Blue Bucket is a 27 hectare conservation project property on the western slopes of Danandbilla Range, a National Park. It is just under 2 hours’ drive from Canberra and about the same from Wagga. The residence has electricity, hot water, a septic toilet and is furnished. Only towel and linen need be brought. There is good mobile phone coverage. The main house is 300 m away. Any amount of walking is possible, though the hilly terrain is rocky and the tree-cover dense. Plentiful wildlife, especially birds, comes around the house, the species depending on the time of year.
