King Valley Dreaming
Gazing out the panoramic window of an incredibly underrated rustic outdoor shower, we looked across expansive layered hills to spot the rocky cliffs of Mount Buffalo in the distance. The property is all but silent except for the twitter of native birds and that 'summer-is-coming' shrill of cicadas as the sun goes down. Add in the crackle of our wood-fired tub as its heating, and a few profound exhales to mark the sense of relief felt when you jump in. The views from this bath really don't get much better!
Scoring blue skies and hot days, we didn't need the cosy fire inside the yurt itself, but rather we awed at it's year-round suitability with the wool lined walls which kept us cool over our warm weekend. Bringing plenty of food meant we only had to wander for the sake of exploring and we spent hours lazing in the hammocks reconnecting with one another, before cooking up dinner on the campfire. The fairy lights twinkled beneath clear skies where we could spot shooting stars and later the moon through the glass dome of the yurt's ceiling.
The beauty of the King Valley sure did catch us by surprise. Dotted with picturesque wineries, breathtaking views and an incredible waterfall to boot - I know we'll be day dreaming of our return....
