Interaction with guests
After your scenic drive to Wongari we will meet you at the cabin you have chosen and settle you in. We're happy to answer any immediate questions like which way is North? where are the walks? We provide a two-way for contact as each cabin is private and secluded. Unless we are contacted during our guests stay we do not disturb them and our cabins are, of course, self-contained. Instead we give a two-way call to check all has gone well. On exiting our guests simply leave the key on the table.

Just what the doctor ordered.....when you stay at Wangari you are forced to just stop and release. No phone reception, no TV, no WiFi.....just the sound of the bubbling Christmas Creek or the crackling of the fire.

The accomodation is just beautiful with exceptional thought put into ensuring that guests stay comfortable and relaxed all weekend.

A little tricky to find, no eftpos you may pay deposit via bank transfer then cash on the day of your stay. Thi said is neither here nor there. Pack some food, wine, and a good book and enjoy just being able to stop, breathe and take time out of your busy life.

We can't wait to go back for our next stay

How to get there
Airport: Brisbane or Gold Coast: 120.0 km
From Beaudesert follow the signs to Rathdowney as you continue south along the Mt Lindsay highway for another 14 kilometers to Laravale. At Laravale you veer left onto Christmas Creek Road. If you continue another 31.91 kilometers you will find Serenity's entrance on your left. Another 140m to Bimbul's entrance (3205). The last three kilometers of road is unsurfaced (keep going!) but all-weather, scenic and very passable. If you require any further assistance in locating us we can be contacted.
