release, restore, revive

We are taking a break!

From December 1st 2023 Spindrift Bush Cottage will suspend its availability for work to upgrade its bush-fire defense capability. If you have a confirmed reservation after this date, don’t worry, we will still be able to welcome you and offer the full Spindrift experience, your booking is safe.

Additional living space and a few extra luxury features are also being considered for an improved Spindrift experience when we reopen.

Work is likely to take us to the end of 2024 or the beginning of 2025.

We are happy to answer any queries you might send us through our email: hello@spindrifter.com.au .
