Established in 1999 Watervale Retreat has 4 self contained cabins. Mike and Petra purchased the property June 2015 and ceased operations while the cabins underwent extensive refurbishments, including new paint, flooring, bedding, linen and other new furniture. Re-opening in October 2015, the cabins continued renovating, now at stage two; upgrading the kitchen and minor upgrades in the bathrooms from Dec to Feb 2016.
The BBQ area was also upgraded with new lighting and a new park safe BBQ installed late 2015.
Late 2016 saw more upgrades with the upgrades of the Televisions, new DVD players, more new linen. Early 2017 is completing stage 3; upgrading the Balustrades to all units.
Continuing the tradition of Watervale Retreat, the animal park has seen a resurgence of animals which now has 3 deer, 3 alpacas and 3 emus (and one day a few more).
Sometimes you will even see our neighbouring sheep, the local kangaroos, wild deer, an assortment of birds including Kookaburras and Owls and the regular Magpies, Possums and more all enjoying our natural environment.
Each night we offer our guests a chance to feed the Emus and Alpacas (our Deer are too shy), however please note that depending on the age of the child, we may request small children stay outside the gate for their safety.
