Only 1 hr north of Sydney on the Hawkesbury River at Berowra Waters, and surrounded by 3 National Parks, the award-winning boat-access only Calabash Bay Lodge offers families, friends, and couples the experience of the Australian way of life on the absolute waterfront, with all the attendant luxury perks. We include plush linens, boat, kayaks, fishing rods, luxury REN toiletries, Foxtel, Netflix & Apple TV, and we're only a short boat ride to famed restaurants Berowra Waters Inn and Peat's Bite.
Calabash Bay Lodge is surrounded by pristine eucalypt bushland and the ancient sandstone cliffs fronting onto the Hawkesbury River at Berowra Waters. With three national parks on each side of our riverfront location, the Ku’ring-gai Chase, Marramarra, and Berowra Valley, Calabash Bay Lodge offers an unparalleled eco-luxury escape perfect for weekend getaways from Sydney, multigenerational or multiple family holidays, as well as romantic luxury couples retreats in celebration of honeymoons or babymoons, or just to spoil a lover. Calabash Bay Lodge is also a unique and inspiring venue for a corporate reward, strategy workshop, or health and wellness retreat. Guets can enjoy use of a runabout boat for fishing and adventuring, 1 double and 3 single kayaks, as well as fishing rods and a crab pot to try your luck at catching dinner included. You can swim year round directly off our private pontoon, or take the boat for a spin to a nearby secluded beach at low tide. You can bushwalk directly from the property’s rear or take the boat to the nearby trail heads of the Great North Walk.
