Arinya Lodge - Mountaintop Wilderness Escape

Bedrooms 2
Property type lodge
Minimum Stay 1 - 3 nights


About the property

Great news - the ever-popular Arinya Lodge now has new Managers, who are proud to announce that they have nothing to offer …

Nothing but a stunning million dollar view right across to the distant Barrington Tops ... nothing but beautiful, unspoiled, natural surroundings and an abundance of native Australian birds and wildlife …

Nothing but comfort, cosiness, privacy and peace ... along with everything you could want for a truly rewarding, relaxing break.

Set in 12 unspoilt acres on an award-winning mountaintop wilderness resort in the Upper Hunter Valley, Arinya Lodge is perfect for romantic weekends and great escapes.

This idyllic, recently refurbished lodge has 2 double Bedrooms, a large fully-equipped Kitchen/Lounge with a log fire, cathedral ceiling, TV, DVD, Bose Hi-Fi and iPod dock; there’s a new Bathroom, a separate new WC/Handbasin upstairs, a big gas BBQ and a good stock of DVDs and CDs.

And, uniquely, Arinya Lodge is the home of the MOONABUNG LABYRINTH (see below).

As our private guests you will also enjoy the use of all the community facilities including the Tennis Court, solar-heated Pool, Outdoor Fitness Centre, Swimming Lagoon & BBQ Picnic area, Children’s Play Area, Recreation Room with Table Tennis and Pool tables and, of course, the Bistro & Bar.

With wonderful Bushwalking Trails, a Rainforest with an old Bushman’s Hut, a beautiful Lagoon for dragonfly watching and freshwater dips, Yabby Ponds, 4 WD tracks, panoramic Lookouts and more, there are endless ways to escape, really experience and enjoy the natural world.

On the 1,000 acre mountaintop wilderness retreat, the wildlife roams free. It's an absolute joy to share the environment with Wallaroos, Kangaroos, Goannas, Possums, Gliders, Crimson Rosellas, Black Cockatoos and so many more wonderful creatures. Wedge-Tail Eagles soar aloft and tranquillity rules.



Often confused with Mazes, where you go to get lost, Labyrinths are where you go to “Find yourself”.

Walked by pilgrims and penitents and an important spiritual part of many cultures for thousands of years, Labyrinths can be found in many of Europe’s medieval churches and cathedrals such as Chartres – on which the Labyrinth opened in Sydney’s Centennial Park in September 2014 was based.

Made almost entirely by hand by Arinya's owners, the Moonabung Labyrinth is accurately modelled on the even older, ancient Cretan pattern.

Other religions incorporate Labyrinths into their spirituality. Buddhists walk them in silent meditation and they are often laid out in sacred shapes that encourage contemplation and thoughtfulness.

Labyrinths, have acknowledged therapeutic and medical benefits and there is evidence that a labyrinth walk is a ‘right brain exercise’ that can activate the intuitive, imagination and creative side of your brain. The mentally calming and meditative effect of Labyrinths has led to more than 200 being built in US Hospitals in the last decade. There’s a Labyrinth at the Westmead Children’s Hospital and they are appearing in Universities, Rehabilitation Clinics, Parks, Schools and many other places worldwide.
