The house is a beautiful 1903 Federation weatherboard which was moved from Hornsby Sydney and lovingly restored with an additional section added to make it a luxurious five-bedroom house with magnificent sweeping views on three sides of the Budawang Mountains and surounding countryside. Spectacular sunrises over the misty mountains just take your breath away Brilliant night skies, dotted with shooting stars.....

Timber floorboards, high ceilings, french doors that open to huge balconies which run around almost the entire house, where you can sit and watch the sea eagles soar overhead or the wombats graze nearby.

The lounge is amazing Comfortable sofas, a cosy fireplace and lots of books so you can just curl up, read a good book and savour the peace and tranquility. Lots of books for children too

It's a place to recharge the batteries and feed the soul


There are five bedrooms. The main bedroom has a king size bed, a fantastic view through the french doors that open to the side balcony, a walk-in wardrobe and an ensuite.

Two queen-size bedrooms, beautifully presented, cosy and comfortable.

A boys bedroom with 2 bunk beds, one a double and another single, so sleeps four. A girls room with 2 single bunk beds and a double bed, also sleeps four.

An extensive library with a huge range of excellent books is a key feature. What better way to spend an afternoon than reading a good book amidst such divine suroundings

The kitchen is made from recycled wool-shed floor boards and boasts a bright fire-engine-red AGA stove which is just stunning It is great for keeping the kitchen area warm in winter and also for cooking the most delicious roasts ever

The Aga stove also heats the water that goes to the water heaters in each bedroom to keep them warm and cosy in the winter months.

Double-glazed windows on three sides of the loung/dining/kitchen keep the house warm in winter and cool in summer.

This is a truly GREEN house - a house of the future. It is powered by the sun, made primarily from recycled timber and has a very small carbon footprint

The Surrounds

Half Moon Retreat is set in 335 acres of virgin bush which has been designated as a Wild Life Refuge. It is a very special place, teaming with flora and fauna some quite unique to this area. The property has a rich history with many diggings and water races, testament to the bustling Gold Rush period of the 1800s and originally part of the range of the Walbanga/Wandandian Aboriginal tribes.

Its boundaries on three sides are the Mongarlowe River, Bob's Creek and Feagan's Creek. A chain of lagoons on one boundary is home to an incredible range of wildlife, featuring a family of stately black swans with their cygnets trailing along.....

You can take the most amazing bush walks or, in summer, swim in the Mongarlowe River along side the platypus Or you can just sit and read quietly and listen to the hush of the bush It is a place to relax and restore your energies.

Half Moon Retreat is indeed a magnificent luxury bush paradise
