Other things to note

A small herd of 5 -10 kangaroos wanders through the property intermittently and can often be seen grazing nearby. The occasional koala makes an appearance and we have masses of bird life coming and going seasonally. I have 4 hens and a small flock of Gouldian finches in an aviary at the bottom of the yard.
We are about 1 hours drive from both Brisbane and the Gold Coast, situated on the edge of the Scenic Rim of SE Qld

Rustic rural setting. Missed koalas and owls but watched wallabies feeding. Excellent star gazing. Lovely to get out of town.

The photos are not deceiving as it what you see on here... a nice cosy barn with a loft nestled in the beautiful woodlands of Jimboomba. Cathie and Tony were lovely. The complimentary breakfast added a warm friendly touch to our stay. I would recommend staying here...thank you.

I am a retired Naturopath. I live here with my husband Tony , 4 chooks and 40 finches. I love classical music but also enjoy most other music. I play violin (not very well) I paint (better than my violin playing) I make patchwork quilts on commission and knit clothes and homewares for sale from my occasional market stall at local markets. I also am a keen gardener . I love travel, good food, and cooking.
