Experience Peace and Tranquillity at Curlew Retreat, set in 100 splendid acres of natural beauty, including the stunning Granite Gorge, running 1 km of the headwaters of the Maryland River.
To get you started, we have a 200 metre graded track signed Curlew Gorge. See the granite outcrops, natural caves, natural rock swimming pool in the wet season. Enjoy bird and wildlife watching - kangaroos and wallabies.
Relaxation and Romance and retreat from the world. Heat some complimentary aromatherapy oils and fill the villa with soothing scent. Take a spa bath with someone you love. Then light the log fire and curl up on the sofa. Enjoy the music library or choose a DVD from the DVD library and watch it on the High Definition plasma TV.
Relax in total privacy, far from the world with Crystal Clear Nights after dark. The 800 metres of altitude and a sky free from any lights opens up the majesty of the thousands of visible stars in the Milky Way and the Clouds of Magellan together with the planets of the solar system. Take it in with the naked eye or use the telescopes for a closer look.
Collapse into bed and after a night of perfectly serene sleep, be lulled awake by birdsong and the soft glow of the morning sun through mist. Make an espresso and take it out to the deck to bask in the morning sun.
Wine and Dine
By day follow the Wine and Food trail using the complimentary local map. At night prepare a gourmet meal with your finds in the state-of-the-art kitchen or barbecue under the stars on the outdoor gas located on the deck.
Visit some of the 10 nearby wineries and store your purchases in Curlew Retreat’s built-in wine rack. Buy some fresh produce from Vincentos at the big apple or Sam's at Thulimbah. Or some Apple and Ginger juice or Cider from Sutton’s Cidery on Maryland road. At Amiens pick up some home baked lemon scented Italian shortbreads from Eagle produce.
And of course, the famous Fruit Run lies 10 minutes west of Curlew. In season choose fresh fruit such as Cherries, Pears, Apples, Peaches, Nectarines and Grapes from the many farms such as Mario and Angelo’s Wheel In Orchard. Ask Angelo for a braid of his Italian Garlic.
