Koala Cottage at Fern Gulley Retreat

Property type house
Minimum Stay 1 - 2 nights


About the property

Accredited Tourism Award winner Fern Gulley Retreat is located on one of the state's most picturesque and pristine scenic tourism drives (route 251) following the Blackwood River as it meanders it's way from Balingup to Nannup surrounded by rolling hills, C.A.L.M. and natural forest - yet within easy reach of most coastal and tall karri forests tourist destinations.

Koala Cottage is a two bedroom - two bathroom cottage situated in a secluded spot of Fern Gulley Retreat overlooking the Blackwood River and dwarfed in the shadows of the tall timber with its birdlife, in its own tranquil corner of the retreat. It shares the retreats property with two other one bedroom cottages and one other two bedroom cottage, all overlooking the Blackwood River which you can view on our website. Perfect for couples or singles, you can gaze out from the floor to ceiling sliding doors directly into the towering gums and leafy forest canopy, shrouded by mist in the winter or in the summer open the wide doors and listen to the breeze moving in the valley where one can watch and feed the native birds and animals. We do not update the bookings availability on this site as we currently maintain another but for enquiries contact the owner directly whose details are provided in the Koala Cottage site,

What a beautiful place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

We could not have enjoyed our stay at Koala Cottage more! We have a lovely new home in Perth which we are usually itching to get back to after a few days away, but I have to say - we found ourselves wishing we could stay an extra couple of nights at the cottage.

Highlights? There are too many to mention, but below are a few that spring to mind.....

Sitting in the spa at night (with the lights off) listening to all manner of creatures in the trees surrounding the cottage (the cottage is elevated, bringing you to eye-level with the abundant birdlife). Waking up to cheeky little Blue Wrens hopping around the deck in the early morning light. Snuggling into the clean and comfortable king sized bed and watching all the activity in the forest outside our bedroom window. Feeling very much at home - with every thoughtful measure considered by the owners to make the cottage feel like 'home'. Just the two of us enjoying an evening barbecue on the deck. Watching a couple of high quality (free) in-house movies while snuggled up on the couch eating some unbelievably large strawberries (with double cream!) we bought in Nannup.

We cannot wait to go back and do it all again......

Loved it

  • 5 of 5

We were greeted on arrival from the manager, who showed us where everything was.

We really enjoyed it. It was so peaceful and very relaxing. the facilities were great. We enjoyed the animals, the pool, spa,and the visiting birds. We even had some blue wrens come down on the balcony and eat some crumbs.

The in-house movies were great. We had a very relaxing Christmas on our own for a change. There wasn't any mob phone reception unless you went into Nannup town, but that was good to not have that for a few days peace.

We would love to come back sometime in the future
