  • Absolutely spectacular. Breathtaking views, amazing craftsmanship, luxurious cabins, spectacular food, warm friendly service. Not possible to rate it any higher - absolutely amazing place that we have not been able to find its equal so look forward to returning every year since 2000 and wouldn't go anywhere else.

  • We soon settled into our unique accommodation in the tree house/cabin with the most amazing views of the lake. We loved everything about this place even to the morning visits of the Kookaburras on our verandah. The spa was great with views of the lake whilst enjoying our wine... so relaxing!! The hanging wood fire was something else again. Loved every moment of everything.

    - Jan & Ron
  • My partner surprised me a weekend away and I was certainly lost for words. It was the most romantic weekend and he also proposed to me. The room was so beautiful and the detail in the woodwork was amazing. The view was absolutely beautiful, couldn't ask for anything better. We were greeted by friendly staff who wanted to make our stay very memorable and they sure did!

    - BRONWYN
  • Wow! I had no idea that such a place existed. So private, such great views, such friendly and accommodating staff. Secrets really does give you an opportunity to escape from the world and it is just an hour from Brissie! Oh yeah, love those birds in the morning. Great to share brekky with forest birds just sitting on the rail watching, but be careful, they love the sausages on the BBQ! A great place. If you’ve not done it, best get in line!
