Our trip to Billabong Falls exceeded all expectations! From the moment we walked in I knew we had made the right decision, with the smell of freshly baked bread wafting through the living area and kitchen...The views are even better than advertised, with the changing light offering a new perspective of the mountain ash trees every moment of the day. Sarah our host thought of absolutely everything, with champagne, fresh fruit, chocolate and even some home made jam all there for our arrival! Her recommendations were spot on and we thoroughly enjoyed every moment of our stay. Our only regret is that we didn't book for longer but luckily we won't make the same mistake next time we book, which won't be far away!...

Amazing property and experience. From the moment we walked in to Billabong Falls we absolutely loved everything about it. The attention to detail was obvious from the start: the smell of fresh bread which had just finished baking + fresh milk and eggs in the fridge + local wine on the bench + a full bowl of fresh fruit on the bench + ambiant music playing softly. So so welcoming. As a family we enjoyed countless hours in the waterfall and pond which surrounds the house. Our host Sarah was incredibly generous with her recommendations on where the best places to eat locally were, as this perhaps the most important things for us when travelling somewhere new. We will be back....
