#Recovery Weekend

Take a Recovery Weekend and book a getaway that gives back.

A weekend escape that’s about feeling good and doing good.

After a difficult summer extending the dry period and with bushfires up and down the east coast, our region has suffered.  But we have had some good rain over the last few weeks and the countryside in starting to look GREEN AGAIN.

So how about recharging your batteries with a trip to our rural areas.  By staying a night or two out of town, you’ll be supporting communities affected by drought and fires. 

You need it and they need it too! It’s a WIN WIN!


Book your Recovery Weekend with The Ridge and take a getaway that gives back.

It’s a great time of year to come and enjoy the many outdoor adventure activities our district has on offer.  Ranging from easy scenic nature walks to more serious hikes you can explore the exquisite World Heritage Barrington Tops National Park.  Or try the exhilarating thrill of white-water kayaking, mountain biking and abseiling or bring out the “City Slicker” Cowboy in you with guided horse-ride?


The Ridge is great for large families, with heaps of room including three queen bedrooms, two twin bedrooms; large open plan kitchen / lounge / dining, separate family room and two large decks and an outdoor fire pit to enjoy.

Or if it’s just two of you, our new Eco-Cabin, your “Secret Place to Slow Down”.

Eco-Cabin Guest Review – Emily (Feb 2020)

“A perfect place to escape the hustle and bustle of Sydney. Lovely cabin with everything you could need for a weekend away. The view is beautiful and the only sounds you’ll hear are rain drops on the roof and the local wildlife. Bliss. ”

After your busy day’s adventuring, wind down with a cool drink shared with loved ones, sitting at one of The Ridge’s many viewing spots relaxing and watching the sun setting behind the far off mountains as the sky changes colours and evening draws, then the stars begin to come out.


Winter is a popular season at The Ridge, so please consider booking early.  As our valued previous guests and enquirers, we’d like to make sure you don’t miss out on your preferred stay dates.
