Feathertail Nature Refuge
Dry rainforest cloaks the gullies and is laden with several species of ferns as well as crows nests, staghorns and orchids. It is a haven for many species of small birds
Rain transforms the stream into a series of waterfalls and rapids. Several pools remain all year to nurture wildlife.
Twenty five kilometres from Brisbane CBD, it borders D’Agular National Park with access to long and short scenic trails. Because of its natural values and forest beauty, it is a declared QLD Gov Nature Refuge. An annual cash assistance payment of up to 95% of rates is available subject to compliance with covenant conditions.
Upper Brookfield nestles high and dry among cooling Summer breezes. Few properties in Brisbane offer this much tranquility and privacy.
The two-story steel pole frame home (plus under-house car parking) is crafted to blend into its background. It is very open with three spacious bedrooms and combined dining / lounge room. Plenty of large windows and floor to ceiling glass panels facilitate the forest views. Decks off all upper story bedrooms ensure gorgeous living with an intoxicating tree-house feel!
A large rear deck on the lower level is a perfectly private entertainment space close to the dry rain forest. All you can hear is cicadas and birds; all you see is nature.
Eighteen solar panels and high storage batteries power this highly energy efficient house – no power or water bills here.
There is no cleared land away from house’s small yard and all remaining vegetation is protected by Brisbane City Council and State Government covenants.
