Dayboro Cottages

Dayboro

Dayboro Cottages and Llama Walks is a unique escape situated on a lofty ridge in Dayboro. Just a 45 minute drive from Brisbane's CBD, the cottages are perfectly located for those who are looking to leave the hustle and bustle of the city behind, without the lengthy travel time that some country escapes require.

With spectacular views over the Dayboro Valley from each cottage, relaxing on the deck over a meal or a drink is a real pleasure. Cottages have their own BBQs on the deck and all cooking utensils are provided.  In fact, all guests need to bring with them is their food, drink and clothes.

A very comfortable king size bed, beautiful linen and feather doona and pillows all ensure a peaceful night's sleep. If it happens to rain, the sound of rain on the tin roof is as good as any lullaby. A full laundry is very cleverly concealed in the cottage, should visitors be lucky enough to be having a long stay.  A dining setting for two and a comfortable lounge area (complete with CD player and digital TV) round off this home away from home. Undercover parking is available for one car per cottage.

There is one more thing that really makes the Dayboro Cottages special and that's the herd of resident llamas. Guests can watch these characters from their decks or get up close and personal, feeding them or even leading them on a walk through some of the property's 85 acres. A minimum of 6 people are required for the walk to go ahead and it takes between one and one and a half hours to complete, ending with afternoon tea in the garden.

Llamas are placid creatures and interact well with humans so a stroll with them, overlooking the valley is a relaxing treat.  Did you know that llamas have only two toes on each foot?  They also have a soft pad underneath their feet which means there is very little impact on the environment as they walk.

Guests are advised to pack long pants (or jeans), a t-shirt, hat, water bottle and closed in shoes or hiking boots to do the llama walk. A camera is a must too, as this area is a photographer's dream. Llama walks need to be booked and cost $35 per person, including afternoon tea.

Another unique feature at Dayboro Cottages and Llama Walks is the Pizza Yurt. Guests are welcome to make and cook their own pizzas (cooking takes approx 20 minutes for each pizza) with either their own supplies or an ingredient kit can be purchased from Reception. Cooking kits which include trays, utensils, spray etc are available for a refundable deposit of $20. Another optional extra is a choice of breakfast baskets, ranging in price from $20 - $50.

Managers, Maryanne and Ed Kelly, are only too happy to suggest places of interest for those who are keen to discover Dayboro, or alternatively visitors can call in to Dayboro Cottage (27 Williams Street, Dayboro) where volunteers of the Historical Society will be only too happy to suggest "must-do" things to see and do in the area such as a visit to The Pitstop Cafe with its jaw-dropping views and quirky memorabilia, a lovely rainforest walk or exploratory day trip.
