RETREAT COTTAGE

Wallaby Creek Retreat cottage is a comfortable two bedroom house set privately in the grazing pastures on our farm. The two rooms are light and airy looking over the valley, 1 queen room and 1 queen and single. Open verandas allow views over the pastures and valley.

Cottage

The cottage has a full kitchen, with gas stove and fridge, gas hot water, open plan dining and a comfortable lounge in front of the wood fire heater. Linen and firewood included.

Wallaby Creek is a 500 acre working grazing property run by a family committed to sustainable farming. We’ve chosen this beautiful private valley to raise our children and farm animals, to live and breathe family farming.

We are located in Northern Rivers NSW, two and a half hours drive from Brisbane, Gold Coast or Byron Bay.

Wallaby Creek Retreat Cottage is perfect for nature lovers, bush walkers, bird watchers, star gazers and . . . silence seekers.

Our guests find the total peace and quiet and privacy of the cottage to be a luxury rare in our modern world. It is perfect for a romantic few days, a break from the hustle and bustle, space for the kids to run unfettered, a quiet honeymoon or anniversary, a special occasion, a writing retreat, some real family time, or just a connection with the natural world in easy comfort.

We’re sharing the Hands of our “Head Heart and Hands” life here at Wallaby Creek, with a range of Hands-on activities especially designed for children and adults to get involved, learn new skills and take home some special experiences. We offer a range of workshops in blacksmithing, bread making, bush exploring, horse riding and farmyard experiences.

These workshops are personally tailored to suit participants and are designed to give today’s kids (and adults) real world experience of old-timer skills, farming life and natural simple living.

There really is the option of doing very little at all. A bit of cooking, a cup of tea, a cold beer, sit around the fireplace, watch the wallabies, read a book, sleep in, relax, watch the moon rise . . . On the farm you can sit by the creek, go swimming, have an outdoor fire, visit milking cows and farm animals, go bushwalking further afield or just stay, truly undisturbed, at the cottage. Have a look at our Hands-on page!

Families are welcome to arrange to visit to the farm yard in the morning, to watch cow milking, duck feeding and any other action in the menagerie.

Things to do for the more adventurous: Rock climbing in Urbenville: Urbenville has some great places for rock climbers, have a look at Rock Climbing

Locally, within ten minute’s drive there’s Tooloom Falls and Tooloom National Park and Lookout, great short trips out.

A good half day trip is to Queen Mary Falls, near Killarney in Qld, or further on to the rest of Main Range National Park. Queen Mary Falls is about 40 minutes drive from Wallaby Creek and has a great short circuit track to the bottom of the falls with beautiful forest, also good picnic facilities and a kiosk.

Border Ranges National Park, in NSW to the east of Wallaby Creek, has lots of good short walks to chose from and some magnificent forests.

To the west, for a day trip, there’s Boonoo Boonoo National Park with good swimming holes and Bald Rock National Park for a fantastic short rock climb

Then there’s local towns Kyogle to the south-east, with easy relaxed shopping and lots of cafes and Stanthorpe to the north-west with great local wineries and other attractions.

But really, don’t forget to just take some time and relax . . .
