Wallaby Ridge Retreat
Gold Coast Hinterland accommodation Wallaby Ridge Retreat celebrates 10 years in business in 2015 and is a boutique, accommodation experience set amongst towering gums in the undulating Tamborine Mountain foothills. Set in a secluded wilderness location with elevated outlook with mountain views, the guesthouse overlooks a private Shiraz Vineyard. Indeed a romantic Gold Coast getaway.
Wallaby Ridge is a Scenic Rim boutique accommodation experience and it is not too far from many gold coast hinterland attractions: Bushwalking in Lamington National Park, Tamborine Mountain, Springbrook. Visit Albert River Wines, O’Reillys Vineyard or many of the Tamborine Mountain Wineries such as Cedar Creek Estate, Witches Falls Wines or Mason Wines.
Just a short drive to Canungra and the pick up point for Hot Air guests relax here as an alternate and quieter stay to busier centres of the area. Set staunchly into the hillside, It is purpose built with roomy self-contained suites (supplied with generous breakfast baskets) and offers a comfortable and relaxing accommodation experience. Quiet, private, secluded, a perfect escape for couples or travellers looking for a genuine Australian experience. Wallaby Ridge’s geographical location can tap directly into several Tourist Drives: The Rainforest Way, The Great Sunshine Way and the Scenic Rim Arts/Heritage Trails and Tourist Drive 8: the Food and Wine Trail.
The beautiful views west to the Great Dividing Range are a fortunate quirk of its geography with its grassy centrepiece a magnet for its namesake red-necked Wallabies. The birds and wildlife are a highlight for overseas visitors. Enjoy the antics of cockatoos, king parrots, galahs, rainbow lorikeets, plus many less common indigenous species such glossy black cockatoos and many others. It’s a birders dream with plenty of habitat variety and viewing points, plus access to some of the richest birding experiences in Australia.
Why not embrace the Queensland lifestyle – enjoy a cooling dip in the salt pool after a days bushwalking at Lamington National Park.
Start your evening with a stunning heated hilltop spa with air purifier at sunset with your partner. A relaxing BBQ in our “outdoor room” with one of our BBQ packs or you bring your own. Book as a group and let us fire up the woodfired pizza oven and enjoy local produce as part of your stay.
Let us tailor a package to your needs. Enjoy a romantic dinner for 2 in your suite instead of a breakfast basket for our Hot Air visitors. Or perhaps just self cater and we can supply accommodation only. Make sure to call so we can discuss your needs.
Want to eat out? Enjoy a vineyard lunch at award winning Albert River Wines and O’Reillys Canungra Valley Vineyard or enjoy a hearty Australian Pub Dinner and the Canungra Hotel. The Outpost Café in Canungra is renowned for that great Australian icon the meat pie and for an international flavour try Tamborine Mountain for Thai, Indian, Italian and modern fusion Australian with some very high quality restaurants Three Little Pigs, The Blue Church to name a couple.
