Fodor's Review

This B&B is in a grand old Edwardian homestead, surrounded by lowland rain forest of the Bushy Park Trust native bird sanctuary. The 90-hectare (222-acre) forest is entirely fenced, excluding animal predators and providing a safe haven for many rare species. Accommodations consist of six spacious bedrooms (with shared bath) with the use of a formal dining room and several lounges, including a television lounge. Wireless Internet is available. Rates include continental breakfast, and dinner can be prearranged. Also in the park are a bunkhouse and campervan and camping sites. During the day in summer, the reserve is open to visitors and a small café operates.
