Renovated historic Queensland C1898 Schoolhouse, open plan eclectic decorated interior with soaring timber ceilings. The perfect enjoyable stay in a botanic garden setting.

Situated in the rolling hills of beautiful Greens Creek, it is just a few kilometres east of Gympie just off Tin Can Bay Road. The gateway road to Rainbow Beach and Fraser Island.

You can sit on the two wide schoolhouse timber verandas with a beverage as you choose and overlook the scenery and our wonderful birdlife.

The space
The huge open spaced interior of the historic schoolhouse is decorated in an eclectic mix open plan style, and framed by huge schoolhouse windows each end of the open space. Eclectic interior style for discerning guests, with a beautiful Blackbutt polished timber floor.
A home away from home...furnished to make you feel at home and relaxed. Internet connection. TV and radio provided.
If you wish to have a hit of tennis on the rural unmarked court you are welcome. Racquets and balls are available...at no cost!
