Hemingway’s on the Hill is a rustic private indulgence. Set high on the hill, bearing witness to the best of rural life. Cows graze paddocks, and flocks of birds fly overhead. Life is everywhere. Curated by Fifi. She wrote a story for the life to be lived in the space. Like the great man himself, thoughtful yet spare enough with surprises of artful collection. We escaped the city 15 years ago. We found a better life. Come and stay and write your own love story.
“Hemingway’s is such a magical place where guests can truly unwind and forget about the world. All of the personal touches made for an extra special stay. 2 days of pure bliss and serenity, I can’t wait to come and stay again.”
Private retreat set on 5 acres of native bushland teeming with local wildlife. Hosts Larry and Effie welcome you to explore the property where you’ll find a beautiful seasonal creek, extensive fruit orchard and some lovely farm animals. Doing our best in our little world for the environment and the wildlife. Only 4km from town and close to Emerald Falls National Park, you’ll also be treated to spectacular views towards the Atherton Tableland, where hot air balloons drift at sunrise
“Absolutely stunning accommodation and location! Would love to stay again some time soon! Lots of little touches which make the stay extra special (bfast, fresh juice, dvds, fresh flowers). Larry is very friendly and helpful, and his farm animals are so cute! We didn’t expect to find such nice accommodation in the area so it was a lovely surprise”
Usnea, our Nature, Art and Accommodation Space, is situated on the Evelyn Tablelands, Tropical North Qld. It is a fully self-contained one bedroom cottage in upland rainforest, surrounded by natural and established gardens, and at 1,160m provides a cool summer and cosy winter retreat. Uniquely the cottage integrates art within and outside. Contemplation, inspiration, privacy and comfort, are all to be experienced, along with exploring our forest and local environmental and historical features.
“Absolutely amazing. Staying in this peaceful eco rainforest home was the highlight of our trip to Cairns and surroundings. It beat every single gorge, waterfall and beach. Make sure you listen to the CD’s and read the books on the bookshelf, there are many interesting books. We are planning on sending our parents there who have just bought a new house for inspiration. It is truly a creative, peaceful haven. If you’re reading this.. just book and go. Thank you so much Ben and June xo”
