Management response:

It was good to have you stay at our cottage and great that you enjoyed the peacefulness of the bush. We now have a 'resident' lyrebird which comes to fossick in the back garden each day. The rosellas and king parrots keep visitors entertained, while the kookaburras act as 'alarm clocks, in the early morning.
