 We had a nice visit to @pomonadistilling_co today & loved the look of the new distillery. Perfectly located & only an easy 25 min drive from @melawondispringretreat 🥂 #pomonaqueensland #pomonadistillingco  Feeling a little fresher & looking a little greener after 28mm of nice soaking steady rain during the night ☔️ . . . #thankyoufortherain #visitgympieregion #discovermaryvalley

 Travelling home along the Kandanga-Imbil Road last night around 8.15pm & this little fella was in the middle of road. We managed to move him to the roadside with the help of a lovely lady by the name of Sarah from the @therattlercafe who stopped to help us! We waited to ensure he was safe going up the tree nearby ... just the cutest little fella! Please slow down for our wildlife  #koalas #discovermaryvalley #koalalove  Perfect way to end the long weekend ... a beautiful & nice glass of chilled Pinot Grigio  . . #discovermaryvalley #southeastqueensland
 As many parts of the region are experiencing the current dry conditions, we are also very dry but fortunate to still have a couple of dams with water... as this little fella was on his way to visit 🥰 We have seen an increase of koalas & many other wildlife at our retreat during the dry months  We ask our guests to please slow down during your stay & others visiting the beautiful Mary Valley & surrounding country roads as we have noticed an increased amount of wildlife on the move in the search for water! #prayingforrain #discovermaryvalley #loveourwildlife  Storm just passed with another 12mm rain in the gauge ☔️⛈ . . . .#rain #discovermaryvalley #visitgympieregion #thankyoufortherain #southeastqueensland
