Jungara Country Escape

Bedrooms 6
Property type house
Minimum Stay 1 - 3 nights


About the property

Jungara offers the best of both worlds; a quiet retreat where you can relax by the pool, in total privacy or take a picnic down through the amazing rocky escarpment to the grassy banks of the magnificant Shoalhaven river. If it's something more active you're looking for, then you could have a game of tennis on the flood lit courts or go mountain biking on the bush tracks. The river offers an abundance of water activities, swimming, kayaking, boating or fishing and just a 10 minute drive to the town centre of Nowra for it's cinema, cafe's and restaurants. Jervis Bay is a short 30 minute drive away, where you can take a dolphin watch cruise or enjoy the white sandy beaches of the surrounding Bay. For a more cultural experience, visit Arthur Boyd's Bundanon, which is right across the river or take a walk to the top of Pulpit Rock (made famous by Arthur Boyd's painting). The house is large and comfortable with a fully equiped kitchen & outdoor BBQ area. The spacious surrounding gardens and lawns make it perfect for families. So if it's a family get-together or a weekend escape with friends, you'll find it the perfect venue for some time-out. At the end of the day just sit back and soak up the ambiance of the beautiful Shoalhaven river escarpment and the the native wildlife that visit your door.

Amazing, Spacious house

  • 5 of 5

I selected this property from all of the fantastic reviews and they couldn’t be more accurate. The theme of the weekend was boating/ wakeboarding and the property had plenty of room to park two boats and four cars, we also found we could drive right down to the river and wakeboard in front of the property.

The house has plenty of room with multiple living areas, granny flat by the pool and the room off the tennis court with a pool table and amenities. We all agreed to return next summer and couldn’t have asked for a better place to spend a long weekend away. Thanks again June and Graham.

Incredible place

  • 5 of 5

This place is the a place to stay if you're looking for a high end getaway with breathtaking views and fantastic service.

June took my friends and I in and from the moment she started showing me around the place I got more and more excited.

She made a point of assuring that the weekend was about is having fun. From the swimming pool to the tennis court and kayaks on the river, i found it hard to pick a favorite part. I'll definitely be coming back and would definitely recommend Jungara to anyone.

Wonderful Holiday Experience!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our 4 day stay from the moment we met June at the house to the wonderful kayaking trip we did just before we left! The house was extremely comfortable and had everything we needed plus so much more. We mostly cooked at the house & the kitchen was really well equipped with plenty of space. We utilised everything Jungara had to offer from tennis, walking, biking, swimming, kayaking & fresh eggs from the chickens each day. The walk down to the river through the canyon was amazing and we had lots of friendly encounters with the local kangaroos. This was the best short stay we have ever had and June & Graeme were fantastic hosts. June looked after us like family & made our stay a very special one. We did not want to leave & will definitely come back again!

The perfect property

  • 5 of 5

My second time at Jungara Homestead and it was just as wonderful as my previous experience. The perfect location for a family group to catch up. The place provided everything you could want to entertain everyone. Well equiped kitchen. Great beds and linen. Lots to do outside and lots of room inside to relax. June and Greame couldn't have been more helpful. We will definitely stay again and I would definitely recommend this property to friends.

Amazing Property!

  • 5 of 5

Our group had a wonderful stay at Jungara Homestead! The house itself is amazing and we enjoyed the private location and expansive property. We saw lots of wildlife and enjoyed swimming and Kayaking in the river. June and Graeme are great hosts and attended to everything we needed, even helping when we got our drone stuck in a tree! Perfect for a large family holiday!

Amazing stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week at Jungara. From relaxing by the the pool, to playing tennis and cricket, to having picnics by the river, fishing, kayaking, wake boarding and tubing. The kids were always entertained and the adults were always relaxed. Jungara had everything we could've asked for.

The house was immaculate, with ample space for 11 of us and everything you need. The house is large enough that you can all be together sharing meals or find a quiet place to read your book alone. The property is beautifully maintained with spectacular views over the river. We were thrilled to look out the window and see kangaroos every day and plenty of other wildlife! The kids also enjoyed feeding the chickens each day and collecting fresh eggs.

I'd like to thank June and Graham for being the most wonderful hosts. They went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed and by the end of the week they felt like old friends. Definitely the best rental property we have ever stayed at.

I highly recommend Jungara to everyone. Whether you are after an action packed holiday or just want to relax, Jungara has everything you need.

Owner's Response: Thank you Trudy. We felt the same way about you & your family, like we were all old friends! You were awesome guests & took great care of the house & surrounds. It was also good to see the kids (who I must say were the most gorgeous, polite & well mannered boys) enjoying all the facilities & generally having a good time. We do hope you come back again, as you will always be most welcome. Regards June
