The SpaceEntry is from your own off-street driveway or you can park in the garage. In your suite you'll find a choice of complimentary teas and coffees, milk and breakfast cereals.
You look out over bushland and the golf course but there are two restaurants (Red Hill Lookout Restaurant and the Federal Golf Club restaurant) with 500 metres.
In the evening, if you sit out on your deck while having dinner or a drink, you'll usually be joined by kangaroos grazing on the lawn a few metres away. Scanning the trees with a torch will often reveal sugar gliders, brushtail possums or a passing owl.
During the day, gang-gangs, yellow-tailed black cockatoos, little corellas, king parrots, crimson and eastern rosellas, rainbow lorikeets, grey butcher birds, tawny frogmouths, wood ducks and satin bowerbirds are frequent visitors, as well as the more familiar white cockatoos, galahs, crested pigeons, magpies, kookaburras, mudlarks, and noisy miners. Guest AccessGiven the private entry and facilities in your suite, you can be entirely private if you prefer but the kitchen, laundry, office, garage and main sitting areas of the house are available for you to use if you wish. Reasonable amounts of copying and printing can be undertaken in the office without charge. Interaction with GuestsI'm usually on hand to give you any help that you may need. My son, Matthew, will be available if I'm not around. The NeighborhoodThis part of Garran is very safe and many locals walk in the evening.
Red Hill Nature Park occupies a geographically central position in Canberra/Queanbeyan. It's one of the few remaining substantial remnants of the once-extensive but now endangered yellow box-red gum grassy woodland. The Park is criss-crossed by rough paths which make for interesting walks - or rides, for the more adventurous. There are usually one or two mobs of eastern-grey kangaroos in the Park.
There are excellent views of Canberra from various parts of the Park but especially from the restaurant, from Red Hill (500m to the north) and Mount Davidson (1km to the south).
Marked walking trails have signs describing the wildlife, geology and ecology of the Park.
The two nearby restaurants are readily accessible by foot. The Golf Club welcomes visitors, either for a game or to use the restaurant.
Further afield, but still in easy riding distance, are the trendy restaurants and bars of Manuka. Getting AroundThe nearest bus stop is 1 km away, so you will need to be prepared to walk, ride or drive some distance to get to most places apart from the adjoining Nature Park and Golf Club. However, you can get to the Parliamentary Triangle or the city without changing buses.
Most of Canberra's major tourist attractions are within cycling distance and bikes are available for your use at no charge. Other Things to NoteThis is an LGBT friendly, non-smoking environment.
Your ensuite has a bidet, heated towel rails, and overhead as well as hand shower. The ensuite opens on to the deck, as does your sitting room.
There may be re-arrangements of your suite from time to time but the facilities shown in the photos are always available.
