Country air, country life... You will stay in a unique Queenslander which is now over 100 years old. Polished floors and high ceilings are part of the building's charm. Immerse yourself in the day to day life of a small country town and get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday living. Don't be fooled by the quiet appearance of this town, there is plenty to do if you know where to look. Fancy a trip to a local winery? What about a walk through a National Park where bird life abounds and the creek bubbles alongside the track.

What about checking out the history in the local Museum? You can have a beer at a genuine country pub. If you are a runner or a cyclist, Kilkivan is the place for you. You can amble along country roads with views that will take your breath away. You can step back in time and go to the drive-in picture theatre in good weather. You can do as much or as little as you want. Just come, you won't be disappointed.
