Spread out over 6000 acres, Turon Gates is an authentic bush hideaway, tranquil and unspoilt only 2.5 hours from Sydney where your pet is welcome. It is located in the Blue Mountains on the way to Mudgee. A unique Aussie holiday where you will see wild kangaroos bounding past your front door. . With well-built pet-friendly and private rustic log cabins and glamping tents situated along 15km of trout stream and cottages with sensational mountain views, Turon Gates is an idyllic escape in the Australian bush. All our accommodation is fully self-contained and self-catering. Turon Gates resort has been featured in a popular TV travel program as one of its 10 Favourite Destinations winners. Enjoy waking up to the sounds of the bush, the chatter of the birds and the animals that come to the river for a drink. Bird watchers and animal lovers enjoy the abounding wildlife - kangaroos, wombats, platypus, echidnas, possums and bush lizards are all part of the Turon experience! There is little mobile reception at Turon, offering a true break from busy city life. There is 12km of well-graded dirt road after the turnoff from the highway. See our website for more details.
Soren and Sonya first came to Turon Gates in 1972 on a camping trip. They fell in love with its natural beauty and, after 4 days, decided they would love to retire there some day. Their dream was to create a bush retreat close enough to get away for a few days but far enough to leave the hustle and bustle of the city far behind. ​ Each cottage location was carefully selected to afford complete privacy and stunning outlooks over the rolling countryside or over the tranquil river. Sonya makes a mean cappuccino if you would like to drop in and Soren has many stories about the history of the area, the gold rush era and the historic Chinese walls throughout the property. ​ But if you just feel like being alone, the nice thing about Turon Gates is that you never need to see anyone. It's totally up to you. And for the meantime there are not many places where you can get mobile reception at Turon - and that's just the way we like it.
The destination is the journey! These are a few ideas about things to do and see on the way between Turon and Sydney - there is much much more to do though... Between Sydney and Lithgow via Katoomba: Leura has beautiful cafes and there is an awesome lolly shop with wall to wall sweets and treats. Jenolan Caves are fascinating. The Hydromajestic is an historic hotel recently renovated and has spectacular views over the Megalong Valley ​ Between Sydney and Lithgow via Bilpin: In and around Bilpin fruit growers allow you to pick your own fruit fresh off the tree. If you don't have time, there are little stalls that pepper the road where you can pick up freshly picked fruit and home made treats. Grass Karting is fun at Kurrajong Heights Grass Karts. ​​ From Lithgow to Capertee The Tin Shed at Lithgow has excellent wood fired pizza and great coffee. Stop at the lookout over the widest canyon in the world - the Capertee Valley If you like golf, Rylestone has one of the most charming golf courses in NSW.
