Sleeping up to 8 guests, this award-winning renovated heritage cottage is tucked away in a riverside setting surrounded by bushland. With views of the Hacking River and a modern open-plan kitchen and living room, it’s an ideal weekend getaway for small groups of friends or families.   

From your doorstep, wander down to Audley boatshed and rent a boat to paddle on Audley Weir. Or bring along your bike to cycle the historic Lady Carrington Drive. 

Keep your eyes peeled for native wildlife – you might be lucky to spot echidnas and wallabies foraging for food. Visit in spring to see the parks wildflowers in full bloom, including Gymea lilies and angophoras. In summer, spend your evenings lazing on the verandah, after a day splashing in one of the park’s many beaches and waterways.
