About the property

Excellent for families who want to let the kids run free. Or simply relax in the peaceful surroundings.

Basic, no frills holiday cottage set amongst old gums and abundant wildlife - kangaroos, wallabies, wombats, possums and native birds.

Long winding driveway leads past eucalypts to the cottage nestled near a seasonal winter creek.

Pets are allowed (additional charge) - however the property is not fenced.

Bush experience without the tent!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at Wombat Forest Retreat three times now and each time brings new adventure. Great place to be at nature in what feels like a secluded location but still be within minutes to the closest town. The kids thoroughly enjoy staying here and will be back again as its a easy get away without all the luggage!!
