Fantastic Family Break

  • 5 of 5

Party of 2 families (4 x adults and 4 x children in total... plus a dog!) meeting up half way between Sydney & the Gold Coast. We had such a lovely time relaxing, walking, cooking, swimming in the rock pools (bit fresh but worth it once in!) The setting is absolutely lovely and we enjoyed it so much we never even ate out and just cooked and enjoyed the sun going down and then looking at the amazing stars at night. The markets in Bellingen were on that weekend (Easter Saturday 2017) and they were HUGE. Nearby Dorrigo is gorgeous but there are plenty of walking trails nearer too. Lovely part of the world and we hope to be back again.

We stayed for the new years period 2016/2017. It was warm during the days and night. A great spacious area with picturesque scenes and a swimming hole close by. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would look to go back if the opportunity ever arises

Nature lovers hangout

  • 5 of 5

My family and I booked the Blue Gum Retreat because it was a very conveniently placed near the Gleniffer hall where we were celebrating my daughters wedding. I wasn't expecting such a wonderful relaxing, well set up family home. The vistas from the house are worth the stay alone. Our stay was far too short but I would recommend anyone to try the Blue Gum Retreat.
