There are lots of birds and other wildlife around to keep you amused all day.
Victoria's Riflebird, Eastern Spinebill, Macleay's Honeyeater, Bridled Honeyeater, Lewin's Honeyeater, Wompoo Fruit Dove, Emerald Dove, Brush Turkeys, Spotted Catbird, Musky Rat Kangaroo, and Pademelon to name a few.
Great friendly hosts that supply everything for the time there. Even a glass of port to round off the evening very nicely.
Cottages have a private setting in the Rainforest, yet, only a 15 minute drive to Yungaburra to see platypus, restaurants and shops. Substantial breakfast provisions were provided and a Weber for a good BBQ experience.
Now to find the time to come up from Sydney to visit again.
Top Tip :bring a banana and slice it in 2cm slices, so the birds have to eat it in front of you, otherwise they can fly away with it. We saw the Musky Rat Kangaroo wondering around with a piece of banana about 10 minutes after picking it up from a bird that dropped it.
