Water Gums Retreat
Water Gums is a modern, four-bedroom fully self-contained mudbrick and cedar house right next to the Barrington River, a short drive from Gloucester. Two of the bedrooms have queen-size beds, one has a double and one has three single beds.
Two bedrooms are downstairs where the main bathroom and two-person spa are located. The other two bedrooms are upstairs and they share their own shower and toilet.
Slow combustion fire, barbecue, fully equipped kitchen.
The house was largely built from locally made mudbricks and features timber slab detailing fashioned from trees felled and milled onsite.
With generous living areas and large deck and verandah, Water Gums is perfect for a couple of families or a group of friends to use without getting in one another's way.
Water Gums is about 10 minutes from the village of Barrington and the house is just metres from the Barrington River. It features beautiful billabongs - one with an outlet to the river, wonderful wildlife and secluded bushland charm.
Platypus, wallabies, echidnas, goannas, bats, waterfowl and many other creatures are commonly seen here.
Water Gums is a bird-watcher's paradise, with the pre-dawn chorus an amazing daily treat. Nestled among the treetops the house looks out into the branches and greenery, with glimpses of the billabong and river in between the dense branches. It's also a getaway from technology. No phone - not even mobile reception at the house. No internet, no television and no DVD player supplied. Just you, your companions and the natural surrounds.
