With the school holiday crowds gone and the cooler nights and milder days of Autumn fast approaching why not step into the many outdoor adventure activities the district has on offer. From gentle scenic nature walks to more serious hikes, this is a great time to explore the exquisite World Heritage Barrington Tops National Park. Alternatively, why not try the exhilarating thrill of white-water kayaking, mountain biking and abseiling or perhaps a gentle guided horse-ride?

Dawn view from Eco-Cabin


“A Perfect Place To Slow Down.” 

The Ridge is thrilled to announce that bookings are now opened for the first of our eco-cabins – an exciting project we have been working on for some time!

Perched on the ridge of the iconic “Bucketts” the one-bedroom cabin offers absolute privacy with magnificent views of the district and the township of Gloucester.

This addition to our property will provide a unique style of accommodation that will suit discerning couples seeking a low-key get-away surrounded by natural beauty. The cabin is fully self-contained with solar power; a bath with views; a luxurious king-size bed and a fully equipped kitchen and BBQ on the large deck.

The Eco-Cabin is about 300 metres from the nearest house and accessed by one of our dedicated golf carts. You’ll securely park your car then take the 10 minute cart ride to your own private hideaway.

We are working with local providores to create breakfast, lunch and dinner packs so that once you arrive at the cabin you can stay put and relax. However, if you do need a trip into town it’s only a few minutes away. 
So, bring your sense of adventure and leave your alarm clock behind! After a few delays our first Eco-Cabin is now ready for you to come enjoy a few days getting away from it all.
