We really had a fabulous stay. The breakfast was yummy, the spa wonderful, the room and main lounge were so well presented. We loved going into this area at night as the fire was always on and surrounds so comfortable. The hosts were delightful. Nothing was too much trouble. We can’t wait to get back for another holiday.

Thank you for your review. We always listen to feedback, so we are sorry you didn't appreciate the décor. I am sure our Eco Villas would have impressed you with their modern look if the vintage traditional suites didn't appeal to you. Every suite and villa is different but all are very comfortable and quiet. Weekends book out quickly so advance notice ensures guests get the room they want. Apart from that, glad the mountain views and generous breakfast basket ticked the boxes. Hope to see you again to try the alternative.

Hi Laura, Thanks for your review, looks like the weather looked after you as well. Autumn is such a beautiful time of year, by the time late May is here we have lots of Autumn colour and the gorgeous blues of the mountains with the crisp mornings are a treat! Hope to see you again some day soon. Best wishes Robyn and John

Beautiful environment

Excellent couples' retreat, very clean and comfortable with spectacular views. Lovely private feeling as there are only 3 units on the property. Robyn made us feel very welcome and the breakfast supplies were generous. Watched the sunset from the spa on both nights while having a glass of bubbles Wallabies are also regular visitors and one had a tiny joey for us to admire. Highly recommended. Brenda

Hi Brenda, thanks for taking the time to review your break with us. We are happy you and Tom enjoyed your couples escape with us. Life doesn't seem to slow down, so it is important to have a break where nature can work its magic. There's something about a sunset isnt there? We hope you take some time out again soon and maybe try one of our 2 secluded cottages looking into the forest. Thanks again Robyn and John.

Bush retreat

Pros: Everything
Cons: Nothing
Location: The town of Canunga has a Bakery & good store for all your needs. We ate at the hotel one night & the food was fabulous.
Our 4 day stay at Wallaby Ridge Retreat was so peaceful after visiting with our young grandchildren each day in Brisbane. Our hosts Robyn & John were very welcoming and Robyn showed us all the wonderful facilities available to us. The cottage was exceptionally clean & the bed was soooo comfortable. I would recommend WRR to anyone wanting a few days relaxation surrounded by beautiful countryside & lots of wineries. Canunga is also anice little town nearby.

Thanks Lynette for your kind review. We enjoy sharing this part of the world with visitors and your positive feedback about our cottages is most appreciated. Peace and quiet but scratch the surface and there is, in fact, plenty to enjoy in the area. Hope to see you again soon, best wishes,

Wallabies in the backyard! Beautiful vineyard view

Wallabies literally graze all over the grounds here, coming right up to the door! Beautiful location in the mountains, with a view of a little vineyard and serene bushland. Host was pleasant and easy to deal with. :) 10/10 would recommend.
