Well, what a fantastic place to stay, a little on the expensive side but with a sumptuous brekkie included, and warm croissants delivered to your door, this place exudes peace and quiet and beautiful views. Very friendly hosts and freedom from wifi and TV. Both are possible but not that good. The accomodation is excellent, with a great fireplace, spa,...

We arrived - to the middle of nowhere it seemed, to a series of four cabins perched on a hillside overlooking a working farm and an old very large Yabby farm waterbed that now serves as a gorgeous location for events, with an old (but newly built) barn alongside it that has been well set up for some grand old...

My husband's comment to me said it all. "Each time I come here, I feel at home" This was our second trip (the first being 18 months ago) So we've been in winter and now in Summer. Still lush and green, but a bit sad to see the water levels down, although not so down that we couldn't enjoy a...

The Yabbaloumba retreat is by far the best place I've stayed. You receive a complimentary bottle of wine and cheese platter upon arrival. You are provided with bacon, eggs, mushrooms, tomatoes, yoghurt and muesli and a fruit platter for breakfast for the next morning all upon arrival. In the morning one of the lovely staff delivers fresh croissants to your...

My husband and I booked a trip to yabbaloumba in winter for a weekend getaway. It was absolutely amazing! Barb and Lloyd up at the homestead are so welcoming and made everything so easy. The breakfast hampers are lovely and it was really nice not to have to stop for anything on the drive, or venture out too early for...

We stayed here for 2 nights to get away from it all and are so glad we did! Fireplace, spa tub, deck overlooking beautiful scenery, delicious daily breakfast, what more could you ask for?! The cabins are in a row but positioned perfectly so they are private,we only knew others were staying because we saw their cars - otherwise we...

This was our third time staying here & we absolutely love it. YR would have to be one of the most peaceful getaways you could find, the surrounding countryside takes your breathe away. The cabins have everything (& more) that you need whether you stay for 1 night or a week. We love how the kookaburras & other birds sit...

If you need some time out in the country, thus us the place. Barb & Lloyd provide your meals in your own cabin. Bar-b-que in the little balcony while you sit back and enjoy the quite.

“There are only four cabins - excellent value for money. Not much to do there - and if that's what you're seeking it's perfect!”
