There are plenty of things to see and do, both at Ripples on the Creek and also in and around the Kyogle area.
At Ripples on the Creek, you have the choice of simply staying in the comfort of your cabin and relaxing the hours away; or alternatively heading out and exploring all the property has to offer. The creek that meanders its way through the property, offers various attractions for our guests - swimming, fishing, bushwalking, and platypus spotting! There is a hill that you can climb for an early morning or late afternoon walk and you will be rewarded at the top with the view of the glorious landscape. We have a range of birdlife and other wildlife on the property, as well as beautiful gardens to explore.
If you want to head out for some sightseeing, then there is a wide range of places to visit.
