Другие важные подробности
In this technological day and age it's worth noting that there is limited phone reception on the property so if this is important to you there's consistent Telstra reception in town for calls and texts.
We only ask that you treat the property and the surrounding bush with the respect it deserves and treat the cottage like your own.
Please take note of days of total fire ban as bushfires are a serious risk in the high country during the summer months.
