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.
Observe resident, 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 birds (over 110 identified). The native garden and natural bushland hide many delightful treasures. We currently have one hand-raised wallaby who visits occasionally for a hand-feed.
Explore the 160 acre property bounded by Reedy Creek - several slashed tracks; go bush-walking around the beautiful Mt Byron valley and visit secluded Diana's Bath.
Toast marshmallows around the fire, listening to 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 delight in the “Children’s Garden”.
