Barking Owl Retreat
This wonderfully named property contains two self-contained cottages: Dingo’s Lair and Owl’s Hollow. The cottages are spaced well apart and set in 16 hectares of property in a valley on the edge of the Atherton Tableland, just clear of the drizzle that makes the Cairns highlands so lush and green. Fishing gear is available if you want to drop a line and try to catch a sooty grunter for dinner in the farm dam. Dingo’s Lair has a private double spa and both cottages have lovely verandahs, where you can just sit and watch the farm animals and wildlife. Massages can be arranged in your cottage. And there really are barking owls, along with myriad colourful tropical birds.
