Additional information

It's a little outside the town - only about 500m - but the setting is such that you can barely see the road or any other houses(there's only one neighbour, down the hill

The house is very modern and open plan. The columns on the ground floor are tree trunks.

The town itself is small - maybe 100 house. It has one really good restaurant and a pub. The pub dates from the gold rush era, is still very original and has good low priced meals and beer (beer fans: try the Abbottsford Stout)

There is a large cozy wood stove and plenty of wood for Winter (it gets quite cold in winter overnight)

Split cycle air conditioner for hot Summer days

Expect colorful parrots, cockatoos, laughing kookaburras every day (we leave bird seed for you to feed them if you want

Families of kangaroos are regular visitors (don't worry - kangaroos are very timid and will hop away if you step out the door)

No TV or mobile phone coverage because of it's setting in a valley.
