Guests also have the option of cooking in the sheltered outdoor area where there is a BBQ provided as well as a fire dish. Dining space can also be found both inside and out. The cabin is located in the bush, so guests can walk out and try to find the resident breeding pair of Lyrebirds, echidnas, wombats, wallabies, kangaroos, or the deer that among the property. Or, guests can roam on the 67 acres of land and explore the wonderful surrounding nature. If glampers are keen horse riders, hosts allow horses to be brought to the site where they can reside in the safely fenced paddocks and arena.

Guests should be sure to pack a picnic for their excursions so that they can take time to enjoy the breathtaking views on offer.

The property has farm animals, and children will enjoy feeding the ducks, chickens, and pigs or petting the horses with the owner present. There is trout fishing farm in the area, and it's also well known for its markets. Horseriding in this area is second to none, thanks to the amazing trails on offer. Guests can even bring their own horses, as there is a paddock at the property, or hosts can help arrange trail rides in the area.

For evening entertainment, guests can enjoy a visit to one of the theaters or visit a live music venue, in a nearby town or have a fire on the terrace, looking out on the property's bush.
