  • The property is in a remote location so it’s a good idea to pick up your supplies before you arrive. The closest town for supplies is Walcha.

Positioned at the head of the Hastings River, Mooraback Cabin is a quiet and remote place to unwind. It’s only an hour’s drive from Walcha, but you’ll feel worlds away, perched on the edge of World Heritage-listed Gondwana rainforest.

This wheelchair-friendly cabin is a cosy size for families or small groups of friends. From your verandah, watch kangaroos and wallabies provide free entertainment in the mornings and afternoons. If you bring your binoculars, you may spot some of the park’s unique birdlife including robins, fantails and brown thornbills.

The cabin is a great base to explore the walks, lookouts and waterfalls of the park. Go platypus spotting at dawn or dusk on the kid-friendly Platypus Pool walking track, listen for lyrebirds along Carabeen walk or head off the beaten track to lower Mooraback Falls.

A short drive away, you’ll find the dramatic gorges and pristine swimming holes of Oxley Wild Rivers National Park. The cabin is located just 10km from Cedar Creek, making it the perfect location to extend your walking experience if you’re hiking Green Gully track.

The frosty mornings make this location a winter wonderland. Cosy up to the wood heater after a day exploring the park and as evening falls, watch the crystal-clear sky above you fill with stars.
