Bonnie the Bird Bus - $100 per night


“Bonnie” is a beautiful 1974 bus that has been converted into self-contained accommodation.

Named after the striking Blue Bonnet parrots you’re likely to see during your stay, Bonnie is tucked away amongst the gum trees. Her height conveniently puts you at eye level with the many birds that frequent the property. Here’s some of the gorgeous birds you might encounter.

This surprisingly expansive and bright space contains two single beds, a kitchenette, and lounge with books and games - everything you need to relax and enjoy the peaceful surroundings.

Make the most of the outdoor seating to soak up the famous Mallee sunsets, while toasting a marshmallow over a crackling campfire. With the fantastic large windows and zero light pollution you can go to sleep gazing up at the Milky Way.
