Other things to note
The hidden jewel of Jancourt is its surprising wealth of native animals and plants, a microcosm of the Australian bush. Waking early, you will be privileged to the morning chorus, as a host of birds flitter through the soaring eucalypts, their musical calls echoing between the trunks. Marvel at the surprising cackle of the laughing Kookaburra (Australia’s giant kingfisher), the warble of the ever-present magpie and the light (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) and blue flash of the superb fairy-wren as it bounces through ferns.
If you’re lucky, dark fluffy swamp wallabies and majestic grey kangaroo’s can sometimes be seen browsing the shrubs out-front or even resting on the deck. In the evening, be surprised by the deep grunts of amorous male koalas as they challenge each other across the forest. Or the patient observer might witness a ring tail possum as it scuttles across the deck in the dusk.
Like everywhere the best times to see wild life is early in the mornings or as the sun goes down in the evenings. Whatever your level of enthusiasm for the wild, Jancourt is a wonderful place to just relax and allow the natural sounds of the bush wash away the city from your mind!
No smoking inside the house or on the premises. No pets. No motorbikes or trail bikes. Mountain bikes ok.
