Just what we were seeking; a peaceful relaxing place to unwind. Heard koalas & frogs overnight & spotted roos & wallabies during the day. The lagoon in front attracted so many types of birds. For people wanting peace & wildlife on their doorstep, not cafes. A really special place. Hosts were fantastic too!
Absolutely enjoyed every aspect of stay. Totally peaceful and relaxing and a wonderful get away. Would recommend to anyone who wanted a break from problems.
Relax with no neighbors.
We had a great time, the accomodation was exactly as described. Very private and relaxing. Surrounded by nature. Less than ten minutes drive to some nice beaches, cafes and country pubs.
Relaxing, peaceful escape from the hustle & bustle
The Bushland Retreat was an excellent way to get a break from everything. We enjoyed the peaceful, tranquil surrounds and the chorus of frogs at night. The roos, wallabies, koalas and native on our walks around the property were plentiful.

The cottage is on a farmland, well away from town. Lovely setting but probably not suitable for business travellers, or people who like to be close to amenities. Very quiet and surrounded by birds and kangaroos, so suitable for any age requiring that setting.
