Love the wilderness but can't do without the comforts of home? Then Water Gums is for you.

This unique four-bedroom fully self-contained mudbrick and cedar house is right next to the Barrington River, only a short drive from Gloucester. Two of the bedrooms have queen-size beds, one has a double and one has three single beds, plus some mattresses for the extras.Two of the 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.

Satellite wi-fi is available for guests.

Well-behaved and properly controlled pets are subject to a refundable bond.

Water Gums Retreat is the ideal getaway for couples, families and small groups seeking a secluded natural retreat within easy range of the Barrington Tops.

The property enjoys a 320m frontage to the Barrington River. It features beautiful billabongs - one with an outlet to the river, wonderful wildlife and secluded bushland charm. Platypus are commonly seen in the early morning and around dusk.

The slow combustion log fire keeps the house lovely and warm during winter and the large covered deck is an ideal spot for summer outdoor dinning. Fully equipped kitchen and BBQ on the deck.

The house was largely built from locally made mudbricks and features timber slab detailing fashioned from trees felled and milled onsite.

Riverfront seclusion

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.

Abundant wildlife

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.
