ABOUT US: Topi Gums Bush Retreat has been welcoming guests since 1994. Together with a dynamic team of local people, we ensure you will have an amazing holiday house in the bush.
"We love the Australian bush and being surrounded by nature - birds' springtime songs, croaking frogs, the summer hum of cicadas, fresh winter nights, the scent of the bush and the starry nights. Being at Topi Gums makes us feel that nothing else matters. It is re-energising and liberating. These experiences need sharing. We invite you to come, relax and recharge". Topi Gums is a beautiful place.
THE LAND: The Worimi people who occupied many areas of the Great Lakes and the Birrimbai tribe who occupied areas of Bungwahl, named it: Topi, meaning 'to stay', and Topi Topi meaning: to stay a little while longer. It is believed that the region of Topi Topi was not settled by any of the Worimi tribes, rather they travelled through and rested there. Therefore, we offer you an earlier check-in time and an extended check-out time, so that you too may stay a little longer.
ADVICE: Due to its location and setting, Topi Gums is not recommended for children who are not risk aware, or people who may require fast medical assistance. Motorised trail bikes, weapons and noisy behaviour strictly prohibited.
