  • Hi Gail, Is there heating in the Studio room available 31/07 to 03/08? Cheers Andrea
    The whole homestead is heated by a wood fire, but the studio room can have electric fire which looks realistic and helps to warm it internally. It is normally quite comfortable.

Back to the Bush is nestled in 320 acres of peaceful native country side at Woocoo 300kms northwest Brisbane, Queensland. A bush retreat, and Wedding venue in the beautiful rural surrounds of the Fraser Coast. If you feel like going back to a time and place where life was simple, and tranquil, and carefree our place is the place to be. Whether your looking for a secluded retreat or a bush whacking good time, the property offers the magic of a bush backdrop with clear starry nights. Come relax on our wide verandas and enjoy nature at its best. The property features numerous billabongs and water courses and activities include: bush walking and bush crafts; camp fires* and marshmallows for toasting; Our damper recipe or traditional camp oven cooking*. So whether you want to enjoy a book or video from our extensive library, battle your mates in one of our board games or check out the native wildlife, back to the bush will leave you feeling rejuvenated and refreshed. *fire regulations permitting
The property has been my passion for some 30 years, and has been our families 'safe' place, the place where we could leave the world behind. In the early years we built the infrastructure and operated it as a farming enterprise, with beef Cattle and small crops, but today we enjoy it for what it is, and are happy to be able to share the experience. It is a place you never really want to leave, magnificent views of the Milky Way at night, and the chatter of birds in the morning . I have worked in all parts of Australia, and Back to the Bush will always be home.
