The Victorian Train Carriage is one of only 23 built between the years 1882 and 1886, and it’s the only one owned privately. This restored carriage has a double size bed in a carpeted bedroom, a small kitchen with hotplates for cooking, a full size refrigerator and a storage space. It also has an outside deck area overlooking an orchard. There is a split-system air conditioning for maximum comfort in summer and winter. This unique carriage can accommodate up to 2 people.

Queenslander Train Carriage is a 60-year-old, lovingly restored train with over 1,00 hours of work that provides the ambiance of a bygone era. Located in the orchard towards the rear of the property, this carriage provides a double bed in a separate bedroom (8 square meters) with timber floors, an attached en-suite bathroom, a separate space for a fully equipped kitchen/living area, a split system air-conditioning for winter and summer comfort, and an outdoor deck with a perfect view of the coffee orchard.

Eat out at one of the cafes or hotels in the area or similarly, glampers can prepare their own meals in the fully equipped self-catering train carriage dining car.

The Ecolodge is the perfect place to unwind and relax where the sounds of mobiles have been replaced by the early morning bush orchestra of birds. No highway noise here!
Explore the Hinterland and nearby attractions (You will need more than 1 day) Most of these attractions are located nearby or a half hour drive away.

Take an Ocean walk and explore 11 zones with over 150 species of aquatic species. Take the plunge with the Shark Dive Extreme and come face to face with over 8 species of Sharks and Rays. Located 30 mins from the Ecolodge.

The Sunshine Coast is famous for its beaches and we are only half an hour drive from many of them and glampers can learn to surf, what great fun to do with children! Explore this famous sand dune island by four-wheel drive bus with a great tour guide and enjoy a delicious fresh food lunch.

It is possible to take a day tour of Fraser Island returning to the glamping site the same evening, allowing substantial savings compared to staying overnight at Hervey Bay. Take a guided kayak tour of the calm waters of the Pumicestone Passage.

The tour starts early in the morning and bookings are essential. Or alternatively, purchase the five-day/four-night Hinterland Explorer Package. There are several options for glampers to choose from leaving from Mooloolaba or further north from Hervey bay to enjoy whale watching. Check out these awesome and gentle giants of the sea.
