Our place is a relaxing semi-rural property with plenty of space to relax and unwind. Enjoy a stroll through the gardens, watch the birds, enjoy the wildlife, swim in the pool. Experience local bushwalks, go cycling, explore the sights of Canberra, walk around Lake Burley Griffin, visit the local wineries. Close to Canberra, Queanbeyan and Bungendore.

We live in beautiful Carwoola, on the Molonglo river, just before the Hoskinstown plain. The property includes large garden areas, an orchard, and river frontage. The grounds are visited/inhabited by kangaroos, possums, echidnas, water dragons, a large number of small birds and the occasional wombat. We have also seen turtles and water rats in the river.

Interaction with guests
We are happy to interact or leave you to yourself during your visit (please feel free to let us know which you would prefer).
We have lots of pamphlets for you to look at to help plan your Canberra adventure!
By arrangement, Russell may be able to take you on a guided tour of Canberra if he is free.
Other things to note
You are free to use the pool up until 9pm or later by arrangement.
We have two young cats and a puppy who you may see in the courtyard garden.
Please treat our home with care and respect. No extra visitors except by consultation with hosts. No food in the bedrooms please as it attracts ants. On weekdays we ask that noise is kept to a minimum after 10pm.
Russell and I are empty nesters. We have a big house on 5 acres in the peaceful rural haven of Carwoola. We believe it's too good not to share so we'd love you to visit! We love spending time with family, working in the garden, drinking tea and coffee, and relaxing. We are friendly, easygoing and happy to chat or leave you in peace - your choice! While our house is 'out of town', we are very close to Queanbeyan (18km), Bungendore (20km), Canberra Airport (24km), and Canberra City centre (31km).
