Ironbark on the Tableland

Fancy a country escape?  Just 1 hour and 30 mins drive west of Cairns is where you will discover the natural beauty of Ironbark House.  Set on a large cattle farming property in Dimbulah, Ironbark House is a brand-new modern retreat offering a truly authentic outback Australian experience.

Ironbark House is completely private, yet the property caretakers are just a kilometre away should you require any assistance during your stay.  The house is fully self-contained with a full kitchen and modern conveniences, including TV but the highlight is the location and the never ending views over the dramatic country landscape.  This is a place where you will just sit and watch and wait for a bird to sound in the distance, or for a Wallaroo to gently bound up to the water feature by the verandah.  Have your camera handy and enjoy endless sunsets with a glass of wine or two.

Adventure more your thing?  The caretakers are offering guided horse rides on the property.  Or take a drive to a nearby mining town like Chillagoe, famous for its marble.

Whichever adventure you choose, a stay at Ironbark House will leave you feeling relaxed and energised.
