Thanks folks for a wonderful holiday! Looking at the impressive list of animals that the kids discovered (and named) during our holiday, makes it clear how much the “city slickers” from Perth / WA enjoyed their stay at Destiny! Thanks a lot of your hospitality, your patience with the kids, the rides through the bush, the jokes from “Curly Tom”, teaching the kids that holidays without TV + Computergames can be fun, and the many tips & help during our stay! Hope to see you soon again.

This is my second time here at Destiny. It is always getting better with every visit. This time all the rain has changed the whole landscape and it looks totally different. All the walking tracks are well maintained and easy to follow. The ride around the property that Heike gave us let us see more of the property than we would see in two days. Destiny is much bigger than I thought. It now feels like my second home. I will be visiting many more times soon. A big thanks to Heike for her time.

After our 5 year old “Nico” met Heike on our first day he called her "the crazy girl" high praise! Host and Cottage very special indeed! We had a stunning, relaxing and wonderful break from the busy city life. Thanks for creating such a special wild life retreat. We loved the donkeys and visited them often on our walks. Herzlichen Dank Heike und wir hoffen Dich bald wieder zu sehen. Alles Gute bis dahin.

U. & R. and special Love for the “crazy girl” from Nico from Ashgrove - Brisbane


We don’t bush walk or ride, but we love to stay in country cottages to take a break from our hectic city lives, and take long relaxing drives in the fresh country air. Destiny Boonah surpassed our expectations. The views are superb, the accommodation is spacious, well equipt, nicely decorated and meticulously clean. We met some of the resident donkeys and Bruno (or was that Benny) and I’m sure that overseas visitors would appreciate the frequent visits from beautiful parrots to the birdbath. It is so peaceful here. Loved it!

Heike, You have certainly thought of everything! Your cottage is beautiful, quanit and charming – we bred the visits from the lorikeets splashing in the birdbath, and we enjoyed wallaby spotting on our walks. Just sitting outside and chatting at one of your begonia decorated tables was relaxing in itself. We are a very busy working family and we appreciated the time and the surroundings to just “chill out” and enjoy each others company. We really appreciate your hospitality. We will be back!

K.& B. from Calamvale - Brisbane


You have thought of everything! A lovely cottage in a lovely setting – Perfect weather, perfect time. Loved the walk at sunrise –and the Looks’ tour in the “Heike” mobile. (Not every 97 year old has this opportunity to take a buggy ride through the bush to view the nature wildlife and animals. We especially loved your donkeys. Bobbie badly wants to buy a donkey now to take home. A special treat for a disabled child! Happy days – Great Buggy Ride

Delightful and so peaceful & quiet to stay what a great way to reduce our carbon footprint without forgoing lifes luxuries. We will be back.

D. & L. from Bundaberg


We had a FABULOUS time. Loved the house, loved the scenery, loved the area & and we wanted to take the donkeys home! Very sad to leave but we’ll be back!

Group from St. John’s Wood Qld


We all had a great time. The children loved the donkeys as did the adults. The tour of the property was a real highlight and we saw heaps of wonderful animals. Thanks again

B. from Toowong / Brisbane


Dear Heike, Your ‘Destiny’ completely reflects yourself & lifts your spirits and fulfils the soul, just as we feel does your own personality! We have all enjoyed our stay, the Pony clubbers will ‘rave’ about their ‘camp-over’ for years to come; ... the trail; the views; the wildlife; the Donkeys! --- and we all leave with heavy hearts but with GREAT memories. Thank you for your efforts on our behalf!
