It is perfect for couples or families wishing to escape the hustle and bustle of the city and who have the desire to experience the wonders of native Australilan wildlife first hand.

Colourful parrots and other wild birds including eagles adorn the skies above, whilst at ground level you can get close to friendly kangaroos and wallabies-So have your camera ready at all times!

It is also conveniently located to Vacy (10km away) and near the historic town of Paterson. The Gresford winery, historical Morpeth and the Barrington Tops are also within easy reach.

There is a playground for the children and exercise area for the adults plus much more for the whole family.

Guest Comments


The following report was on 'Trip Advisor' on May 4th 2012.

'We stayed at the 'Billabong Cabin" for three nights mid-week , two couples and absolutely fell in love with the cabin and our hosts (Kangaroos and Kookaburras). We can highly recommend this cabin as the best view and attention to everything! The setting that is at the edge of the mountain is breathtaking and to sit and eat your meal there is awesome!'

August 2, 2012

We so enjoyed being one with Nature 'Heaven right here on earth.' Stayed for 3 days and we left feeling recharged and peaecful-it feels like we have been here 3 months! We will miss our friends the kangaroos and parrots, but we will be back.

Sept. 23, 2012

What a beautiful haven to come and spend some wonderful quality time with some special friends. We laughed , we drank, we ate and we relaxed. Recharging the batteries, tranquillity is magnificent. Indeed this is a very special place.

November 2012

Staying at Billabong has been a wonderful experience for all of us but particularly for my 2 nieces on vacation form the U.K. It is a memory we will treasure and keep forever. We have thoroughly enjoyed the lodge and have eaten, drunk, and slept very well while keeping an eye on the wildlife day and night. We love the design and floor plan of the house and the panoramic views of the valley. We found it extremely comfortable and well equipped. We loved the kangaroo D.V.D.

December 2012

The world was supposed to end on Dec. 21, 2012 during our stay at Billabong however we awoke to a incredible cloud cover where nothing was in view and we weren't sure if we were in heaven or not. As it turned out, we were all safe but our view of life had changed forever for we had experienced a little taste of heaven right here on earth at this heavenly lodge which we will always treasure.

Jan. 2014

This is one of the most beautiful places that any one of us have ever seen. Really close to a paradise! The lodge was just perfect-very well equipped and with a comfortable homey feel. The kangaroos kept us will entertained all day. We will miss their company and will cherish memories form here forever. Thank you so much.

4/5 Good

Weekend getaway
During the COVID pandemic it was nice to be able to getaway and enjoy a trip away, the view was spectacular, however the screen on the veranda did detract as it was not there in our previous trip. The mattress and pillows did not make for a great nights sleep but still overall a great place to enjoy a calming trip back to nature.

5/5 Excellent

Fantastic accommodation
Weekend away without the kids, very clean accommodation, awesome view across the valley and full kitchen. The outdoor heated spa was a highlight. Thanks for sharing your cabin in the clouds with us.
