The Story of Yelverton Brook

Joy & Simon purchased Yelverton Brook as a 100-acre virgin bush block in 1988 and with a passion for all things nature and a strong organic ethos, their dream was to establish a tourism venture with green ideals. Each of the Lodges & Studios has been lovingly hand-built from sustainably sourced materials and features environmentally sensitive design. They are positioned into existing, natural bushland clearings in order to ensure a low environmental impact and as little disturbance to nature as possible. As a result, each is nestled in an amphitheatre of forest, creating privacy for guests and a feeling of seclusion.

In 2001, with the help of volunteers from the Australian Conservation Trust, they installed a custom-built predator-proof fence surrounding the whole 100 acres. This marked the transformation of the property into a Wildlife Conservation Sanctuary. Yelverton Brook now acts as a safe release site for critically endangered native wildlife and is home to a host of Australian animals, including three critically endangered species. Their work is also helping native Australian flora to thrive, returning the bushland to an ‘Eden status’ which provides a safe haven to over 50 species of birdlife.

We just can't get enough of this place. It's the perfect retreat for anyone. Single? Perfect. Couple? Perfect. Friends? Perfect. Family? Perfect. We come every year as a family, to disconnect from the city life. We get to just sit and enjoy nature, and relax under the stars. Also love a good fungi hunt, this place even has the bioluminescence fungi which was a real treat. Joy and Simon are amazing, and they always have good stories to tell as well. We've had to try other places occasionally due to Joy and Simon taking a much deserved holiday themselves, and can honestly say that nothing has even come close to what Joy and Simon offer. Keep it up!

What a relaxing week at Yelverton Brook! Having no wifi was a bonus ;) though our kids didn’t think so initially. But by the second day they said “we love being surrounded by nature!” We still had access to mobile data tho. Joy and Simon have equipped the cottages with more than we could ask for - whether for cooking / bbq or entertaining ourselves with good ol’ board games and a collection of DVDs. The gentle wild life at our front porch were the highlights every morning and evening. We established a routine where we would sprinkle food twice a day to encourage the animals to visit us. We feel recharged!
