This is real Australia in all its natural beauty, surrounded by bush and prime farmland. 7 km along the road is Woko National Park. The charming town of Gloucester is a 20-minute drive away, with restaurants, cafes and supermarkets. Gloucester is the gateway to Barrington Tops National Park, larger than the Blue Mountains and part of the Gondwana Rainforests of Australia. The nearest general store is 15 minutes away in Barrington. We often see long-nosed potoroos, wallabies, Manning River Helmeted Turtles, tawny frogmouths and many other birds.
