OLE44851656 - Note: Words are inadequate to explain how unique and special this property is, so I've tried to show as many photos as possible on the regular websites. To see individual photos, please click on or type in this link to my website: Watching the aerial drone video (arrow) will help you understand the layout of the property. Magnificent Riverside Retreat is an eco-tourism, short-stay holiday retreat set on 23ha/57ac in one of the most idyllic settings in the Great Southern. It's a unique piece of real estate boasting 500m of Frankland River frontage on the southern boundary with an approximate 150m width opposite the main homestead. The property is a bird watcher's paradise including rare Tawny Frogmouths. A vast variety of wildlife including resident quokkas and honey possums thrive in the natural setting while wildflowers and rare orchids like the Flying Duck can be found during spring. Dolphins often come up the river to chase fish in the shallows. It's an unforgettable experience to witness whether you're in the water, on the jetty or riverbank or from the comfort of the large glass-fronted living area in the main residence. The Frankland River is a major stream that commences well inland at Tambellup and winds through the forest area then passes the property to the Nornalup Inlet approximately 3 km downstream. The Inlet is a large area open to the Southern Ocean all year round and no other inlets along the south coast have this feature. It's truly significant because recreational craft are able to have access to the river and ocean for fishing. A large variety of species are caught all year round, together with crabs during the summer months. This property offers 6 self-service chalets. Four secluded two-bedroomed chalets positioned closer to the river originally built in 1996, and two 1999 built three-bedroomed units on the higher slopes of which one is wheelchair friendly and the other has an enclosed sunroom/patio. There is also a two-bedroomed caretaker's house in a private position with river and forest views plus a large 5-bedroom, 3-bathroom owners' residence in prime position meters from the river, enjoying spectacular views. The current owners live on the property so have the reception area at the main residence though it's easy enough to move if you prefer to employ a manager and/or caretaker. The property is situated close to the boundary of Denmark and Walpole, just off the South Coast Highway with a myriad of top tourist attractions within easy reach to explore ensuring a steady flow of visitors for the chalets all year round. Walpole is a mere 10-minute drive away, Denmark a scenic 40 minutes' drive while the City of Albany is roughly an hour and 20 minutes' drive from the property. A shortlist of the top tourist attractions within easy drive includes the Tree Top Walk, ancient Giant Tingle Trees, Mount Frankland National Park and Walpole-Nornalup National Park. The popular long-distance hiking and cycle tracks - the Bibbulman and Munda Biddi pass right to the north of the property making it an ideal stop-over for adventure tourists. You also have the Bibbulman Track, The Right with its monstrous waves, Conspicuous Cliffs, Peaceful Bay, Williams Bay, Green's Pool, Elephants and Monkey Rock all roughly within a half an hour drive. Fernhook Falls, Mandalay Beach, the Circular Pool in the Frankland River, Nornalup Inlet, the Hilltop Lookout and Monastery Landing all provide exquisite scenery and stunning photo opportunities. Lots of new development in the area will attract even more visitors. The Great Southern Adventure Trails Project is a State Government Recovery Plan initiative, investing $15 million in new and upgraded trails, visitor facilities and infrastructure. Project works and funding will be staged over the project period to June 2024. The latest update is for $6 million worth of projects in the Department of Biodiversity, Conservation and Attractions (DBCA's) Warren Region, which includes the Denmark and Manjimup local government areas. The plan includes Valley of the Giants trail networks and an ancient empire trail extension at the Tree Top Walk plus an upgrade of paddle craft launch and landing facilities at Nornalup and Monastery Landing with a key objective to have the State's first paddle craft launch structure suitable for Parapaddlers. It also includes upgrades and extensions at William Bay that will become the new Munda Biddi Trail. This section of trail will form part of the Wilderness Ocean Walk Trail and will cater for wheelchairs, prams and disabled people. A viewing platform will be constructed above Elephant Rocks. A few popular activities include wilderness cruises, wildflower and orchids (August to end October), bird watching, fishing, swimming, kayaking, surfing, nature photography, and even hang-gliding and paragliding at Point Hillier Parry Beach for the more adventurous types. There are also numerous outstanding wineries, restaurants, and art galleries to visit in the region. Magnificent bike and walking trails are always popular in our cooler climate and there are many to suit all ages and capabilities. The list of exciting things to see and do is truly endless This is what memories are made of so consider making a sea change before it's too late. Riverside Retreat's chalets are well-spaced over the property for maximum privacy and enjoyment. The block is dry except for a couple of minor wet areas like the big dam at the main entrance and 2 soaks. The highest point is approximately in the middle of the block with gentle slopes and stunning views in all directions, especially southwards towards the river. Six self-service chalets offer total peace and tranquillity and are an affordable and secluded base for many visitors to relax and unwind while enjoying nature at its best. The chalets
