Sadly pets cannot be hosted. It is asked that you do not feed the animals, and do not walk around the property unless accompanied by the owner.
There is a four bedroom brick house, 3 bedrooms of which are to rent. so ore than one booking can be accommodated at one (URL HIDDEN) bedroom could accommodate a couple of kids on collapsible beds if wished. There is one bathroom with a shower and toilet, and a separate toilet. There is pot bellied stove, large but cluttered kitchen freezers, large stove fridge, microwave, coffee machine. There outside fire cooking limited by fire bans, there is no barb b cue, this is the old fashioned way. There is plenty of hot water, and unless a drought hits, plenty of tank fresh water to the house. However water is always to be treated with respect. It is not a suitable B and B for cat allergic people.
Access is through one of the outside doors, the small bedroom has its own access , the other is through the hall and house entrance. The drive up the lane from the road to the house is half a km, and needs to be at 10 km/hour to avoid animals, kangaroos and hares, dogs, cat,and deer, and cattle. Shooting is not permitted.

Some help is available, however I'm busy most of the time so this is limited to advice as where to obtain services. There is space to put a caravan with separate power on the outside of the house, and a repair shed with a bitumen apron, benches and power points which caravaners seem to like.

If I am not home, the front gate is locked. When booking in this can be important. If you turn up early, there is no access. Guests are given a house key, and a front gate key which are returned on finally leaving. The dawn chorus of the birds is loud, the bush is not as quiet as many expect although car noise is minimal. In summer the cicadas are also often loud.
This is a quiet place for relaxation, for safety reasons drunkedness and substance abuse are not permitted. Smoking is not permitted, or are pets.
Check in and out times are negotiable, however they must be prearranged. This is a working establishment, and prior commitments take priority.
I am a mature lady with several university degrees who lives quietly on a small farm I live an ordinary life with my stud cattle, dog cat and chickens, tree farm, wild life and insects in Queensland. I run a small holistic veterinary practice , and work from this farm so I tend to be quite busy, I have children and grandchildren who are sources of great joy and entertainment, I believe in the skill of being ordinary. I also believe in breakfast so it is a three course meal. You cannot do a days work or drive long distance without a good meal, ordinary common sense.. ph
