In the evening take a glass of wine and sink into your private outdoor spa; breathe in the cool bush air and watch the colours slowly shift into a clear starlit sky.Stay in one of our boutique luxury spa cottages, lovingly created from handmade mudbricks and 100 year old turpentine wood reclaimed from the original Sydney Fingerwharf.
