Newly constructed, Ironbark House has two large bedrooms both with spacious en-suites, separated by a welcoming kitchen/dining/living area with a generous verandah overlooking the most amazing vista for luxurious al-fresco dining and entertaining. There is also a second, opposing verandah to soak up more incredible views
The raked ceilings add to the sense of light, freedom and spaciousness that this modern Australian bush retreat has in abundance.
Bedroom 1 has a King bed which can be split into two singles if required. The generous room has full sized wardrobe, seating area, direct access onto the verandah and spacious en-suite.
Bedroom 2 has a Queen bed and a day bed, which can be converted into a King bed. Wardrobe, en-suite and amazing views finish this room.
The Kitchen is well equipped, bearing in mind that this house is totally dependent on solar power generation, so you won’t find power hungry monsters like dishwashers and coffee machines here, but has all the essentials for a comfortable stay. The oven and cook-top are gas, there is a generous fridge/freezer, tea, coffee and basic condiments are provided.
The combined Dining and Living area, which like every room in the house has amazing views is equipped with dining table for 6, VAST TV which offers plenty of channels, two comfortable sofas, there is good mobile and internet reception (no WIFI).
There are two verandahs to make the most of the sun (or shade) during the day. The main one comes complete with BBQ, al-fresco dinning and seating area. Swing in the hammock and watch the sun go down while being entertained by the local wildlife.
This completely private 1345 acre working cattle property near Mount Mulligan is a mix of wildlife habitat, with a healthy bird population of well over 110 different species found on the property, as well as it’s own colony of Mareeba Rock Wallabies.
A network of trails covers the entire property accessible by a variety of means, 4X4, horseback, mountain bike or of course by walking. There are 6 dams on the property, the two largest are a hive of activity with numerous water birds including the cotton pygmy goose. Or sit quietly and watch the cattle slake their thirst accompanied by a mix of native animals. If you’re feeling fit, climb to the top of Ironbark Hill for stunning 360 degree views.
Ironbark House is just over an hours drive from Chillagoe Caves, less than 2 hours from Cairns International Airport and Port Douglas, and well worth the visit!
