Standing on the porch, you watch eastern grey kangaroos and emus feed on a wide scenic plain at dusk – nature is, quite literally, right on your doorstep. Lavender Vale Cottage and the neighbouring Lavender Vale Homestead are perfectly positioned to help you get the most out of a visit to Kwiambal National Park, whether you’ve come for wildlife, Macintyre Falls, or simply to stroll through white cypress pines and ironbarks on a pleasant day walk.

Just three kilometres away, Macintyre Falls lookout is the best place to head for hiking, fishing, and swimming opportunities. But Lavender Vale Cottage offers enough comforts to make you want to linger with a book on the shaded verandah, or fire up the barbecue for a family picnic on a Sunday afternoon.

Lavender Vale Cottage is spacious, sleeping six comfortably (with enough room for nine), and it features a well-equipped kitchen suitable for larger groups. Air-conditioning makes it perfect for summer, too: strike out into the bush in the early morning, then retreat to cool comfort during the hottest hours of the day.

Conservation program:

Wild dog control program

Wild dogs can have significant impacts on other animals and are regarded as pests. Our wild dog control program operates in many NSW national parks and reserves. When carrying out such pest control, we aim to minimise the wild dogs’ effects on livestock and wildlife, while still maintaining dingo conservation in key areas.
