Barking Owl Retreat News

Atherton Tablelands Accommodation News page for new and returning guests to see
what's changed, what's happening, and what's new here at Barking Owl Retreat.

Droughtmaster Steers 2014

Hi again everyone,
Sorry I am a little behind in the news department at the moment. So much has happened here. To start we have some new boys. 8 Droughtmaster Steers pictured above. We also have some new Call Ducks (Mini Ducks) They also mingle with the wild ducks in the pond.

The Call Ducks all have names from Left to right above we have a wild duck, Snow, Missy, Channing, Ginger Meg, Rolly, and Egret. One of our young guests help name them.
She also named the Pearl Guinea Fowl male Frodo!

Barking Owl Retreat Call Ducks

The Call ducks wait at the front door every morning for breakfast and even come in the carport some days.

Call Ducks

Unfortunately the new geese were not fond of our new ducks so we had to find them a new home so they have gone to a new Tableland Home as watch geese. Believe it or not to protect the owners against thieves!

Bear and Jaffa

Australian Red Cattle dog puppies

The big news is Jaffa and Bear are having Australian Red Cattle Dog puppies. Well they have already been born as they came early. She had the pups the same night as the photo above. And she was still running around chasing balls that day. How did she fit 7 puppies in that belly? She had 5 girls and 2 boys. They are still white and it is hard to tell but there may be at least one blue one.

We will keep you posted with photos as they grow up.

Some recent guests got an awesome shot of one of the owls on the jetty posts above. I enjoyed an early morning run at Lake Tinaroo Dam and Danbulla National Park in September.
What a beautiful day it was.

Last but not least we have some new vintage of our WA Barking Owl Wines which have proven to be popular as always.
