Just getting to Possum Valley makes you realise this is the real deal in terms of genuine first growth rain forests experiences. This is 120 acres nestled in a valley surrounded by national park. Amazing and for a true return to life as it once...More

Response from Paul T, Owner at Possum Valley Rainforest CottagesResponded 2 April 2017

Thanks Ron. You get it. I like kids running wild and there is enough space they don't get up the nose of guests in the other cottage. For many kids this is a chance for them to explore on their own as their parents realise...More

Our 5th stay at Possum Valley. Blackbean cottage is very rustic and comfortable but the pillows, sheets, towels, doona covers have seen better days and need replacing. Other than that its an awesome place to sit back and relax. The walks in the rainforest are...More

Response from Paul T, Owner at Possum Valley Rainforest CottagesResponded 17 November 2016

I completely accept your criticism re threadbare linen. Quite true, seen better days. But I have a different view which leads me to assess objects by their utility and functionality rather than by their appearance. I can make minor adjustments to my brain which allows...More

5 for the experience, not so much the lodging. 2 cottages which are basic but actually have everything you need (as others say, no TV). Blackbean is closer to the creek and gives you more chance of a platypus sighting whereas Maple is larger and...More

Response from Paul T, Owner at Possum Valley Rainforest CottagesResponded 4 September 2016

The cabins were booked but Paul kindly let us stay with him. Possum valley is a beautiful place and run by very generous people. Definitely worth a visit. Be sure to walk the trails around the property, visit the meditation hut and keep an eye...More

Response from Paul T, Owner at Possum Valley Rainforest CottagesResponded 8 August 2016

Thanks Jack. And all I have to do is not mess with the environment and let the animals look after themselves. That is all they want and need.

Thank Mick W
Response from Paul T, Owner at Possum Valley Rainforest CottagesResponded 23 May 2016

Hey Mick, I take exception to your accusation of "ridiculously low cost". I prefer to characterize it as modest cost. I think we all in the wealthy countries have to suck our heads in with regard to cost and consumption to keep the planet livable....More
