Things To Do
The estate includes an all-weather tennis court (tennis racquets provided in Nests), swimming pool and dams.
The dams are stocked with fish and there are many walking trails both on the estate and in the surrounding forests.
The resort adjoins Chichester Dam where picnic and BBQ facilities are available.
You will be surrounded by the rainforests of Barrington Tops National Park and the historic towns of Dungog, Clarence Town, Stroud, Gloucester, Gresford and Paterson. You will be just an hour from the wineries in the Hunter Valley.
There are several suggested tourist drives in which you could explore these places.
Bushwalking is abundant in the Barrington Tops and surrounding areas. From easy walks to the more difficult, all bushwalkers of all ages and fitness levels are welcome.
Mornings in the national park can be arranged through Dungog Visitors Information Centre 02 4992 2212. You can take in the breathtaking mountain and valley views then suddenly find yourself in the most beautiful and serene rain forest. Cool off in a crystal clear mountain stream or under a massaging waterfall.
Limited maps and details are available at reception. Dungog Visitors Information Center has a full range of information on walks and a guided tour of both Blue Gums Loop and Jersulam Creek Falls can be arranged on Saturdays through the Visitors Information Centre 02 4992 2212.
Mountain Bike Riding
Looking for some outdoor activity off the river? Then don’t forget to bring your mountain bike. Enjoy the views while riding through the forest or take an easy ride to Chichester Dam.
For the more adventurous, ride up to the Telegherry Forrest where you can enjoy rainforests or take a ride to the Williams River.
Then dangle your feet in the crystal clear water. We also provide maps of the Dungog Mountain Bike Common for the serious bike rider.
Things to do:
The common wisdom from National Parks is that feeding the wildlife interferes with their balanced diets but, if you cannot resist, then no bread, just seeds and fruit for wallabies, possums and birds.
Relax and cool off in our swimming pool or take a dip in our pristine rivers near by. Take advantage of our local waterfall at Jerusalem Falls.
With a championship tennis court, you are sure to get a few games in.
Tennis racquets and balls are provided for your enjoyment in each Nest.
For the avid golfers – Dungog has a fine 9 hole golf course 25 minutes drive from the Estate.
