Recent guest reviews
I was part of a group of three couples and two singles. We all not only had a bedroom each with a large ensuite but we also had our on TV's and bar fridge with coffee and tea making facilities. The house called the Jindalee was perfect for us. It also had a fire, open lounge, living and kitchen area. We had views down into Maitland, a pool table on the balcony and a spa. It was clean and had everything we needed. What more could you want? Breakfast...well that was included as well
We stayed in 'Gum Tree Heaven'...a 4 bedroom (all with ensuites) house, with 'family home' overtones...just perfect, wood fire ready to go, BBQ, 4-5 person hot spa, with views to Newcastle (about 50 kms away)...same view as the back deck and very comfy lounge room. Good TV reception so you won't miss your fav game (no Foxtel)...I had an Optus mobile that hit 23.11Mbps/14.62Mbps...great for staying 'normal' in the middle of nowhere.... The Resort has a salt water concrete pool, pool room, table tennis, volley ball and tennis courts...all in great clean condition and ready to use....a dam for yabbying...there are some great/fantastic walks, some within walking distance others a short drive...soft and easy to not quite challenging, but reasonably strenuous....very pretty and diverse. A largish dam, a short drive away for canoes and swimming/fishing (?) etc...a short walking track around the dam, BBQ area and plenty of room to kick a ball, fly a kite etc. There is a Bistro/Restaurant, but we didn't get to go there, we were happy to BBQ on the back deck. Wild life abounds, even at the house, we didn't see Koalas, but rumour is they are around....plenty of wallabys and bird life. All in all a great retreat for a family getaway or reunion or maybe just a naughty weekend away....we will definitely be going back...we were 8 adults who met on a cruise ship.
we stayed in a private rental that was fantastic. They area is a spot to visit, we had been told that the road had been improved and it was a nice drive up to the area. Abundant 4x4 trails , lots of walking tracks and the lagoon was inviting. Heaps of wildlife and the rain forest walk was loved by my lovely wife ( too steep for me , bad back and bad knees!! still did it ) We never go back to were we have been but we are thinking of returning
Great place, lots of Eastern Bearded Dragons and Robust Velvet Geckos. A few black snakes, brown snake and some goannas and frogs. No yabbys in the yabby dam though. Plenty of nice Roos and Wallabys. Great Spas. Great place except a bit too expensive
For adventure seekers, this was in the middle of nowhere in Vacy. You and your kids can spot many Kangaroos. However, Take enough food items with you for your stay. The shops are about 40KMs away.Kids enjoed a lot and comfortable cabins and rooms. However, getting there is via a narrow windy road, so be prepared with a driver who can handle it. Reach there in daylight so you can handle the windy and steep curves.
If you need time out away from the rush this is the best place Full privacy for the weekend , loved it The lodge was clean and with a private pool and spa couldn't have asked for better The wallabies would come visit us every day and the cockabarra would state he is around
We were lucky to get an upgrade with our accommodation and the lodge was wonderful. The view was beautiful and secluded. The setup was clean and organised. The spa was lovely but visually run done. The breakfast was less the spectacular and we DIDN'T have it again on our second morning. Lovely place to stay and relax. JUST A NOTE Remember your own food, it's along Drive but it's worth the effort.
I can't stress enough how excellent the property we rented is or how amazing the views and wildlife however the place is a little let down by the management company. Not clean, unaccommodating staff, terrible food, cold coffee, no spa. I would recommend visiting but take your own picnics and bbqs and don't bother with the packages
We have been to Eaglereach many times. We even had our wedding there. The view is like no other and whether you are with family or a couple you will find peace and a tranquility when you stay. I have seen some bad reviews regarding how far out it is and lack of food options but that is what we loved about it you are away from everything hence why so much wildlife at your footsteps. The staff were friendly and while it isn't a five star dinning experience the food is homely and nice. I suggest pack an esky with drink and food and sit near your fire looking at the view and cook a bbq for the nights that the dining room is closed. If you are after pure escapement then you will love Eaglereach.
We have been to Eaglereach often and found this place a delight & so relaxing away from the city.Seeing all the wildlife up so close is amazing & varied.The staff were warm & friendly & the food in the bistro really great as was the takeaway food. All round a lovely resort to get away from it all.
