We offer boutique accommodation with an Australian character, but most importantly offering privacy, seclusion, and everything for a true escape for a romantic getaway, a wine appreciation weekend or a break from the city. Enjoy plenty of Australian flora, fauna and landscape. You will find us among the vineyards and olive groves on Hermitage Road, Pokolbin, in the Hunter Valley Wine Country.
For maximum privacy, our cottages are situated well apart over the 20 acres and they are screened by natural vegetation or situated to take advantage of the views. This makes it a truly special escape for one or two couples. In summer, a glass of wine beside the saltwater swimming pool or in the gazebo enjoying the serenity. Sharpen up your short game at our all-weather golf chipping/putting green complete with a couple of sand traps. Marvel at the spectacular sunsets and clear, romantic starry skies, take intimate walks among whispering Casuarinas. …. relax in your own spa bath, or in winter just curl up by the fireside.
Just a short distance away are many 5 star cellar doors and wineries, fine dining and great cafes, a deli, cheese making, galleries, horse riding and open spaces. Most tariffs include a bottle of premium wine and local gourmet cheese pack.
French doors open onto a wrap-around verandah with expansive views over the water. Billabong Cottage is a very special place to stay. With two large decks over the water and perfect reflections in the late afternoon, it makes it hard not to relax. Read a book, absorb some vitamin D, sip a glass of wine or fish for silver perch in the dam. Water birds provide entertainment; white cranes, spoonbills, wood ducks and purple swamp hens are seasonal visitors. A screened summer house off the upper deck, gives you extra shelter from the elements and is simply mystical in the rain. Billabong Cottage consists of two Queen bedrooms with ensuites, a shower and spa bath. Plenty of space for two couples to be able to relax comfortably or two single guests to have their own room. Why not take the whole cottage, simply spread out and have the whole place to yourself. The kitchen is fully equipped with a microwave, stove top and all the appliances and equipment needed to self catered.
