Our ecologically, sustainable cabin and cottage, Bimbul and Serenity, are totally self-contained - as is best when the nearest shop at Beaudesert is nearly forty minutes away. Such is life in the wilderness end of Lamington National Park.
All you have to do is bring your own food and beverages.
- Electric cooktop

- Kitchen utensils
- Tea and coffee
Our coffee is sourced from Mackellar at Hogarth Range, northern NSW.
Toiletries from Handmade Naturals in Highgate Hill, Brisbane.

Introducing ‘the pad’
