The scenery and the wildlife

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
