Blue Derby Epic MTB trail: drive from Weldborough to Poimena
On top of Australia Hill Sunday October 16 2016 : So exciting that the 40km Blue Derby Epic MTB trail has been officially opened! But we had also heard about a 4WD track linking the MTB trail to Frome Road, so we took off for a Sunday of 4WD exploration. ( ...

Mt Saddleback Walking Track

An absolute gem. We stayed here for three wonderful nights, and loved it. From the moment we arrived we were made to feel welcome by the hosts, Graham and Christine. The property itself is a tranquil hideaway set in a bend of the Ringarooma River. You get a lovely rural outlook, with no noise other than the sound of the water. The cottages a works of art. They are rustic in appearance, and yet modern in amenity. Everything you could need can be found inside, including full cooking facilities, a gas log fire, and a very comfortable bed. We booked one of the spa cottages as a treat. Watching the Milky Way from the outdoor spa was incredible! Even a possum decided to join us for this activity! There are plenty of drives in the area too. A visit in the hills to the abandoned Mt Paris Dam is well worth the effort. We also loved the beaches at Little Musselroe Bay. I really can't recommend Tin Dragon Cottages highly enough.

Wow what an interesting stay we had during the recent June 2016 floods. The storm followed us in and the rain was relentless over several days. From the very comfortable, dry and warm Ah Back cottage we were perfectly located to watch the river break its banks from both sides of the cottage. While witnessing mother nature in this form first hand was an unexpected event, we were not at all alarmed. When road access on and off the property delayed our departure we were generously provided another night's accommodation along with additional supplies for the kitchen. Throughout, the hosts kept us well informed but at the same time were not invasive. We were particularly grateful to have been shown the micro hydro scheme immediately following our request on arrival and to tour the productive garden once the rain had subsided. We enjoyed wildlife at the door of our cabin and look forward to exploring the property more fully on our next visit. The 5 cottages are positioned high and dry, and while each is generally booked separately, collectively they are ideal for a large booking. We will definitely be returning.
