French doors lead you on to the large deck. This is the ideal place to watch the sun set, the kids playing in the fort or to gather around the BBQ.

If the BBQ is not your style, the kitchen is well equipped, not only with the usual appliances but also a great view. So just arrive and relax.

About Nigel & Elaine

I own Tara with my husband Nigel and 2 children. We regularly spend time there to get away from the noise and craziness of city life.

Nigel & Elaine purchased this cottage in 2008

Why Nigel & Elaine chose Mount Victoria

My husband and I purchased Tara in 2008 as we love bushwalking in the Blue Mountains. Our kids love the bush setting with the wallabies and birds. Most of all they enjoy the playfort and the swings.

What makes this cottage unique

We were drawn to Tara because of its quiet setting and views across the Kanimbla valley. We never tire of looking out and seeing the sun setting over the bush and the cliffs.

Lovely Property

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Tara. The kitchen was beautifully equipped but not cluttered. The heating worked a treat when required. And the fact that we had various bushwalks at our door, got us outside to enjoy the surroundings. We were really very happy here.

Comfortable and Child Friendly

  • 5 of 5

Our multi generation long weekend at Tara was had something for everyone. It was warm with a well equipped kitchen and extremely child friendly. Our two and five year olds loved the toys and the playground. Mt Victoria doesn't have much in the way of amenities but we took most of our provisions with a quick trip to Blackheath to the growers market and the bakery all that was required. The owners were very responsive and helpful and overall it was a thoroughly enjoyable stay.

Great house!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in Tara. The kids loved the playground while we sat by the fire pit drinking red wine. Beautiful house and well kept. We had kangaroos in the backyard every day too. Would definately stay here again.
