For the animal lovers, we have many native species that live here. The birdfeeders and bird baths at your Chalet attract Pink & Grey Galahs, 28 Parrots, Kookaburras, Rosellas, Red Cap Parrots, Top Notch Doves, Magpies, several varieties of Ducks and in mating season the beautiful Blue Wren and Red Breasted Robin.
The rare Black Cockatoo is also seen around from time to time. Kangaroo families also often graze around the Chalets, and are best seen at sunrise and sunset when they come out to feed. We have a few farm animals to say hello to on your wanderings.
Inspiring Views and Natural Scenery
.Misty mornings abound in winter, magnificent sunrises and sunsets, and the stars at night will blow you away.
Cloud Nine Bush Walk: 7 acres of pristine virgin bush at the rear of our property. It is simply spectacular in wildflower season. We have many varieties of orchids that pop up, not to mention a sea of colourful bush.

The kids can play on the rustic bush playground, or if you wish to bring bikes there is plenty of safe bike riding room.
We are only 4.7km off Chester Pass, yet still close to the Porongurup Ranges, the superb million dollar Castle Rock Sky Walk, and the award winning Porongurup Wineries. All of this on our property, within walking distance of your Chalet, or is a 5-10 minute drive away!
