WELCOME TO BLUEGUMS CABINS in the foothills of the Barrington Tops

For accommodation in the Barrington Tops, Bluegums Cabins have the perfect isolated and Romantic Bushland Retreats.

Escape the hustle and bustle of daily life and immerse yourself in the beauty of nature.

Bluegums Cabins is the perfect escape for anyone looking to unwind and connect in a beautiful, secluded retreat in the foothills of the world heritage listed Barrington Tops National Park, a stunning area of wilderness with towering Gondwana forests, rivers, waterfalls and diverse wildlife. 

If you are a couple looking to spend time together in a peaceful and relaxing environment.  We have 4 secluded cabins which are specifically set up for couples with a cosy log fire, spa bath and 4 poster bed.

If you are a bigger group we have 3 other properties that each sleep from 4-9 guests and our properties are spread out of the 180 acres so room and privacy for everyone.

The larger homes sleep from 4-9 guests so suitable for families or groups of friends.  Each holiday home is fully self-contained with fully equipped kitchen and bbq so you can enjoy your stay with all the amenities you need to cook, relax and unwind and observe and appreciate the natural environment.  There is also a salt-water swimming pool and tennis court on site.

We are located 20 minutes from the country town of Dungog where you can enjoy a range of activities from visiting art galleries, trying local cafes, the micro brewery and mountain biking at Dungog Common.  The James Theatre is a great option for cinema lovers and the Royal Hotel has fantastic live music every weekend with artists from all over Australia and overseas.

We offer extra special rates for stays of 3 nights or more so you can really relax and enjoy a beautiful escape.

“Awesome place with an amazing view, beautiful cabin and animals love it and I recommend to everyone who wants a very quiet and peaceful place out of the internet world”.  Saturn Jan 2023


“Such a slice of heaven! So relaxing and the perfect place to go to slow down, connect with nature, and remember what is really important.
I loved all the wildlife that visited my cabin whenever I relaxed out in the hammock. The quiet and calmness of the bush was so enjoyable.
Bring along everything you need to entertain yourself, or enjoy walking through the estate, or a visit to the dam. If you are in need of a fancy coffee or sweet treats, then be sure to visit Dungog (20mins drive) and stop at Meg’s kitchen – so many delicious options.
Nights by the fireplace were toasty and hypnotic while listening to the nocturnal animals getting up to mischief, and the big comfy bed was perfect for a good night’s sleep. I left the roof skylight open each night to be awoken by the natural light in the morning – no alarms necessary!… I awoke refreshed and eager to enjoy another day and was so very sad when I had to leave.
Highly recommend this place to escape the rat-race and enjoy some peace and quiet!”  KB 2022


“Awesome stay took myself a few days to settle down and really feel myself unwind so I’m glad we stayed a few nights. Had a very memorable baby moon with my partner who was 29 weeks pregnant I feel like the nest was the perfect place to sit for a few days.
For those wanting to explore the walks in this part of Barrington this makes a great base camp a 2wd can get you to a lot of places from here”  Kieran 2022


“Relaxing romantic weekend hideaway with my wife . The wildlife was very friendly and entertaining, can’t wait to go back!!” Warwick 2022


“We came here to celebrate our 30th Wedding anniversary and had a wonderful time. A cozy, comfortable cabin in beautiful scenery. Loved the hammocks, four poster bed , spa bath and the log fire which made for a romantic escape. Our hosts were so helpful and friendly. Highly recommend” 2022

Firefly Season is here….. In October the fireflies appear from dusk each evening for an hour or two. Book a stay and hopefully you will see them too. It’s a great time of year to visit us, if eatery is hot there’s a lovely pool and rivers to explore. If cool we have log fires. Dungog is close by and full of eclectic shops, great cafes, a brewery, live music, mountain bike tracks, bike hire, live music at weekends, a community co-op, art galleries and lots more. #bluegumscabins #getaway #feelnsw #barringtoncoast #fireflies #firefly ...
