Great location, friendly owner and well equipt
The cabin was very well equipt and the owner provided loads of local produce for our stay. Short stroll to the river and large garden to wonder around. Close to all attractions around the Atherton Tablelands area. We visited several lakes and waterfalls within 30 minutes driving distance.

A mastercraft built accommodation unit with your own private rear balcony lined with trees over- looking the river. This area and the garden are good for bird watching. The hosts are most hospitable and willing to advise on local sights. The accommodation is first class, with everything you need including a very well stocked kitchen with all your breakfast provisions supplied. Located just outside Malanda, it is central to the sights of the Atherton Tableland. Could not fault it.

Well maintained property with excellent communication from hosts. Fully stocked kitchen and breakfast amenities, including nice little “unexpected” touches (chocolates, large choice of jam spreads etc). Large bathroom and spa and all the conveniences included. 10mins drive to Yungaburra and nearby attractions.
