Details

Woodlands Rainforest Retreat is a short break destination for adult couples, a hideaway retreat offering a rare combination of indulgent luxury and nature based experience in a truly secluded temperate rainforest in the mountains of the Black Spur. The four architect designed self contained bungalows are situated in rainforest remnant on 40 acres overlooking the fern gullies of the Hermitage Creek.

Each bungalow is hidden in its own separate enclave within the rainforest, offering complete seclusion, both from each other and the outside world. They are completely out of sight, overlooking beautiful fern gullies and a private bushland lake, with the sound of the babbling Hermitage Creek in the background. There are no neighbours....only the wombats, wallabies, echidnas and platypus (if you listen very carefully). Guests are able to enjoy a unique part of Australia, a temperate rainforest with native flora and fauna featuring magnificent birdlife. All of these wonders can be enjoyed from the huge elevated deck of each bungalow. Or through the floor to ceiling windows that frame the wonderful backdrop.

Woodlands offers a rare opportunity for guests to enjoy this wonderful environment without compromising on their comfort or luxury, while protecting the integrity of the natural environment. The bungalows act as a perfect "hide" - protecting the rainforest from human interference while allowing guests to enjoy the beauty of the rainforest.

The four bungalows were designed by local architect David Underwood, and are split level and open plan with huge windows that look out at a wallpaper of living forest. Crafted from local materials - polished mountain ash floorboards,recycled myrtle beech benches and radially sawn yellow stringybark exterior cladding, the bungalows blend into the surrounding bush so perfectly that they seem part of the rainforest furniture.
