The bedding, amenities, food and hospitality at the main lodge were 5 star. And yes, we saw lots of the critters advertised - platypuses, turtles, tree kangaroos, paddymelons (mini kangaroos!) possums and... More

We have visited Chilverton Cottages many times and each visit gets better. I loved meandering along the beautiful walking tracks that have been created on the property.
