Brackens Cottage is a rustic cottage set on a grassy flat, surrounded by tall open forest with the picturesque Norfolk Island Creek nearby. Rest your weary head for a night, or make Brackens Cottage your base for a few days to explore everything that Coolah Tops has to offer.

Spend your days enjoying the nearby walking tracks, mountain bike trails and spectacular lookouts. Then at night, wind down beside the warm open fireplace. Wander outside to observe the star-speckled night sky. Grab your torch or spotlight and you might spot a greater glider drifting between the trees. Wake up to a delicious campfire brekkie and a hot cuppa. Take your time and relax at the picnic table, watching the bush come to life as you prepare for another day of adventure in the Aussie bush.
