Welcome to the "Edelweiss"
B&B / Self contained Chalet and Budget Accommodation
(Also listed under TRIPADVISOR)
The owners, Lucy and Jack, both of Swiss origin, welcome you to the ''Edelweiss'' with its friendly and quiet environment in the heart of the South Burnett Tourism region in South East Queensland. Lucy and Jack give the B&B a special feeling of European hospitality and Australian welcome.
The B&B was named after the rare Swiss alpine flower Edelweiss which has become world famous through the endearing movie ''The Sound of Music''.
The road to the "Edelweiss" is well signposted. The B&B is located 4.5 km north of the Blackbutt town centre. It is nestled on a 2 ha property, among towering blackbutts and an ancient stand of grass trees. Many flowering shrubs provide a haven for local wildlife and are visited by a multitude of colourful birds such as honey-eaters, lorikeets, wrens, king parrots, kookaburras and cockatoos. At dusk, wallabies sneak in to graze - with a bit of luck, you can watch them from your terrace.
Edelweiss B&B is a unique establishment where our guests can enjoy the calm and serenity of the countryside whilst receiving quality service at affordable prices. It is registered and listed with TRIPADVISOR, check their website for further information (see 'Links' section).
Our region offers a wide variety of places to see, things to do, possibilities to practise your favourite sport or visit a winery. For detailed information, consult our 'Links' section, unlock the "Magic of the South Burnett", discover the Brisbane Valley Rail Trail, go hiking in the Bunya Mountains National Park or spend an evening stargazing at the Maidenwell Observatory (moving to Kingaroy approx. March 2015). The bustling city of Brisbane, the Garden City Toowoomba and the sweeping beaches of the Gold and Sunshine Coasts lay within easy reach - just a 2 hour drive away.
Lucy and Jack are confident that you will enjoy your stay as much as they will enjoy your company.
