About Larissa Carrus

I love nature photography, bush walking, going to the beach, camping, kayaking, gardening and growing my own fruit and vegetables. Travelling to new places and meeting new people. I love to share this part of the world with people, and let them experience what it's like to live in harmony with nature. I believe life was meant to be simple and I like to remind people that we are a part of nature and by taking care of it in turn we are taking care of ourselves.

Larissa Carrus purchased this house in 2008

Why Larissa Carrus chose Wongawallan

This is a place where you can leave all your worries behind. It's a place that re-energizes and rejuvenates the mind, body and soul. Set amongst pristine nature, wake to nothing but the sounds of birds singing. Get high on the fresh mountain air while enjoying the magnificent views from the large timber deck. Take a stroll through the lush gardens and pick yourself some fresh seasonal fruit for breakfast while you greet the local wildlife. Kookaburra's, Wallabies, King Parrots, Koala's, Rosella's, Rainbow Lorikeets and Wedge Tail Eagles are all at home here. You will leave here feeling reconnected to your purpose and inspired to live a healthier, happier and more fulfilled life.

What makes this house unique

Fantastic Girls Weekend Away!!

  • 5 of 5

What a fabulous property this is! We had such a fabulous time at this great house in an amazing location. It was so peaceful and relaxing sitting on the spacious,comfy verandah of an afternoon/night watching the sun set over the mountains.

We were visited by a kangaroo and several birds and really appreciated being in such a natural, beautiful environment.

Plenty of room for the 7 of us, and everything you need for cooking.

Not too far away is Mt.Tambourine, where we went for a 1hr walk on the Witches Track, followed by a stroll through the village and a beer at the brewery which had live music.

We enjoyed Larissa's property so much we will be making this an annual event.
