BANJOS is truly a unique retreat
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.
Full directions are given with confirmation of booking.
In 2004 Banjos Bushland Retreat received the highest award in the Unique Accommodation category at the New South Wales Tourism Awards. As a result of winning this category for 3 years, Banjos was inducted into the NSW Tourism Awards Hall of Fame. This is an achievement that only a few organisations have achieved and one that we are extremely proud of.
