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 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.
