Perfect and relaxing
My husband, 3 young daughters and inlaws from UK enjoyed a beautiful long weekend at this little slice of paradise.
The home is very accommodating for families and has a beautiful outdoor eating area with a safe grasses area for the kids to play. We spent every meal out here. The river is a very short stroll down a path full of kangaroos, emus and 3 sheep! There is also another huge grasses area with a shed full of everything you need for a day relaxing by the river.
The house is SO well stocked, the best we have seen! It really feels like a home away from home. Brian was so quick to reply to us and very understanding when we accidentally took home a highchair! (It is now back there!)
We will def stay again!
Great quiet spot on the River
We loved our stay at Roonka Ridge! The home itself had everything we needed, was very clean and comfortable.
Great having your own boat ramp, super convenient.
Well maintained property! Would definitely stay again.
We’ve stayed a number of times now and this property is amazing for a couple of families with kids of all ages. The House has everything you need and there is plenty of area to kick a footy, play some cricket or throw a frizby. Wildlife, fishing, easy to use boat ramp and a little Jetty you can easily tie a boat up to. Outdoor fire pit to roast a few marshmallows and indoor fire place that does a great job of keeping the house warm. Large outdoor BBQ is kept spotless. We always have a great time here.
Thanks Brenton, Great to hear you had another fantastic stay. We look forward to having you anytime!
Relaxing at Roonka Ridge River Retreat
Roonka Ridge River Retreat is an outstanding holiday destination. We enjoyed the accessibility to the river with it's own boat ramp as well as the rural aspect, including an orchard. It was a short stroll from the home to the well kept grassed area on the riverfront. Birdlife was in abundance and the river did not disappoint. It is a beautiful spot to cruise down river, as we did on our jet ski, and marvel at the cliff faces, enjoy water sport activities; skiing, canoeing, etc. or try to catch yabbies. The home is bright, clean, well maintained and provided absolutely everything we needed and more!
Thank you Theresa and Joe, We are so happy that you had a wonderful time! We hope you have better luck catching more yabbies next time. We were told that the season was quite short as the flood waters returned to normal very quickly this year. The new jetty has recently been completed and will give even better access to the river. Hope to see you again soon.
Purfect location for taking kids having plenty of space for them to run, explore and see plenty of wildlife. Very organized with everything ready to go (even the fire was ready to light) and everything you could need. A very comfortable stay
Thank you so much Fern, We are so pleased that the kids had such a great time! Hope they spotted the frill necked lizards and glad to hear that they got to meet our resident stumpy tail and of course our own mob of kangaroos. We'll put some more photos of of animal "zoo" up on the site soon. The echidnas are a bit elusive but you can definitely see tracks around the property. The evenings are just superb for campfires so we hope you are able to come back and cook potatoes and toast marshmallows in the coals. We hope you get a chance to come back soon.
Amazing Place For a Relaxing Break
Had a Relaxing Couple of days. Everything you could need summer or winter. Was a sweet spot for a couple mates to get away for a break & we are already planning to bring our families back.
Thanks Brendan The river is magical at this time of year. We are glad you and your mates had a fantastic time and look forward to having your families stay. Kids love following the kangaroo tracks (they are often on the front lawn as you arrive) and occasionally spot echidnas wandering through our property too.
