Welcome to the Bower 'rustique rainforest retreat'

The Bower is a tiny hamlet of private pavilions at Wootha in the hinterland of Queensland’s Sunshine Coast. Commencing in 1984 on a totally cleared paddock, The Bower has grown from a 15 square metre tiny house, through to a series of compact detached pavilions, built as a growing family dictated and a growing income and equity in the property allowed. The Bower is now nestled amongst regenerating rainforest with an abundant birdlife.

The Bower now includes a ‘writer’s hut’ (the original tiny house ‘weekender’), a ‘couple’s cabin’ (the second pavilion, once the ‘family room’, now a Bnb), a ‘manager’s lodge’ (the third – once the bedroom – pavilion), a ‘glamper’s shack’ (the fourth, and moveable, pavilion, now a Bnb), and a ‘traveler’s taverna’ (a pool house for ‘one for the road’, getting back to the Bower). Each private pavilion features an eclectic and unique mix of rustic and luxurious – ‘rustique’ – fittings and furnishings.

Treat yourself to a peaceful getaway..

    Yellow-tailed black cockatoo, Wompoo fruit dove, Ba-shouldered dove, White-headed pigeon, Emerald dove, Levin's honeyeater, Spotted pardalote, Golden whistler, Rainbow lorikeet, Kind parrot, White-throated treecreeper.

    "We have loved this beautiful little cabin. Our son had a great time exploring on the balcony and discovered a passion for piano. Relaxing on the balcony listening to the birds is a precious thing for new parents who don't get to relax often.
    Many thanks - we'll be back."
