About the property

An affordable, peaceful paradise which is only a short drive from the main vineyards and all that the Hunter Valley has to offer.

Want a change of pace? Wallaby Cottage is the ideal getaway if you are looking for a quiet place in the country to spend time with family or friends. It is an affordable, peaceful paradise in a stunning location and only a short drive to all that the Hunter Valley has to offer.

Set on 35 acres of farmland, Wallaby Cottage is marvellous in summer and is a brilliant spot for a winter weekend where you can be cosy by the warmth of a wood fire. Verandas all around provide an excellent place to light up the barbecue. Here you can enjoy a long afternoon of well-spent, country house time as kookaburras laugh up in the trees and you sit back and appreciate the view of the horses and kangaroos as they leisurely graze in the paddocks.

Soak up the country life watching the free range chickens and guinea fowl as well as cattle and horses. See kangaroos at dawn and dusk and enjoy the wild birds, including king parrots, galahs and kookaburras. Lucky guests can watch the wedge-tailed eagles spiralling above the picturesque paddocks and over the tree covered hills.

For a memorable experience of country life at its best, to attend the concerts in the vineyards, enjoy the wineries, ballooning, the fine restaurants and everything else the Hunter has to offer, Wallaby Cottage is the place to stay.

All this and only 50 minutes from Newcastle and 90 minutes from Sydney.


Wallaby Cottage is a self-contained house with three bedrooms and an open plan lounge, dining, kitchen area which can comfortably accommodate up to 8 guests. There are 3 king-sized double beds, which can be converted to twin share if needed, and a double sofa bed. The kitchen is fully equipped and the cottage has a TV, DVD, a CD player with an iPod dock and free Wi-Fi.

Tea and coffee, linen and towels are provided for your stay.

A shuttle bus for concerts picks up from nearby.

Additional Guests

For a group larger than 8, Red Belly farm has additional accommodation for 2 in the neighbouring Wedge-tail Loft.

Bring your pets - Wallaby Cottage is pet friendly.

Our host Lynette made sure that our family had a lovely weekend, feeding the animals and giving us lots of information on the fauna and flora in the area. Would highly recommend.

Great family friendly country getaway

  • 5 of 5

This weekend getaway was a breath of fresh air. Beautiful views of valley, mountains, sunrises, sunsets, misty autumn mornings, green paddocks, birdlife, wild life, and the classic wooden farm fences.

The fenced yard around the cottage made our stay with a toddler and pre-schooler very easy. The cottage was charming and user friendly and the king size beds were very comfy. I can imagine very cozy winter mornings given the wood stove in the living area.

Fresh eggs from the chicken coup made breakfast complete as we sat around the farmhouse style table watching the sun rise through the window.

The horses and alpacas graze free range, and the chickens loved our food scraps from the cottage kitchen food scrap bin.

A very peaceful relaxing stay. What a good find.

A great escape

  • 4 of 5

Wallaby Cottage is peaceful & adequately furnished. It is a 7 minute drive along Wallaby Gully Road but beware when driving at night as it can be pretty dark. It is around 20 minutes into Cessnock & central Hunter Valley.
