Banjos Bushland Retreat offers uniqueness to its guests by creating an unforgettable experience in a truly Australian environment. Not only does Banjos offer the "ultimate escape" by providing unhosted 4 1/2 star purpose built accommodation but its surrounds ensure an "up close and personal" encounter with many wonderful examples of the Australian flora and fauna - wallabies, kangaroos, kookaburras, king parrots, crimson rosellas, fairy wrens, firetails, possums and lizards will all delight you with their presence.

Nestled on the upper slopes of the Moonabung Ranges, only 2 hours from Sydney, Banjos Bushland Retreat offers luxury unhosted accommodation set within 20 acres of private unspoilt bushland. The three architecturally designed lodges and private recreation centre rest within a 1000 acre reserve with spectacular views across the Hunter Valley and Barrington Tops.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bushland getaway Great getaway for a family to relax and see some wildlife. Had breakfast outside on the wide decks with parrots and kookaburras while taking in the bush views. Enjoyed a bush-walk, some tennis and a game of pool. Relaxed around the fireplace on the large lounges in the evenings after a home cooked meal with the family.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An amazing weekend! We booked out all three cabins for 15 adults and I can say that we had plenty of space. The cabins were immaculate and we all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The local wildlife were very friendly and a few of us had the courage to hand feed them. Highly recommend this retreat for families or group of friends wanting a quiet relaxing weekend away.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Classy, beatiful and HUGE Had a great stay with a large group of families and small kids. The lodges are huge. So much space its overwelming. All nicely decorated. Very classy romantic cabins with fire places and quality furnishings. The glass windows are all around giving amazing views of the valley. Kanagaroos and possums come right up to the door. The reck centre is great with tennis court, spa and play ground. The pool was a bit far away at the Eagle reach resort though. It is a bit of a difficult drive up the mountain so take all the food with you. The kitchens have everything you need and BBQs. Worth the drive. Great place.
