SCENIC RIM BUSHWALKING - DISCOVER & CLIMB MOUNT MAROON
Tuckeroo Cottages have an absolutely stunning grandstand view of Mount Maroon.
Sunrise on Mount Maroon is especially spectacular.
From the first pale light of dawn, the morning sunlight first touches the tops of the mountain then slowly makes its way down the mountain side until it reaches Tuckeroo Cottages, changing hue as each minute passes.
Tuckeroo Cottages provides the ideal self contained accommodation for you to discover Mount Maroon.
