The space

"Yurimila" is a secluded, eco-friendly retreat for those seeking to relax in comfort. It has one master bedroom with a comfortable queen-size bed. A double-decker bunk in the main room provides a single mattress up top and a double on the bottom. The house is self-contained with a simple, open plan, timber design. The modern kitchen has a gas stove and oven and a good sized fridge. There is no laundry.

Note only the upper level is available and this is about 170 sq.m including the wrap-around decks. Access only by stairs. The ground level rooms are not available.

Solar panels provide power and water is heated by gas. A wood heater provides a charming ambience and plentiful warmth in the dry season. The elevated position provides a cool, dry change from the North Queensland coast in the Wet Season and commanding views of distant mountains through the bush.

The house is accessed via a long unsurfaced drive. It is traversable by conventional vehicles with care.

Go bushwalking on the 55ha native woodlands property or just relax in your private creek. Tour the neighbouring Wet Tropics; Mt Hypipamee National Park is just round the corner. Stay here enroute during a driving circuit of the Tablelands and north coast or just plant yourself here for a week of meditation.

We were looking for a place to unwind after a hectic time on the coast. This property was just what we needed! To have the entire home to ourselves with no TV or Radio was a bonus. The road in was a little challenging in a small Corolla after rain but not impossible. If you are l…

Tony and Sharon were great hosts, we were provided with detailed directions to find the house and Tony left us firewood for the chilly night. We found the driveway a little tricky to tackle in our Mazda Saran, but it was doable. Amazing views!

Thanks Tony and Sharon. My partner and I had a lovely stay at Wondecla. It was great to stay somewhere so quiet and peaceful, and yet be in easy reach of all that the Tablelands has to offer. Beautiful view, warm fire and comfortable accommodation.

Had a great stay here over Easter. Loved exploring the property and checking out the local sites on the Tablelands.

Tony and Sharon were very agreeable hosts that gave great instructions for arriving and departing their property. The house as described has great views of the surrounding bush lands with a wonderful deck to hangout and read a book on or relax by the fire inside. I would highly …
