The Bli Bli House experience is designed to make you feel like you are staying in your own home. Take the time to walk around the historic house and explore the original part of the house; the Library, Media and Pool rooms and the Guest lounge in the newer wing. These areas are for you to enjoy anytime during your stay and the house is full of a collection of art and antiques.
A LITTLE ABOUT THE HISTORY
Attention to history and Victorian elegance was the theme throughout the years we refurbished Bli Bli House. We studied and learnt much about house styles of the nineteenth century to reproduce such a masterpiece. The formal dining room was the first restored, featuring Victorian elegance with dining tables draped with full length linen table cloths, silver cutlery, candelabras, and a crystal chandelier adorning the 14-foot ceiling. Then the fully self-contained garden cottage followed by the guest wing including the Grande hallway, two guest suites, guest lounge, surround verandas and balconies decorated with authentic wrought iron balustrade, and heritage cornicing to reflect the era. Lastly the pool room on the first floor along with the media room and reading parlour were fully restored and refurbished. A rainforest theme was reproduced throughout the gardens to reduce the carbon footprint with educational posters for guests to wonder through and read at their leisure.

We are totally on tank water so we appreciate you using it sparingly. At different times of the year the water in the spa baths may look a little cloudy. This is due to the Tanium from the surrounding gum trees. It is totally clean as our water goes through a triple filtration system but it does not always remove all the cloudiness.
