Timber top Lodge is an 'off-grid' eco-friendly retreat for nature and sports lovers .
Timber Top Lodge is solar powered, which provides electricity and gas for cooking, hot water and home entertainment. The water is sourced from a natural spring that originates from a steep highland close by.
As part of your retreat from urban living, you can spend the day lolling on the deck and watch the King Parrots in the huge gum trees nearby or rest by the log fire and read a book or watch TV. You can also explore the large indigenous garden.
While you are staying at Timber Top, you will have sole occupancy of the Lodge, with your own private garden and car park. Please note that the garden is not fenced.
