Wallaby Creek Cottage is a comfortable modern two bedroom cottage, set high in a private rural valley, overlooking national park and completely secluded and peaceful. It is fully self-contained with an equipped kitchen and open plan living and dining area, with solar and gas power. The cottage has a glass-front fireplace for heating and a verandah overlooking panoramic views of the valley.
The bedrooms are comfortably appointed, each with a queen size bed (plus one with a single), with full linen included. We can accommodate up to four people as two couples, or a couple and two singles. Each room looks out over the valley and mountains.
Our guests find the total peace and quiet and privacy of the cottage to be a luxury rare in our modern world. It is perfect for a romantic few days, a break from the hustle and bustle, a quiet honeymoon or anniversary, a special occasion, a writing retreat, some real family time, or just a connection with the natural world in relaxing comfort.
We are located in northern NSW, an easy two and a half hours drive from Brisbane or Byron Bay and two hours drive from Toowoomba.
Be Nourished, Relaxed, Inspired.
Things to do
The special thing about Wallaby Creek Cottage is that there isn't a "things to do" list. Just relax. Sit and and enjoy a drink and look at the view. Talk. Read. Relax. Sleep. Walk. Cook. Watch the flames in the fireplace, the kangaroos in the paddock, the cattle grazing, the creek flow over the rocks. Take in the complete peace and quiet.
You are welcome to walk over the 500 acres of the farm, explore the creek, go birdwatching, and even venture to some special places in the National Park.
Locally, it is a short drive to Tooloom National Park, World Heritage Rainforest, which has an excellent easy rainforest walk of about 30 minutes length. There is also Tooloom Falls, which is a good spot for a picnic, and Bean Creek Falls, which are impressive when the creeks are in full flow. At Paddy's Flat there is nice swimming in the Clarence River. There are local rock-climbing areas and aboriginal heritage sites.
Further afield are the local towns of Woodenbong by the border ranges and Killarney, with Queen Mary Falls on the plateau above Killarney. To the west is wine and fruit region of Stanthorpe and Tenterfield.
Still, you might like to just relax.
