This luxury bed and breakfast farmstay offers three accommodation choices, catering for family get-togethers, romantic weekends away, or simply escaping with friends. Choose from Worendo Homestead (sleeping twelve and pet-friendly), the Treehouse Cottage (sleeping five) or the sought after Wild Lime Cottage which is perfect for romantic couples escapes but can sleep six.

Everything needed for a relaxing and rejuvenating stay is provided and the only decision making required revolves around how to spend the time and what to eat and drink.
Rapidly becoming a food and art mecca, the Scenic Rim offers a great variety of fresh regional produce, making it a real pleasure to cook up a storm in the self contained accommodation.For a small extra charge, delicious breakfast supplies can be provided to get the day off to a great start.
The 90 acre property ensures peace and privacy for guests. Choose to explore this beautiful region or simply soak up the serenity of Worendo. Help with the animal feeding, walk around the property or to the rainforest or hike to Lamington National Park. Worendo's dam is stocked with bass and silver perch, for those keen to enjoy the fun of catch and release fishing. Venture a little further afield and enjoy a picnic and swim at The Hut or at the end of the Lost World Valley.
A scenic drive from Rathdowney to Kyogle via the Border Ranges is also an option, as is four wheel driving along Duck Creek Road to O'Reilly's. Neighbouring properties offer activities including horse riding, dairy tours, whip cracking, billy tea and damper, boomerang throwing and twilight mountain top tours - complete with champagne and orange juice.
Wild Lime Cottage is a beautiful cottage, perfect for two, and has it all. An industrial kitchen which opens onto a timber deck (with breathtaking views), combustion stove for those cool nights, four poster bed, lounge area which also enjoys the view, modern bathroom plus an outdoor shower for the warmer weather. Staying here is a real treat and it really is difficult to leave.
This region is a photographer's dream, so don't forget to pack your camera. Morning and afternoon light play on the mountains and rolling hills, working the kind of magic that is irresistible to shutter bugs. Local birdlife also abounds, making perfect subjects for those holiday snaps. Make sure you have a spare battery for your camera and perhaps a spare memory card.
