The Whimsy, a 1900s miners cottage on the edge of the rainforest, is ready to welcome you to create memories you will treasure long after your visit.

Whatever your whimsy- adventure, exploring, relaxation, waterfalls, wilderness, mountain biking, hiking, fossicking or just curling up by the fire...The Whimsy in Weldborough is the perfect place to stay.

The MTB trails at Weldborough are spectacular and include the world class Blue Tier, Big Chook (the only Australian MTB trail listed in Trail Forks 2023 top 10 MTB trails) and Little Chook (a beautiful green trail for all the family). The trail head for the Atlas trail is also just a few kilometres away.

From The Whimsy you can ride directly to Little Chook and Big Chook trails located off Emu Flat Road behind the Weldborough Hotel, and with the Hotel only a 5 minute walk from The Whimsy there are a number of shuttle services that can be booked to pick up from the hotel for the Blue Tier or Bay of Fires Trail Head. Shuttles to the Atlas trail can also be organised to pick up from the Hotel and the Atlas trail runs down to Derby where the rest of the Blue Derby trail network can be accessed.

The cottage has 3 bedrooms including the main bedroom with a queen bed and the other bedrooms with 2 king singles in each.
