Rose Gums Wilderness Retreat is OPEN with contactless check-in/out.

Some attractions are closed but not the free natural attractions.

Lakes, waterfalls and national parks are there to enjoy as are our 10 kilometres of trails at Rose Gums.

We are offering discounts for 3 plus night stays. See our prices on the booking button, but best to phone direct.

We are operating a contactless check-in and check-out procedure. FULL PAYMENT MUST BE MADE BEFORE CHECK-IN.  If there are government directives to stop your travel to Rose Gums, and you must cancel a full

refund will be made. Once you have checked in and should you have to leave due to government directives we will refund the balance of the remaining nights of your stay.

We will email you all instructions on CONTACTLESS CHECK-IN PROCEDURE. Please read the email and attachments thoroughly.

MEALS - Due to government regulations and supplier and delivery issues we are not able to offer complimentary breakfast hampers or in-room dining. See meals page. 

FIREWOOD - There will be a limited amount of firewood in your woodbox,  due to supply issues. Our apologies!

If you are in any way concerned about the Corona Virus, then our property is an ideal location to isolate and escape......

Our self-contained treehouses are individually set away from each other, there is no problems with social separation here, and we even have toilet paper!! 

If you are looking to stay for an extended period of time, then don't hesitate to ask us about our long stay rates as well.

We can't wait to welcome you to our safe, isolated, luxury retreat.
