Welcome to Gap Creek Hideaway - a beautiful place to stay where the forest meets the city

Our Cottages


We are pleased to offer you outstanding accommodation and facilities at our unique secluded forest retreat located on the edge of Brisbane Forest Park where you are close enough to Brisbane to enjoy and access all its exciting offerings, yet away from the hustle and bustle of city living.


Grey Gum and Lillypilly are fully furnished and fully self-contained cottages, close to schools and shops yet secluded and private, adjacent to Brisbane Forest Park on the western foothills of Mt-Coot-tha. The architecturally designed purpose built houses offer a beautiful and peaceful place to stay making the most of this tranquil location which is a five minute drive from Kenmore Shopping Village, 10 minutes from Indooroopilly Shopping Town and 20 minutes from Brisbane CBD. They are ideally suited for corporate guests, couples or families relocating to Brisbane, people in-between houses, when refurbishing your home or simply for a quiet get-away.
