Perfect for the extended family get together. Crebra easily sleeps 10 and then can expand to 14 with sofa beds.
The Albert River sits just below you has long pools, banks to picnic and relax on, and fishto be caught. It is a favorite for sport fishing Bass and Mary River Cod – other fish include Eel Tailed Catfish, Eels and Carp. If you are very quiet you may even see our resident platypusplaying in the early mornings or late evenings.
Crebra is just 1.5 hours from both Brisbane and the Gold Coast - just 20 minutes from Beaudesert and nestled in the hills of the Lost World region of the Scenic Rim, Queensland.
Did you know that we are also in the footprint of one of “Australia’s National Landscapes”, The Green Cauldron. By embracing the Rainforest Way you can follow one of the most spectacular drives through our region.
Once you are here there is plenty to do if you are feeling active and plenty of great spots to do nothing if that is what you prefer. Follow the winding cattle tracks, sketch the Jinbroken Range in the west, spy on the platypus, walk and fish along the river for a kilometre or two or simply unwind with a wine in front of the fireplace. There are great verandahs front and back too, so you will never tire of the view
Crebra is fully self contained. It is well equipped with cookware, linen, DVD and stereo. All you need to do is bring your own food and drink and settle into the peaceful surroundings.

We are approximately 22.39 kilometres south of Beaudesert (Set your trip metre at the traffic lights in the centre of town). Travel south from Beaudesert on Kerry Road (Not Mt Lindesay Hwy!). You are on the right road if you pass the golf club on the left. Don’t take any side roads. A warning sign that you are getting close is Duck Creek Bridge and 2239 Kerry Road (there is a sign saying concealed entrance) is the third house on the left past the bridge. The driveway is on the left, is clearly numbered 2239 with our rural numbering system and the blue mailbox has Crebra written on it. If you find yourself at Darlington Park – you have travelled too far – simply turn around, cross Darlington Park bridge, Ward Bridge and we are then the first house on the right.
