It lies on a peninsula adjacent to a bend in a narrow and secluded arm of Lake Tinaroo and is surrounded by lush forest, palm trees of many varieties and flowering plants. Maroobi Park is 5kms by road from the heritage village of Yungaburra, and 4 kms from both the Eacham and Barrine volcanic maar lake National parks. The friendly owners of this 40 acre (17 hectare) paradise 75 kms (1.25 - 1.5 hrs drive) from Cairns International Airport) are an extensively travelled professional couple, who, on discovering this gorgeous location several years ago, decided to retire early so that they could live there rather than just visit. It is very close to numerous places of great beauty such as the enormous and wonderful Cathedral Fig tree (10 kms), the above mentioned volcanic Maar lakes (4 kms), tree kangaroo habitat near the amazing Curtain Fig tree (8 kms), picturesque cinder cones (7 kms), many sites along the edge of Lake Tinaroo and the winter home of ~500 large endangered Sarus Cranes at Bromfield swamp (25kms) whose long legs hang vertically as they fly in close to dusk making marvellous photos. Numerous walking trails through the tropical rainforest lie within a 15 km radius. A WARM WELCOME On arrival you will be greeted with a Devonshire tea on the verandah of the host's residence (Curlew Cottage) or if you prefer, you could enjoy this treat privately on your own verandah at your convenience. WILDLIFE This property is well known for viewing platypus (a primitive marsupial with a duck bill, webbed feet and a beaver like tail), which are visible all day when it is overcast or in the morning and evening when it is not. When the lake level drops due to irrigation sometimes you can watch platypus climb and swim up the rapids under the road bridge in the mornings (between 7.30 and 8AM) and then surf back down them in the evenings (between 6.00 and 6.30PM). Two large and beautiful Bush Stone Curlews are always close by. They are photogenic garden statues by day, occasionally shifting location a little, but become very active at dusk. Large purple Swamp Hens with iridescent purple chests are sometimes visible on the peninsula. Two large and beautiful orange footed scrub fowls which are dark brown in colour with a peaked top knot and iridescent dark blue chests can sometimes be seen early mornings or evenings. A family of 11 Whiptail Wallabies live on the hill adjacent to the driveway into the cabin. They can be seen several days each week early in the morning or late in the afternoon as they prefer to feed and play close by on two 5m wide swathes of cut grass that track straight up the hill from the cabin as well as from the host's residence. They also like to use this cut grass to access the short grass on the lawns for their late night feeds. Weird looking Scrub Turkeys (because of their vertical black tails) wander around sometimes, roosting in the large trees on the lake bank at night. Sebastian (Sebby), a young male with a large bright yellow waddle in mating season, hangs around a lot these days whenever we sit outside. He is quite aggressive towards others of his kind and chases them off. A 200 to 500 flock of shags combine to herd fish up the lake at various times of the year making a considerable amount of noise as they feed during this process. Bandicoots (rather strange marsupials), Betongs, Pademelons and Wallabies can be seen after 10PM with a spotlight torch that we can loan you. Last September, we saw a deer cross the hill side adjacent to the driveway while sitting at the table from which we watch the wallabies near Curlew Cottage. This was a surprise as we knew of no deer in this region. We have not seen it since but unusual scat is still around that may result from it. Kookaburras, Willy Wagtails and Currawongs are always present, Sulphur Crested Cockatoos are commonly attacking passion fruit on vines high in the Forrest on the road into the property and numerous other rainforest birds can be heard/seen as well. We are happy to loan you bird/animal books to help you identify local species. NEARBY ATTRACTIONS Many other attractions lie within a 20 to 50 km radius including the Nerada Tea plantation, Hypipamee Crater, many waterfalls, Granite Gorge (famous for rock wallabies), the Coffee Works (also other plantations), tropical fruit wineries, Herberton Historic Mining Village and museum and so on. There is a thriving art community on the Tablelands (with many galleries) that results in at least one craft and produce market every weekend. All but one market lie within 21 kms with the most well known, that at Yungaburra (on the 4th Saturday of each month), being just 5kms away. We can give you detailed information on our favourite walks around our own place, Lake Eacham, Lake Barrine, Malanda Falls, Hypipamee Crater etc. We are very happy to show you the best sites to take photos and movies of platypus along our lake edge and give you the benefit of our local knowledge on where tree kangaroos may be seen in the surrounding district. We can also let you know when the kangaroos/wallabies are feeding and playing on the swathe of occasionally mowed grass that extends up the hill from our verandah. You can sit in comfort with a glass of wine and watch and photograph them feeding; occasionally the younger ones play by boxing one another up on their hind legs. Two mature females have joeys in their pouches that are very cute to watch if the roos are close. RESTAURANTS AND SHOPS Four restaurants and a cafe lie 5kms away at Yungaburra. There are 4 heritage pubs (which serve great food), many restaurants and numerous shops and supermarkets within 20kms. The nearest place to eat out (burgers etc) is Lake Eacham Road House (open 6am -7pm) which is about 2km away. Yungaburra has a very good doctors clinic, pharmacy, hairdresser, food mart & news agency, post office, butcher shop plus some delightful boutiques and a spa.
