'Going bush’ doesn’t have to mean going without. Lyrebird Cottage, tucked away in Yarrangobilly Valley within the remote northern section of Kosciuszko National Park, offers all the creature comforts of home with none of the distractions. This luxury eco-cottage, built in 2011, is a real find: intimate yet spacious, off a private road so away from the public eye, with two bedrooms sleeping four, and an extensive deck offering a picnic spot right on your doorstep.
Awaken to a chorus of lyrebirds and currawongs, or walk at night to glimpse possums and sugar gliders moving through the trees. You may be almost alone in terms of people, particularly in the evening, but the bush is bursting with wildlife.
The Yarrangobilly area is the perfect place for a romantic getaway, or even a holiday with friends and family. Take advantage of cottage facilities, relaxing with a book on the verandah over a long barbecue. There are plenty of easy walks close by, while the thermal pool offers a natural spa to soak away the tension. It's also a great base to strike out into the High Plains, Selwyn or Tumut areas of northern Kosciuszko.
