A High Country Getaway
The Willows provides high country accommodation in the Bundarrah Valley, Anglers Rest. Bounded by Alpine National Park, hilly farmlands and the Bundarrah River it's not only a horseriders paradise but a place to getaway from it all. Accommodation is available in the historic O'Connells Hut, a log cattleman's hut built around 1904. Also available is the converted Shearers Hut, built in the 1940's.
The comfortable rustic, self contained huts are more suited to those who enjoy the outdoor life with woodburners, outdoor toilet, gas lights and bbq facilities. They are both one roomed, open plan with a double and single bed in each. Linen is supplied. The river is a stone's throw away and dogs are welcome.
Due to the remote location there's no mains power. We rely on solar and a small hydro scheme.So no hairdryers! Mobile phones might work,depends on where you stand and which provider you use.And there are no tv's.
There's easy private access to the river for fishing or swimming. The Blue Duck Inn and country pub foof is 3km away, a great place to while away a few hours. The area is steeped in history of the mountain cattlemen, aborigines, goldminers, fishermen and travellers . So there should be something to keep you here for a day or more.
