Native animals can be seen in the rainforest surrounding your cottage.
The adorable Red-legged Pademelon (small rainforest kangaroo) venture out from the rainforest to graze on the grass in the mornings and evenings and are a common sight from the deck of your cottage. It is usual to see a baby joey peeking from a pouch.
See our Pademelon Page for more information, images and videos.
Musky-rat Kangaroos are the smallest and most primitive of the macropods and tend to bound rather than hop. They are very shy, but you can see them by day, quickly darting out to enjoy some fruit on the forest floor.
Cute antechinus can be seen scurrying around the cottages. The yellow-footed antechinus is pictured here.
Bandicoots can be seen digging in the grass during the night. They are very shy and bound away at any movement, looking somewhat like a rabbit.
