Bellbird Studio is a free standing cabin sheltered beneath a riparian forest canopy situated at the base of Kenilworth Bluff. The property is on the outskirts of Kenilworth in the Heart of the Mary Valley. This is a birdwatchers paradise only 40 mins from Noosa beaches and 20 mins from the famous Eumundi & Yandina Markets.
The studio was originally built by an artist and has been recently renovated to provide a unique "Glamping" experience. Imagine yourself wrapped in our fluffy bathrobes in front of the studio's internal wood heater or watching the stars come out around the outdoor fire.
There is a heated spa and alfresco "bush" shower located on the covered northern deck with private bush views. There is also a flushing septic toilet, indoor shower and vanity on the eastern deck.
The king ensemble with 100% cotton linen will ensure you a luxurious and deep sleep. The internal kitchenette combined with a gas BBQ with side burner on the deck will meet your holiday culinary needs. You have a choice of inside, deck or fireside dining and wining.
We have approximately 30 acres of paddocks & bush available for you and your off leash pets to explore including access to "The Bluff" for the more adventurous. It's been rumored that Greg Postle used to camp here seeking solitude and subjects for his famous paintings as a resident of Kenilworth. A short marked walk commencing from the back of the studio takes you into some of the last remaining privately owned original rain forest in this area containing massive buttress fig trees.
You can tour the Blackall range visiting Mapleton, Flaxton, Monteville and Maleny's many craft shops, gallery's, winerys and restaurants. Then you could continue to the Australian Zoo (20mins from Maleny & 45mins from Kenilworth). Perhaps continue to the Glass House Mountains returning via Woodford and Conondale to Kenilworth.
Many of our guests have enjoyed visiting the small country towns, and their markets, ( Kandanga, Imbil, Dagun,Brooloo and Ammamoor ) of the Mary Valley on their way to Gympie (40mins) and Tin Can Bay (80mins). Ride The Mary Valley Rattler from Imbil to Gympie and back for a different view of the Mary Valley.
The Sunshine Coast is famous for it's markets and of course there is always the Coolum, Noosa, Maroochydoor & Mooloolaba beaches, rivers and lakes to spend the day at. Kenilworth is surrounded by the magnificent National Parks of Noosa, Mapleton and Conondale which provide many walks.
Your get away at the Bellbird Studio can be as relaxing or as active as you want it to be. The possibilities are endless and the choice is yours.
