Forest Walk at studio

Forest Walk  

Update25/11/21: Vegetation on our property is growing vigourously and we are slowly establishing our forest walk. It should look amazing when completed.

Please note: Due to bushfire damage our forest walk is being re-established and should be better than ever. However this will take some time so please be patient.

We are currently developing a forest walk in the grounds of our Studio. It starts off with an arbour and winds its way through the forests around our property. On the way we are developing gardens and various zen views with benches and seats to take in the tranquillity of our surrounds.

The forest creates a loverly shaded retreat during the hot summer months. However, mosquitoes also like the shaded spots so we are beginning to plant mosquitoe repellant plants to deter them

 Development stages

In its developing stages, any comments or ideas would be appreciated and taken into consideration in the forest walk’s development. This is an exciting project for us and we hope you can share in it also.For example recommending different plant species that suit the environment as well as being easy maintain.

Presently we are enjoying its beauty and we hope you can too.

Mountain Bike riding Tracks

Lake Conjola is a great place for mountain bike riding , exploring the many different tracks and the beauty of our district. The area presents many wonderful mountain bike tracks in its national parks and reserves. Narrawallee Creek nature reserve for one leads you down to Buckleys point, Lake Conjola beach and all the way to narrrawallee creek entrance.

Another one that needs mentioning is in Lake Conjola national park; “the sir Walterhood” ride. It runs for 22 kilometres but can be extended into longer rides. Many people staying at our studio have commented on how exciting and beautiful the Sir Walterhood ride is! Along its track you encounter creeks, beaches and many different forests.

Our accommodation at Narrawallee Creek studio is a central location for the mountain bike tracks at Lake Conjola and the surrounding district.  Narrawallee Creek nature Reserve is only minutes away from our cottage.

Hope you can make it and enjoy our wonderful area. Early morning summer is a great time of year for mountain biking. Beat the heat and be home early enough for a dip in the ocean.

Country Retreat with Wood Fire

Our accommodation at Lake Conjola on the South coast of NSW, provides a very comfortable country retreat in a secluded corner of Lake Conjola. The property is on 5 acres, surrounded by national parks and local farms. A home away from the summer crowds.

The cottage is self contained with a well equipped kitchen. The cottage has been designed to make the most of Australia’s climatic conditions.The large open plan lounge area is heated by a wood fire providing a very cosy atmosphere during the winter months. In the Summer months we have the spacious cool verandahs to relax on, with grape vines providing a shady cover.

To lessen our footprint on the environment we have erected most of this cottage with recycle materials. In doing so, we believe it has added a great deal of character and charm to the building. A romantic country retreat so to speak. Not just a minimalistic concrete box seen so often today!

Nature and Wildlife Features

The surrounds of our country retreat  share the space with a large variety of wildlife and fauna. Since the bush fires trees and flora are re-establishing well and the Kangaroos are starting to graze around the cottage retreat.Many varieties of birds have also come back and can be seen from the verandhas.
