It has walking tracks through five hectares (12 acres) of grounds consisting of rainforest, open grassed orchard and permanent waters of Bushy Creek.Over 215 species of birds have been recorded at the lodge and adjacent area plus many other animals such as striped and green ringtail possums, northern and long-nosed bandicoots, giant white-tail rats, Boyd's forest dragon, amethystine pythons, giant white-lipped frogs plus many butterfly and moth species. Morning bird walks and evening spotlighting may be available depending on guide availability and minimum numbers, a small fee applies. Less
