Overview

About the property

Kanimbla View Clifftop Retreat is located on one of the most beautiful properties in the World Heritage-listed Blue Mountains, just 90 minutes from Sydney.

Surrounded on three sides by unspoilt Crown bushland, you feel like you are staying in your own private National Park. Yet you are only 3 minutes away from beautiful Blackheath village.

The Guardian has featured Kanimbla View as one of the 30 "best green places to stay around the world" -- and the only one in Australia. Kanimbla View is one of only 7 eco-retreats to be featured in the Sydney Morning Herald Good Weekend 52 Weekends Away 2014.

Kanimbla View offers stylish, distinctive and comfortable accommodation -- from budget to eco-luxury.

We cater for couples, families and groups of up to 22. Groups (minimum 12) are accommodated in our two three-bedroom eco-cottages (two bedrooms in each can be configured as Kings or singles, the third bedroom contains a double and single bed). Couples or families requiring a single cottage should contact the owners for a quote.

The retreat is ideal for holidays, celebrations, conferences and yoga retreats.

It also has an all-weather tennis court, boules pitch and 1.3 km of walking tracks.

There really is peace in this place.

Getting out and about

On the retreat itself you can play tennis, basketball or table tennis under a cathedral of gum trees. You might wander down to the boules/petanque area for a quiet game, or sit out on the heath deck and just drink in the distant views.

But most important you will want to explore our walking tracks and make your way down to your own private clifftop lookouts on our escarpment. With the aid of our maps and leaflets you can get to know a bit more about how this fragile environment can support such an abundance of plants and animals.

Beyond the retreat

If you want to go further afield than the retreat, then we are only 3 minutes away from Blackheath's excellent cafes, restaurants, galleries and bakeries. Another 5 minutes and you will find yourself at the doorstep to the Greater Blue Mountains National Park. The park offers some wonderful lookouts and walking tracks. But just a few minutes away from the retreat you can discover some equally inviting walks and views around Porter's Pass and Centennial Glen.

Beyond Blackheath you might take in a great film at Mt Victoria's welcoming, old-fashioned cinema at Mt Vic Flicks. Further west lie the Jenolan Caves. To the east you can explore more of the Blue Mountains bordering charming villages like Leura or Wentworh Falls.

Amazing weekend away!

  • 5 of 5

Exquisite location with short walks on the property to amazing lookouts and much to do and see in the local area (including local apple orchid with delicious apple pies and warm spiced apple juice within walking distance). Was the perfect setting to celebrate with 20 friends, with great communal areas to enjoy each other's company and plenty of space to spread out and enjoy quiet time relaxing.

Highlights include amazing fireplaces, commercial kitchen and tennis court. No neighbours nearby so you really feel secluded with your own private space, excellent stereo system in the communal lodge was great for the music lovers! Don't look past this wonderful property!

Excellent Property

  • 5 of 5

Eighteen people comprising three generations spent the past weekend at Kanimbla celebrating our 50th Wedding Anniversary.

The venue was ideal – room to spread, and then convene together in the Adobe. Wood fires, dinner on arrival, Red Pepper catering for the big dinner on Saturday night and the entire place to ourselves. Everything was perfect. A dream come true. Thank you Nigel and Tony for your professionalism, and personal touch.
