Eco luxury ☺ Loved that all bases of our stay were covered EVERY WHERE! We brought marshmallows to roast, lo and behold, they were already provided! The fire pit was my favourite part. It was very cold mid winter, but there were plenty of ways to stay warm, fire pit, electric blankets, extra blankets and gas heating. Peter and Tracey really looked after us ☹ Nothing really

Such lovely accommodation well executed. The hosts attention to detail and quality made our stay very enjoyable. So peaceful and private, overlooking wildflowers one direction, and paddock with horses the main view.

wallabies rest is the perfect getaway for a relaxing, peaceful escape from everyday life. The location is absolutely perfect. Peter and Tracy have thought of everything. Its glamping at its finest. The accommodation is spacious, extremely well presented and immaculately clean. You have everything you need to retreat to the Bush for a night or few. Peter and Tracy graced us with the warmest of welcomes, showed us where everything was and left us to enjoy the peace and quiet, but were more then happy to help where needed. my husband and I will definitely be going back. Peter and Tracy it was lovely to meet you and we Cant thank you enough. 15/10

Spent a relaxing weekend at wallabies rest. Very neat and tidy with a comfy bed, also self contained with modern conveniences. Peaceful surroundings in a bush setting. Visited Rylstone a nearby town and stopped at winery on the way back. Had an enjoyable dinner at Capertee hotel, which is a 15 min drive from the accomodation. I highly recommend this glamping experience.
