\\\\ MID WEEK SPECIAL ///// (enquire with owner)



\\\\ WINTER WEEKEND SPECIAL ///// (enquire with owner)






we provide Kayaks for your enjoyment. a single and a double kayak at present. when the river not low you can kata to TIRI bridge approx 10km downstream.. or you can explore in the Kayak around the property. All children must be accompanied by an adult. We have a range of sizes of life jackets available.


There is a very cool thing to do.. the neighbouring camping ground (3km up the road) offer a tube ride - where they take you upstream and you float down the river on a tube - this only costs a few dollars and is highly recommended. (not available in peak holiday times)


2 golf courses exist within 40min drive Wingham and Taree courses.


bring your mountain bikes.. there is a 5 km round trip around our property - mostly tracked of fun.. safe for the little ones. a few not too bad.. :)


proper footwear required.. there are many great walking tracks.. you can explore and make your own.. get creative and follow the river bank and you will find some very cool places downstream...


the temperature of river is perfect for swimming most of the year (September to May). The river is wide and deep. Although never is it safe to dive into a river.


with the correct bait (prawns) there is a great chance you could catch dinner.. BYO fishing equipment.


BYO binoculars.. there is a very high chance you will be seeing a huge range unique Australian wildlife from Wallabies, Kangaroos to Wedge-tailed eagles.. See a side of Australia that is missing in modern life..


There is a set up out door fire pit not too far from the house that is perfect for the GLAMPERS out there.. Sit round the campfire with a wine at night enjoying the lovely outdoors and stars, the kids will love this also as they can road marshmallows - then when you are finished take a few steps and you are inside the house with all the modern cons.. Also when there are no fire bans in place you are welcome to have a camp fire down by the river.


there are lots of other activities you can do in and around the area. we have a list of websites and information we can give you prior to your stay.



The house is of an octagon shape placed on a circular disc with can turn 360 degrees in any direction. It runs of 2 very small motors that use less energy than a washing machine when in use.. The house is programmed to do very small random moves every few hours to keep the functionality flowing. But the main purpose of the house rotating is for user benefit. You can control which was it faces with a very simple to use touch screen panel in the living room...It is very subtle that you wont even realised you are moving... If it is hot weather - you may want to keep the living area cool - you can select that the living room avoids the sun all day.. or vice versa for winter..(it works very well) You may want to enjoy dinner facing the sunset, or you may be enjoying the outdoor area and so therefore you can rotate the main indoor living area to face the outdoor area so that they are flowing from one to the other. It is very easy to operate just select a piece of the octagon pie and then select a coordinate. We have stainless steel plaques outside on the verandah fixed to the coordinates and also fixed to the house - so you don't need a compass. Or there is the option to just select a part of the house and choose "follow the sun" and it will do that all day for you.. it is that easy. The touch screen is fixed to the dining room wall at approx 1.5mtr off the ground so that little kids cant get it confused with a toy.. It will take approx. 35minutes to do a full to always do the same very safe speed.


Our property is stunning as we are in the middle of the Manning Valley - our property is like a big pie shape as the Nowendoc river wraps around us like a semicircle. Giving us 850 mtrs of natural river frontage.. The river is fresh water and is so refreshing to swim in. The width of the river varies but can be as wide as 50mtr in some places. It is so tranquil and will make you feel at peace with nature. Spend the day on the banks of the river - take some camping chairs have a camp fire.

our property is 40 acres on size and we run a stud of Santa Gertrudis cattle. We have several paddocks and also agist the neighbouring lands - our cattle are free to roam just as nature intended, eating only the fresh grass. It is very relaxing to sit back on the rotating house verandah while the house slowing moves and enjoy watching the cattle in their natural habitat.

We also have 2 horses on the property which are never to far from sight, you will most likely see Kangaroos and Wallabies passing by and a huge array of birdlife especially eagles and kookaburras.


But above all spend quality time with your friends & family in a peaceful environment away from the hustle of everyday life and distractions.

We have been on several TV shows around the us up :) "Rotating House"

Mesmerising and great accommodation

  • 5 of 5

This is the one of the best holiday/getaway we had in last 10 years. As usual 4 (3 families less this year for us though) of our family/friends set out on a pre-Christmas journey to explore country NSW and for 2017 we chose a farm stay at World Famous Rotating house. The property in 40 Acre land is surrounded by spectacular and serene mountains and beautiful manning river. What a fantabulous place!!! Whole years work stress was relieved in 5 days.

It was a divine and peaceful for all our family and friends and kids loved this place. Entire group went Kayaking in the river that flows beside the Rotating House -

thanks to caretakers. We spent more than 3 hours in Kayaks and it was never enough.

Dear Property owners and caretakers, thanks you for making our stay so memorable...

Wishing you all a prosperous and great New Year 2018.

Best Regards

We will be back for SURE!!!

Wow! Just Wow!

What a wonderful peaceful spot for a well needed rest . We thoroughly enjoyed our time in the Rotating House . Everything we needed was at our fingertips. Beds were very comfy & my wife absolutely loved the Daybed on the decking. The mood lighting in the bathroom is an added bonus ! We would love to visit again ! Great for family gatherings.

Everything you need and more..

  • 5 of 5

This place is like a unique, boutique hotel in the middle of the Australian countryside. Great time of year to go, being able to swim in the river to cool off during warm Spring days and curl up by the fire with a blanket and a bottle of red in the evenings. Seriously worth the splashing of cash and treating yourself to a quiet weekend out of the city!

Excellent property, relaxing views

  • 5 of 5

Such a beautiful property, was so relaxing and the views are amazing. The care takers of the property are such beautiful people, they helped us get comfy. The children loved the animals on property especially the horses. It was cold when we were there but the life saver of all is that fire place and the electric blankets on the bed. we did manage to go kaiking in the river it was so peaceful and beautiful. The whole property is kids safe and bonus is that the property had everything u can think of first aid kit which made us also feel a lot safer incase of forbidden accidents. Overall we were 9 adults and 7 children and all were comfortable and happy the house was so big and never did we feel over crowded. Will stay here again and recommend everyone to come here for a home away stay.

Simply Amazing!!

  • 5 of 5

Just wanted to say a massive thank you to Luke and Leanne for your kindness and generosity in allowing us to stay in your beautiful home over the past few days. We had an absolutely amazing time and it is something that will remain etched in our hearts and memories forever.

Every aspect of the home was truly wonderful, from the spacious kitchen, lounge and dining area, the cosiness of the fireplace, the well-appointed bedrooms, the viewing room upstairs which the kids really enjoyed and spent a lot of their time in and of course the rotating of the house which contributed to the uniqueness and boundless pleasure of our stay.

Without doubt the river was a massive selling point, really incredible and provided the backdrop for many a sunset beverage. The greenery, the mountains, the thunder of stampeding cattle, stories by campfire, the rain at night, children filling the house with laughter...all of nature at its's very finest. We simply could not get enough of this stunning and magical place!!

Again, we just can't thank you enough and honestly cannot wait to get back and visit this beautiful nirvana once again. Look forward to making our way back soon and we'll definitely be referring family and friends to this fantastic part of the world and your gorgeous home. Simply amazing!!
