Stay

A luxurious wilderness retreat

BOOK YOUR STAY

Marramarra Lodge offers 14 contemporary residences, with a maximum of 28 guests at any one time offering a sense of exclusivity. Each residence is named after Dharug words for flora and fauna native to the area.

There are three styles of accommodation, including the Peninsula Tent, a river-safari style experience overlooking the water, the Hawkesbury Bungalow, minimalist lodgings framed with a bush and river backdrop, and the Bay Bungalow, a favourite with honeymooners for its more secluded location.

Each accommodation space is designed for privacy and to capture the majestic Hawkesbury River and bushland views. They feature spacious river-stone bathrooms, plus large balconies designed to overlook the river and bushland backdrop, made for lounging and enjoying moments of river-life as it meanders by.

The light-filled interiors feature stylishly appointed king beds, leather lounges and bespoke artworks to create a feeling of relaxed, understated luxury.
