Private Holiday Retreat with Exclusive Access to River & Bushland

10 guests | 5 bedrooms |8 beds | 1 bathroom


Overlooking the spectacular valley of Killongbutta and only half an hour’s drive from Bathurst and Orange, our river retreat offers just the right balance to get away from it all. Experience nature, enjoy the walks and share precious time with your family and friends. This property has been used as a writer’s retreat including workshops for small groups. Long stays are welcomed with price negotiable.

Explore the local wineries, visit the early gold mining towns of Hill End and Sofala and see where gold was first discovered at Ophir. The retreat has outstanding views and provides exclusive access to 70 hectares of bushland and river frontage. An ideal place for writers and artists to work or for families wanting to take time out, reconnect with nature, or to experience living in the bush before they buy.

No recreational motor bikes or quad bikes are allowed on this property. Shooting and hunting is strictly prohibited because we love our wildlife that include the ever watchful Wedgetail eagles that soar above our hill, wallabies, kangaroos, blue flyers, wallaroos, deer, goats, echnidas, shingle back lizards, goannas, water dragons, river rats and platypus. They all inhabit this very special place.
