About the property

Southern Forest Cottage (sleeps up to six guests)

is a self-contained two bedroom Celery Top Pine timber cottage in a peaceful forest setting. It is suitable for couples, or families and friends travelling together. It features a large deck, open plan living and a well equipped kitchen. We can accommodate six guests in two bedrooms (1 room with a queensize bed and 1 room with a queensize and a bunk bed). Fresh breakfast ingredients are provided. There is one bathroom. The forest and native garden setting provides home for many birds, lizards, pademelons and other wildlife and ensures privacy in a relaxing environment. Please note: no TV reception, limited mobile coverage (only Optus) and only slow Wifi. If you'd like to get away from it all, this is the place for you.


The surrouding area of Southport offers fantastic scenery with great views of Adamsons Peak and the Southwest Ranges. We are close to Hastings Caves and Thermal Pool. The Ida Bay railway takes you on a trip through bushland to the beautiful beach of Deep Hole. From there you can hike to the Southport Lagoon Conservation area. A trip to historic Recherche Bay and Cockle Creek rewards nature lovers. At the end of the road begins the Southcoast Track into the Wilderness. The 4 hr return day walk to South Cape Bay is a highlight.

Absolutely perfect place for us and our little kids to stay. It rained the whole weekend and yet we loved being in a little private Cottage surrounded by the forest and animals.

- perfectly clean! (Thanks for proper wash clothes in kitchen)

- beautiful breakfast provisions, loved your fresh baked bread

- great layout, furniture and decorations

- fab puzzles, games & books

- loved not having mobile reception!

- walk to pub with great steak

- warm and beautiful

Beautiful cottage

  • 5 of 5

Cottage was very clean. Kitchen was very well equipped and a generous breakfast of bread,eggs,milk, butter, jam, cereal ,fruit and juice was left in the cottage. Lots of games,toys and DVDs for the children. Beautiful garden with pademelons to watch. Very close to Hastings caves and convenient base for the air walk, Hartz mountain and national park. Very comfortable and we would stay here again.

Beautiful little cottage. Owners are more than welcoming, fresh homemade bread on arrival and everything we needed was provided. The cottage was very clean, warm and cosy. Lots of games and DVDs to keep us occupied. Wild animals at your doorstep. Just amazing, can't wait to go back and stay there again!
