Seclusion and privacy, beside the pristine rapid-filled headwaters of Christmas Creek  - Wongari is an intimate romantic retreat bordering World Heritage Lamington National Park and only 90 minutes from Brisbane and the Gold Coast.  Think  lazing in a hammock under the rainforest  canopy, reading a book or watching the birds, swimming in the private rapid-filled rock pools of their creek or roasting marshmallows on a fire under the stars.

For the more adventurous, there's plenty of opportunity to explore. Wongari sits nestled in a spectacular gorge setting, with gentle walks on their property along Waterfall Creek  and Christmas Creek and also into Lamington National Park's wilderness section. The renowned Stinson Grave and Wreck walks are easily accessed, although a guide is recommended if you're not an experienced walker.

Serenity Cabin sits in its own private 10 acre section of their property, with 200 metres of private frontage to Christmas Creek, so you're guaranteed not to be disturbed.  The holiday cottage is fully self-contained with a wood oven, rainforest deck, king-sized bed and a glass-enclosed shower overlooking  rainforest garden.
