Swamp House and the semi-attached Bunkhouse accommodate groups of up to 20 people, with shared facilities. Smaller groups can book the 8-bed Swamp House to themselves, while larger groups can also book Bunkhouse for extra beds. It's ideal for get-togethers with family or friends, team-building weekends or community workshops on the beautiful NSW North Coast.

The bunkhouse-style accommodation is in a secluded spot, surrounded by coastal rainforest and only 300m from the beach at Woody Head.

There are plenty of activities to keep your group busy, from swimming, kayaking, and fishing, to beach walks and rock-pooling. Stroll along Iluka Rainforest walking track, take in the views and spot whales in winter at Iluka Bluff lookout, or book a school excursion in nearby Iluka Nature Reserve.

Inside Swamp House, the air-conditioned lounge room easily doubles as a space for workshops and presentations. After a full day of group activities or outdoor exploring, cook up dinner in the kitchen or use the barbecue facilities, then spot kangaroos as you relax on the verandah or outdoor picnic tables.
