Usnea, our Nature, Art and Accommodation Space, is situated on the Evelyn Tablelands, Tropical North Qld. It is a fully self-contained one bedroom cottage in upland rainforest, surrounded by natural and established gardens, and at 1,160m provides a cool summer and cosy winter retreat. Uniquely the cottage integrates art within and outside. Contemplation, inspiration, privacy and comfort, are all to be experienced, along with exploring our forest and local environmental and historical features.

El alojamiento
Usnea is a lichen that is very sensitive to air pollution and so is only found growing in clean air environments. Because it is abundant on our property we thought it an appropriate name for our nature, art and accommodation space.

The Natural Space
Our 61 acre property was purchased by us, Ben and Joan, in 1978 with the primary purpose of protecting important high altitude (1,160m) rainforest and its inhabitants. A diversity of plants and wildlife reside along this mountain range, the Hugh Nelson Range, which adjoins the large and complex Herberton Range National Park, a Wet Tropics World Heritage Area (WTWHA). We have a number of well established walking tracks on the property, the highlight of which is the Waterfall Track.

The Residential Space
We are the sole occupants of the property and so it comprises of a discrete residential area built within the confines of an historically altered section of the forest in order to minimise forest clearing. The forest surrounding the residential area is intact. As well as the main home, there are a number of separate buildings including an art studio, study/office, and outdoor living pavilion. A number of landscaped ‘garden’ spaces using both natural forest features and constructed elements are integrated throughout this residential space.

The Guest Cottage Space
The guest cottage is a discretely separate, independent, private accommodation dwelling incorporating outdoor and indoor constructed spaces.

Outdoor Living Space
A timber deck, white rhyolite gravelled court yard, timber screens and potted plants provides an attractive, private garden entrance to the cottage. The easily accessible outdoor timber deck area offers undercover access to the guest cottage as well as the laundry/storeroom, the BBQ area, and an open and comfortable space for the table and chairs.

Laundry/Storeroom
A covered, deck-connected entrance to this separate side room provides for ease of access. It is primarily a utilities and storeroom.

Open Inside Living Space
Glass sliding doors open to this inside space from the timber deck creating a continuous indoor-outdoor connection. It contains a lounge, fully equipped kitchen and dining area. A small library containing a variety of books, and a diverse selection of music CDs should provide adequate reading and music material for the length of your stay. A small pantry of essential and not-so-essential items (tea, coffee, oil, salt, pepper, and more) is there to compliment your own supply of food and drinks. Breakfast provisions are also supplied and include bread, butter, jams, honey, milk, yoghurt, cereals, nuts, fruit and eggs. Subject to seasonal and local availability, breakfast and pantry provisions are predominantly organic and biodynamic products.

Bedroom & Bathroom
This is a one bedroom guest cottage available for use by two people only. It accommodates a king size bed or two single beds - please let us know which arrangement you prefer. All bed linen and pillows are supplied. A walk-in storage space provides adequate room for your luggage and personal clothing. The flat screen TV is for viewing movies only, a selection of which is available for you to choose from.
The bathroom has a separate entrance for access from the open inside living space and bedroom. Towels and essential toiletries are supplied. Extra linen, towels and toiletries are also supplied.

Acceso para huéspedes
Road Access
The residential space in this property is accessible from the Kennedy Highway via a well-constructed forested private road, partly sealed and partly gravelled. It is suitable for all short-wheel base vehicles in all weather conditions. The rural property number is very visible and located on the south side of the entrance gate.

Forest and Garden Access
You are most welcome to explore our forest, sections of which are easily accessible along well established walking trails. Closer to the cottage are our intimate and varied garden spaces, garden ‘rooms’. You are welcome to also explore these but please be aware that they form part of our private residential space and so taking photos is restricted and respect is required.

Evelyn, Queensland, Australia

This property is located in a rural residential area and so neighbouring properties vary from large rural enterprises to those engaged in smaller multiple farming activities, and importantly large conservation estates such as the WTWHA, and smaller private ones such as ours. There are no immediate residents nor buildings other than what is within our own small residential complex.

Ben and Joan We are both very committed to the conservation and protection of this landscape. As a professional sculptor/artist operating from a well-established studio, Ben’s work has been informed and influenced by both the beauty and the challenges of nature and the Australian landscape. As a wildlife scientist and environmental psychologist Joan has been involved in many academic endeavours and research projects related to nature, culture, and the complex inter-relationships between them. We have both travelled and worked in many parts of the world. Our early volunteer work in West Africa and Nepal involved, for Ben, who was with the German Volunteer Service, rebuilding traditional West African art practices and reinvigorating Nepalese teaching requirements. Joan was engaged with a medical team (Britain Nepal Medical Trust), establishing health clinics and treating TB in the eastern part of the Himalayas. On our return to Australia we have continued our commitment to the environment, arts, health and human rights.
