Arborlee Rainforest Retreat

is an affordable rainforest sanctuary situated high in the Border Ranges overlooking the Condamine River Gorge. It is 2.5 to 3 hours drive from Brisbane. The drive covers some very scenic country. The closest town is Killarney 25mins and Warwick 40mins. The small settlement of Mt. Colliery is 7 kilometres down the mountain.

Special Features:

The special features of Arborlee are birds, frogs, plants, fungi and other wildlife of the rainforest setting, the peaceful atmosphere, retreat context without other tourists, guided walks and scenic views. The setting is perfect for the bird watcher, amateur botanist, artist and photographer. We share this sanctuary with Australia’s rare Albert’s Lyrebird and many other uncommon birds. See the Bird, Frog and Plant lists.

Guest Unit:

The Guest Unit opens through French doors onto a verandah and views to the rainforest. The unit is self contained with two burner gas stove, bar frig, sink, cooking utensils, ensuite, a king bed or two long singles, linen and blankets provided and made ready for your first night. The phone is available.

We will usually be at home on the other side of the house and are available as needed. We will offer you space and privacy or you are welcome to join us for drinks on the verandah. Guided walks can be arranged around the property.

We are familiar with the local and district sites and drives and are only to happy to help you plan your visit to the area. Pets are not allowed at Arborlee.


Summer 20deg – 28deg (cooler than surrounding area). Winter 0deg –20 deg. We occasionally get a light frost but the days are warm. When wet we often become surrounded by mist. It is definitely cooler than Brisbane and jumpers and coats need to be thrown in even in summer.


With retirement around the corner we bought 42 ha of rainforest. We have now protected this area under a Nature Refuge Conservation Agreement. The house is built on a terrace, an area that was partly cleared prior to our buying the land. The area was used for timber getting since late 19th century and snigging tracks, wire rope and large old stumps are some of the remaining signs of this.
