Amazing time in the peaceful bush

We had an amazing time at Tatjana and Craig's property! The creek, wildlife and alpacas were so peaceful.
Tatiana's hospitality and communication was above and beyond, she was able to suggest some day trips or adventures and was more than happy to accommodate additional firewood and herbs from her garden that we needed.
We had a great time and would recommend this property to anyone who wants to be in the peaceful bush, but still have the comforts of a lovely, clean, private toilet.
Thank you so much Tatjana ☺️

The Story of Creal's Rest

Away From It All

Enjoy the peacefulness, local wildlife (kookaburras, echidnas, wombats, kangaroos, etc.), small picturesque creek, stunning mountain views and dark skies for star gazing. Birdwatchers will enjoy the abundance of birdlife. Meeting our friendly alpacas added by an exclusive camping experience guarantees to make your stay with us a memorable one.

It is about connecting to nature and finding some time out. Enjoy the beauty of simplicity. Find a primitive "loo with a view" in short walking distance to the site(s). We guarantee you’ll have a pleasant experience here :).
