Just getting to Possum Valley makes you realise this is the real deal in terms of genuine first growth rain forests experiences. This is 120 acres nestled in a valley surrounded by national park.
Amazing and for a true return to life as it once...More

Thanks Ron. You get it. I like kids running wild and there is enough space they don't get up the nose of guests in the other cottage. For many kids this is a chance for them to explore on their own as their parents realise...More
Our 5th stay at Possum Valley. Blackbean cottage is very rustic and comfortable but the pillows, sheets, towels, doona covers have seen better days and need replacing. Other than that its an awesome place to sit back and relax. The walks in the rainforest are...More

Hey Mick, I take exception to your accusation of "ridiculously low cost". I prefer to characterize it as modest cost. I think we all in the wealthy countries have to suck our heads in with regard to cost and consumption to keep the planet livable....More
