificent World Heritage Gondwana rainforests right on your doorstep to discover.

Pack a picnic and head off on Wrights lookout walking track to experience the views from the open rocky plateau. In spring, you’ll also be treated to colourful displays of wildflowers in bloom.

After a peaceful night’s sleep, wake the kids for a sunrise experience they won’t forget. Looking out over the mist-covered wilderness at Point lookout, there’s no better way to start a new day.
