Digital Detox

There's no better way to clear the mind than a road trip out of the city and into the country. Our little escape to this cosy cabin was just what we needed. It gave us an opportunity to reset and really enjoy each others company. There was no reception nor wifi, just the sounds of the wildlife and the smell of fresh country air, it was like an oasis in the bush.

The cabin felt homely as soon as we stepped foot inside, and as an extra touch Amanda & Gavin had kindly left us their special home-made brownies to enjoy later in the evening.

The area was booming with wildlife, and things to keep you occupied. Just a short walk away was a very well-groomed tennis court (racket and balls provided), and just behind was a pool perfect for a summers day.

There are walks all around that you can take and Amanda & Gavin had provided us with recommendations on arrival.

The whole experience was unreal and to top it off, the stars at night are next level.. Looking forward to coming back here again very soon.

Things We Did

  • Forest
  • Starry sky
  • Walk
Just before the tennis court stands one very impressive 100+ year old tree...
Sit (or lay) by the pond and watch the stars pass on by. The sky is incredibly clear and the milky way is visible to the naked eye. Be sure to have a camera on you!...

    Just 40 minutes from the property lies this magnificent national park. Marvel at the trees that tower you or take one of the many walks on offer....
