Enjoy a spa under a star-filled night sky, listen to the gentle sounds of the Ringarooma River, explore quiet bush trails, Chinese tin mining heritage, farm-life, catch a wild trout and enjoy inquisitive marsupials, echnidas, platypus and soaring eagles; or just meditate beneath the Sasafras trees.
Relax! ...Stay for a while
Don't treat Tin Dragon Trail Cottages as just a 'bed for the night' on your way to somewhere else. We are your getway experience, your holiday destination. Surround yourself with natural beauty and experience the bush and large night skies. Hear the flowing river, birdsong and scuffling sounds of native wildlife. Feel the vitality of the natural world. Explore our bush trails and read about the local Chinese Tin Mining heritage. Sit quietly on the sandstone benches beneath the Sasafras trees, meditate, enjoy! Walk by the river, watch the fish, wait for the platypus. Take a swim. Explore the river in our canoe. Enjoy the antics of our resident chooks and our crazy failed sheep dog trying to round up the alpacas… Pick vegetables from our organic garden. Talk to your hosts.
Of course we want you to explore the region too. Dare you to skinny dip beneath a waterfall! There is so much to discover. Ask us.
