Relax…… Observe…… Explore…… Enjoy... A real Country Retreat and Koala Sanctuary
Relax in the garden rotunda at sunset – magic! Wander around our Australian native garden, resting a while on a log seat to listen to the birds – calming. The Hollow Log is a real country retreat with secluded garden spaces and peaceful mountain views for your complete relaxation. The freedom from mobile phone service and TV reception provides opportunity for a true digital detox.
Search for wild koalas in the garden trees; spot a wallaby or our nightly visitors, the rufous bettongs, bandicoots, possums or brush-tailed phascogales; listen to the calls of our native frogs (15 different species) or the myriad of birds (over 110 identified). The native garden and natural bushland hide many delightful treasures. Hand-raised wallabies visit daily
Explore the 160 acre property bounded by Reedy Creek - several slashed tracks - or take other bush walks in the district
Currrently horses (including 6 brumbies in training), hens and cows. Collect fresh eggs and pick fresh herbs from the garden. Enjoy a gentle farm-stay experience in this unique, natural setting
Huddle around the fire in our spacious living area or venture outside to enjoy nature. Listen for the grunt of a nearby koala, a roaring deer stag, or a lone dingo’s howl; take a spot-light stroll around the garden to view the ‘night life’; join the children in a ball game on the lawn or relax in the rotunda while the children explore the “Children’s Garden”.
