Travel Information: COVIDSafe Environment

Calm, breathtaking & all you need. Check in and out was simple. The Waterfall Cottage is one we will be back to, cosy, calm and serene. All that was needed was waiting for us. A well needed couple of nights away. We will most certainly be recommending and returning when possible. Thank you Yering Gorge Cottages.” – jorjiabessell (Trip Advisor – December, 2021)
