Riverwood Downs Mountain Valley Lodge, Barrington Tops

Riverwood Downs is set on the banks of a mountain river in the foothills of Barrington Tops just 21/2 hrs north of Sydney, and 1½ hrs North of Newcastle (between Stroud & Gloucester). It has 15 acres of manicured park land and gardens and is part of a 750 acre cattle breeding property with many kilometres of walking trails and river frontage. Whether you are looking for a great family holiday, a little adventure, or just rest and relaxation you can find it here.

The nights are usually a little cool and the days beautiful. Activities available on site include bushwalking, horseriding, swimming, canoeing, watching the wildlife – or you can just do nothing! Campfires are allowed on the unpowered sites and well behaved pets are welcome.

Riverwood Downs has all the facilities you are likely to need – lovely riverside campsites, powered van sites, a bunkhouse lodge, luxury self contained Park Cabins, Riverside Spa Cabins, and a luxury 41/2 Star Guesthouse, for that occasion when you really want to spoil yourself.

Where Are Australia's Best Beaches?

Australia's Best Beaches

Australia has miles and miles of shoreline but which beaches are really great? Ultimately it depends on what you're looking for in a beach. Pristine wilderness without a single footprint in sight, the sparkle of cosmopolitan high rise on the waters edge, the adrenalin pumping roar of a powerful surf beach, or quite simply the perfect white squeaky sand that squelches between your toes.
