“Look No Further for an Idealic Setting, wonderful accommodation and hosts”
Reviewed 2 January 2011

Mother and daughter echo all the previous reviews, John and Robyn are excellent hosts, helpful, unintrusive and generous. They provided us with a lovely roast dinner one night and a very filling BBQ the next - best steak for ages. The ideal accommodation for exploring the surrounding diverse countryside, including Tamborine Mountain and Lamington National Park, convenient for visiting O'Reilleys and Binna Burra Lodges. Enjoy the free treetop walk and the numerous walking paths through rainforests, creeks, and eucalyptus forests. The birds and wildlife are amazing, not forgetting the wallabies on the lawn outside your accommodation. Get up early, get out and come back in time to enjoy the swimming pool and open air jacuzzi and watch the sun go down.

What a wonderful experience. Great Location, perfectly situated amongst all the surrounding tourist-y areas, yet secluded enough to feel as though your nowhere.

The room was just what we needed and more than we'd expected. Perfect for two...a roomy bed in a lovely decorated room, ensuite with spacious shower, seperate comfy lounge room with handy kitchenette...all topped off with a step out the side-door onto a verandah with the most amazing view out over the ridge and to the mountains. Wallaby's everywhere, and no-one else for miles. Peaceful, relaxing and private. There was even a pool and a beautiful elevated outdoor hot-tub.

The hosts were great, with Robyn seemingly willing to stop short of nothing in order to ensure a perfect stay- everything was just an (accommodating) request away. Oh, and boy can she cook up a storm! A wonderful modern vegetarian pasta, a Malaysian-style chicken satay, beautifully presented (and Tasty!) cheese platters...and enough breakfast supplied during our stay to feed an army!

The little things made the difference, yet there was never any fuss. A truly enjoyable stay!

Looking forward to a return visit :)

What can I say without repeating the previous reviews ... ?
My hubby and I stayed 3 nights and could not have wished for more.
John and Robyn perfect hosts. Nothing too much trouble.
Great location to use as a base - we ventured to Tamborine Mountain ...
lots of beautiful walks, very peaceful and scenic.
Packed picnic lunch on the day we visited O'Reillys National Park - did the tree top walk (free) and marvelled at the beautiful bird life.
Any info on the area can be provided by Robyn and John.
ENJOY !!

Wallaby Ridge did not disappoint. Accommodation was very comfortable and was perfect for our needs. Robyn and her husband was very accommodating hosts. Would definitely recommend a visit!

Hats off to John and Robyn for this fantastic little peice of luxury.

We were greeted to Wallaby Lodge by a couple of wallabies guiding us up the long drive way. once we reached the buliding we were met with a beautiful garden and a view to die for!!
Our rooms were nothing short of perfect, with all the mod cons needed to escape from the world, all that was left was to sit and relax (dispite having the whole family running around).

we were also served some beautiful woodfire cooked pizzas, all made by the ever talented john and robyn, (who were very understanding with a very over excited one year old running all over the place!) which we gobbled down very quickly!

day two was wedding day, and as i woke to the most fantastic view i have seen in a very long time all hell was braking loose the guys pulled out the stops again and seerved us a very tasty pancake breakfast. then the hair-dressers, nail techs and make up girls took control of the main living area, and john and robyn very kindly assisted any way possible.

we had a lovely time staying here, its a shame it wasnt for longer. we WILL be back.

My husband and I have just returned from a lovely weekend away at the Wallaby Ridge Retreat. I stumbled upon its review here on trip advisor, and am delighted to say it is every bit as charming as the previous guests have posted.
The accommodation was very well thought out, the view each of the guests have overlooking the vineyard was perfect.
From the moment I made contact with Robyn she has been eager to help in any way possible, and the meal she served us on the Friday was first class!
On the Sat, I organised Ripples massage company to come to the lodge to help ease the working stress from hubby (though I got to indulge as well!), from there we headed out to O"Reillys vineyard for a pre-booked picnic and some wine tasting, then onto the look out. Later we headed out to the local pub for pizza in the evening (you may need to book ahead - it's very popular).
Unfortunately for us, it was one of the wettest weekends this year - but the point of the weekend was to relax and we certainly did that.
We will be back to experience the place at it's full glory with better weather!

I stumbled across Wallaby Ridge Retreat by accident, being locals, my partner and I wanted a bit of a tree change getaway so we booked with the lovely Robyn for a long weekend. From the initial emails, Robyn was so accommodating, first giving us a price that outstripped the others we spoke to, then the extras! The breakfast basket with delicious home-made bread, the champagne and lindt choccies, and a sumptious 3 course dinner that was to die for. She also let us add on a delicious fruit and cheese platter, and when we wandered up from the heated spa in search of more champagne, she simply passed us another bottle!! The rooms (theres only 3) are beautifully equipped with flat screen tv, sound system, huge comfy bed and mini kitchen with everything. They also have chickens (which they let me pat!) I've already aimed up another weekend to take my mum. Thankyou guys!!!
