Barking Owl Retreat Activities

Just relax and take in the views, native wildlife, birds, and farm animals from your private deck, soak your worries away in the large double Spa, or take a stroll on the property walking tracks. Other Activities include dropping a line in the property Dam to catch a
Sooty Grunter (Black Bream). Fishing equipment is supplied or you are welcome to
bring your own. Don't fish, then enjoy a hamper on the Jetty, a wine whilst listening to
birdsong and watching the sunset on the horizon, or capture the beauty of our property by
photography. Cozy up to the warm open fireplace in the Dam Hut while toasting marshallows, or raid the Gourmet Mini Bar and veg out with a DVD and an afternoon snooze.
Perfect for Birdwatching on the Atherton Tablelands. See our Birdwatching page.

Take a self drive scenic tour of the Atherton Tablelands Attractions including the Millaa Milla Waterfalls circuit or visit the famous Yungaburra Markets. Choose from the many Atherton Tablelands Tours to do along the way. Feeling energetic, try some Lake Tinaroo Dam Wake Boarding, Skiing or Barra Fishing. Or enjoy the many heritage listed rainforest bushwalking tracks or a refreshing swim at nearby Lake Eacham volcanic Crater Lake. For fitness there is Golf, Squash, Ten Pin Bowling, and a few local Gyms in Atherton and Tolga. The Tablelands also has a grand old Majestic Theatre for the latest movies located in Malanda. Indulge in the Tablelands Local Produce on offer for lunch, then enjoy one of our sumptuous BBQ Hampers on your private deck for dinner, or dine in one of the nearby Tablelands A-La-Carte Restaurants. Finish the night with a Wine and Cheese Hamper while listening to the peaceful call of the Barking Owl. Relax even more, by reserving a rejuvenating Remedial Massage in the privacy of your own cottage.
