“Unique rainforest setting where you can truly relax & unwind”
Reviewed 27 November 2011 for a stay in October 2011

Our family enjoyed four wonderful days at Halwyn. Our girls loved swimming in the water hole with the jungle perch, catfish, eels and freshwater prawns. Gazing out from the deck at the roaring creek and spotting butterflies while we ate our BBQ lunch was just devine. With no TV, broadband or mobile phone service in the area we were able to relax and unwind. The house is clean and comfortable but it is the rainforest setting that makes this accommodation a truly unique destination.

“Slice of Paradise”
Reviewed 11 July 2011 for a stay in July 2011

Our family recently stayed at Halwyn for two nights and absolutely fell in love with the house. It was very homely and the sound of the running waterfall was so relaxing, I could have sat on the veranda all day, just listening and watching the beautiful creek. The manager was very accommodating, although we needed nothing, everything had been thought of and supplied with the house. We had a great visit at the Insect Museum situated on the same road, well woth visiting! The kids loved exploring the creek and the great swimming areas. Looking foward to returning again.

“Ahhh. The serenity!”
Reviewed 30 June 2011 for a stay in June 2011

WOW. What a wonderful location. We spent most mornings on the porch with a cuppa listening to the birds awake and watching the place come alive. Rounded off the day on the porch with a drink or two enjoying the serenity. If you're after a complete break away from the rat race you couldn't ask for a better location to do it in. (YAY! no phone or internet = NO WORK!) The running creek and rainforest surrounds are fantastic. The house comfy. Stacks to do in the area if you need to get out. Great restaurants. Lovely place to just chill.
