Welcome to The Bower: rustique rainforest retreat
The Bower is a unique, rustic, retreat, a tiny, tight-knit hamlet of private pavilions for short stays amongst regenerating rainforest at Wootha, in the hinterland of Queensland’s Sunshine Coast.
Located only 10 minutes drive from Maleny and 20 minutes to Woodfordia, The Bower boasts a secluded setting, sensuous surrounds, beautiful bird life, and a cool bush pool; a perfect, peaceful place to refresh, rejuvenate, revive and recharge. You can also treat yourself to one of many nearby secret – and not-so-secret – walks in and around the Blackall Range, where you can immerse in stunning sunsets and indulge in incredible views of the Glass House Mountains and Conondale Ranges.
Each pavilion at The Bower includes a sumptuous bed with fine linen, a private bathroom, compact chef’s kitchen, and simple, elegant, immensely comfortable lounging areas. Each pavilion also has its own quirky character.
The ‘couple’s cabin’ is the largest of the pavilions – a Swiss-style chalet – where you can enjoy the abundant bird life from your private deck, soak in the antique clawfoot bath, lose yourself in the celestial clerestory views, and during Winter, relax in front of the warm, wood burning fireplace.
The ‘glamper’s shack’ is the smallest pavilion, a quintessential tiny house on wheels – a masterpiece of contemporary micro-small space design – where you can kick back on the veranda and take in the beautiful bush views, feed one of our visiting King Parrots, and cuddle up and roast marshmallows around the outdoor fire-place.
The ‘writer’s hut’ is the mid-sized pavilion, the original and best, picture-perfect pioneer’s cottage – a quiet haven and hideaway, a small sanctuary and escape – especially fitted out and furnished for reflection and re-creation, sensational in Winter warmed by a wood burning firebox.
Enjoy a light continental breakfast on the first morning of your stay. Breakfast supplies (tea, plunger and espresso coffee, juice, cereal, fruit, yoghurt and toast) are in your pavilion for you to enjoy at your leisure and are included in the booking price. The pool is shared between the property homeowners and other special guests at The Bower.
