Possums Hideaway cabins were lovely. Backing on to bushland, the cabin was cosy with good facilities and small but serviceable kitchenette. It is well positioned for walks in the area and made for a great long weekend stay.

I took my fiancé here for our 5 year anniversary and it was more than I could ever ask for! The staff and cleanliness exceeded my expectations and the romantic setting in our possums cabin was perfect. I can not wait to come back!!

Excellent venue for our group of 15 oldies. Access was good, and we enjoyed the facilities of the barbecue, fire pit and swimming pool. We were pleased to see the oven in the barbecue area as we were able to heat our potato bake! Julie was always friendly and helpful. Thank you.

Stayed here last minute with the kids for a little getaway out of sydney. Was perfect. clean, tidy and comfortable. The pool could've been a tad warmer but the kids didn't care. Would definitely stay again.

Thank you Katherine for reviewing your stay with us - we are pleased you and your family enjoyed your stay. I am sorry you found the pool a little cool. It has been a real juggling act recently - with the dramatic temperature changes - to get it just right! Generally, the pool is heated to 27 degrees. We hope...

“Would be good to be in one of the 'back cottages' to look out over the bush and be a bit more private as opposed to the front ones. ”
