The Property

Jimmy Doo is is a renovated old farm house in quite a remote location . We rely entirely off rain water so guests are encouraged to be mindful of water usage and reduce the length of their showers to avoid running out of water during their stay. The water is safe to drink.

We are very lucky to have plenty of beautiful wildlife here at Jimmy Doo, including kangaroos, wallabies, deer and brumbies. Hunting is not permitted.

We have a small functional training studio located underneath the house for guests to access at their own leisure

There is unlimited Starlink satellite internet available.

At the house itself, there is plenty of outdoor entertaining space on deck, including a large table to seat up to 30 guests, with a pizza oven, outdoor fire, bbq and kitchen. Up on the hill, we have another outdoor picnic area that enjoys incredible views of the sunrise and sunset. There are plenty of activities like archery, mountain bike trails and trampolines for you to enjoy.

Feel like enjoying some downtime inside? We’ve got Foxtel, Netflix, a cinema room and ultra-high speed internet for your free use. The Sauna is the perfect place to warm up after a day on the slopes.

Unfortunately, Jimmy Doo is not wheelchair accessible.

There is plenty of firewood available at the property for you to use during your stay.

The turn-off for Jimmy Doo is located on Alpine Way. There is a 4km dirt (unsealed) road to access the property, so some low cars may not be suitable.
