Close to all of nature's beauty
Barrington Tops is our backdoor neighbour; no need to drive your car to go bush walking. Walking tracks are marked from the house; you walk into the National Park and State Forest then into the Barrington Tops. Relax on the verandah overlooking Jerusalem Creek next to the waterfall watching the animals/birds or picnic on the rocks. In summer you can lie under the cool waters of the falls or bask in one of the many clear cool pools. Spend the evenings with the waterfall flood-lit listening to the frog sonata or keep the lights off and view the millions of stars. Feed provided for the king/mountain parrots and other birds, chooks (collect the eggs) the cows are grateful for any left over bread. The property is suitable to bring your horses, ride into the National Park and Forest on bush tracks with no cars; we have cattle yards and small paddocks to house the horses.

All the ways to relax
What away to go
Alfresco dining on the verandah overlooking Gully Falls House's private waterfalls, an idyllic setting for sitting in one of the hanging canvas chairs. In the warm afternoon sun in winter watching the native animals and birds or cows and calves feeding on the grass in the adjacent paddocks just relax with not a care in the world. In the summer months relaxing with a book in the cool breeze or at night flood light the waterfall for a romantic dinner with the sounds of the cascading water, night birds, frogs and all the stars you can imagine.
What a way to relax sitting outside on a lovely night with the warm fire glowing, the surrounding wall to stop the cold and reflect the heat, toasting marshmallows, your favourite drink, turn off all the outside lights and view the millions of stars with friends, family or just the two of you. A camp oven is provided with instruction so bring a leg of lamb, beef or chicken and vegetables are you will have a mouth watering meal and a lot of fun.
The spa room has 3 walls of louvered glass for your comfort and not to block any of the views of the surrounding bush, birds, wildlife and water falls. At night flood light the water falls, use one of the soft lighting systems available in the room and listen to the night sounds. There is also a heater for cold weather and robes for your comfort. The room has privacy curtains for larger groups. The room can also be used as extra showings and baths.
