Water Gums Retreat is an ideal getaway for couples, families and small groups seeking a secluded natural retreat within easy reach of the Barrington Tops and three-and-a-half hours’ drive from Sydney. The well-equipped four-bedroom mudbrick and timber house is nestled among trees overlooking the Barrington River and a private backwater. When you book a stay at Water Gums you have the whole house and property to yourselves.
The 16-hectare property enjoys a 320m frontage to the Barrington River and among its most appealing features is a pair of billabongs close to the house which are magnets for wildlife of many kinds. Platypus are commonly seen in the early morning and around dusk. Swim and paddle in summer, relax with a drink in front of the fire in winter and enjoy the wonderful wildlife all year round. Water Gums is a great base-camp for exploring all that the Gloucester region has to offer.
