Photographers & Birdwatchers paradise - Our Yurt overlooks beautiful Hurdle Creek, 100 acres of river flats forested with Red Gums & an easy 10 minute walk to our private stretch of King River frontage. Brangie Dams expansive waters reflect the skies, trees, vineyard, sunrise & sunset. Sparkling with sunlight, or dimpled with raindrops, sometimes teeming with birdlife, sometimes hosting a solitary bird, always a beautiful, tranquil spot to enjoy & reflect. Brangie provides sanctuary for native animals including: kangaroos, wallabies, wombats, echidnas, possums, lizards, frogs, fish, turtles, platypus, Rakali (native water rat), snakes and innumerable bird species. It is a healthy and diverse ecosystem that we wish to protect and regenerate by removing weed species and revegetating new areas to return it to a more natural state.

Interaction with guests
We do everything we can to ensure your privacy & quiet enjoyment of the property. It is a private property, we need to know who is on it at all times for their safety. This is a working property there are livestock & there will be animal poop – watch your step! There will also be (from time to time) cattle being moved or located by four wheeler bikes & workers in the vineyard during harvest, pruning & thinning seasons. Also occasionally tractor work in vineyard for slashing or spraying – no spraying will be undertaken on any day when there is a chance of wind blowing spray near the Yurt complex.
Other things to note
Welcome to our home - Please respect the environment, facilities, 20km/hr Maximum Speed Limit & treat everything with care.
Accidents happen, let us know as soon as possible, for your own comfort & that of the next guest.
Please respect the native fauna & flora and give all creatures space to enjoy their peaceful natural surroundings. We are striving to develop an ecosystem that is supportive & welcoming of native wildlife & provides them a safe sanctuary. Please support us in our endeavours.
This is a bushland setting & there will be bugs of all varieties. We do our best to keep them out of the Yurt & Bathroom facilities & remind our guests to do the same. Keep the doors shut at all times, or you never know what might be sharing your bed or shower! We’re here to help, if you do find a bug you can’t stand as a room-mate & don’t wish to remove it yourself, give us a call.
The sounds you will mostly hear are birdsong & the breeze in the trees, however sound travels in quiet surroundings. Water is a great conductor of sound & from time to time you may hear sounds from far away which may include some traffic sounds & gunshots. This is not a regular occurrence but we don’t wish you to be alarmed if you do hear this. It may sound very close but will actually be neighbouring farmers scaring off foxes. We do not shoot on our property, nor allow anyone else to do so. If you’ve never heard a bull roar you might be forgiven for thinking someone is doing something awful to a cow, don’t be alarmed, it’s just the noise they make from time to time.
