Description

Callicoma Hill is in the Hunter Valley about 3 hours north of Sydney.

The eco-cabin provides comfortable self-contained accommodation for up to 10 people in a remote, forested mountain setting.

Callicoma Hill provides opportunities for bushwalking, observing native wildlife, and enjoying the fresh air and peaceful atmosphere.

The eco-cabin is close to Barrington Tops and Mount Royal National Parks which are part of the Gondwana Rainforest Reserves world heritage area. 

The self-contained cabin has 3 separate bedrooms, a fully equipped kitchen, lounge and bathroom. Up to 10 people can be accommodated:

  • Bedroom 1 has 2 single bunks
  • Bedroom 2 has 1 double bed and 1 single bed
  • Bedroom 3 has 1 double bed and 2 single bunks
  • Lounge room has 2 single mattresses

Bring your own linen – pillows, quilts and blankets are supplied.

The kitchen features a traditional wood fuel stove. A gas ring is also available, plus an outdoor wood barbecue (weather permitting).

There is ample verandah space for outdoor relaxing and dining – with a 70km view! A cosy wood heater is in the lounge for chilly winter nights. There is no wheelchair access. Smoking is outside only.

Many environmental features have been incorporated into the design of Callicoma Hill to make it a showcase ecologically sustainable development. Special features are the fully independent solar electricity supply. Rainwater tanks provide pure drinking water, wood from the site is used for cooking, heating and hot water. Waste water is treated in constructed wetlands and is reused on gardens.

Nearby Calicoma Bunkhouse provides budget accommodation and camping. It is suitable for groups and has barbecue cooking, a hot shower and flush toilet.

Native plants and animals on the site are protected and carefully managed, including kangaroos, wallabies and threatened species. Pets are not permitted so that rare wildlife living on the site can be protected.
