Welcome to Wattle Flat Cottage, a modern, self-contained 2-bedroom unit on our 5-acre block in Darwin’s peaceful rural area.

30 mins from Darwin city, 25 mins from airport and 1hr to Litchfield and fishing hot spots.

The light, airy cottage is set in peaceful shady gardens with birds, wildlife and our friendly chooks (fresh eggs included!).

Your own large fenced yard with space for caravan/vehicles. Perfect for travellers to rest, wash clothes and sleep in comfy beds and crisp sheets.

The space
The cottage is fully air conditioned and has everything you need. Sleeps up to 4, with a QS bed in each bedroom. Access to bathroom is through main bedroom.

Fully equipped kitchen with coffee machine, quality towels, 1000 TC linen, TV, and breakfast on day 1: bacon, eggs, bread, cereal, milk, ground coffee and spreads. Washing machine and clothesline/clothes horses.

Our family lives in the main house on the block (60m from cottage). We have two kids and 3 friendly dogs, who love a pat but won't bother you. We also have three geese, about 50 chickens and a pony. No pets, please.

The property has an electric front gate. We will check you in personally to give you access. Some days, check-in time will need to fit with our work commitments.

Families welcome (note there’s an unfenced private pool behind the main house, well away from cottage).

The cottage is centrally located between Darwin city and famous attractions further out.

Perfect for people visiting friends/family who live in the area (Humpty Doo, Howard Springs, Palmerston and further out too).

Darwin city: 30 mins, an easy drive
Airport: 25 mins
Palmerston: 15 mins
Litchfield National Park: 1 hour
Adelaide River jumping croc cruises: 20 mins
Kakadu: 2.5 hours
Kmart, Coles and Woolworths + 4 shopping centres and restaurants/cafes: all within 10 mins drive
Local golf club restaurant (our favourite): 4 mins
6 service stations within 10 mins.

Our guests have told us they love:
- our property's space, peace and quiet
- the green lawns and manicured gardens
- the room in the cottage to spread out and relax
- the modern kitchen and bathroom with everything you need
- our freshly laid eggs
- the breakfast supplies and other staples in the pantry
- the many species of birds on the block (‘twitchers’ were blown away by the birds!)
- how quick and easy it is to get anywhere: into Darwin city (30 mins) and our proximity to national parks further out (30 mins closer than Darwin city is!).
