About the property

Nestled along the upper reaches of the Clyde River (the cleanest and most pristine waterway in Eastern Australia) lies the Clyde River Retreat – a haven of beauty, peace and tranquility. The perfect place to stay if you want to visit Pigeon House, The Castle or any of the other spectacular locations in Morton National Park or Budawang National Park.

We have 3 cabins for rent on 90 acres, for up to 16 guests.

The Clyde River Retreat is surrounded on all sides by State Forest and National Park, kilometres from the nearest neighbours (other than the native wildlife) it is a perfect place to get away from it all.

With over half a kilometre of river frontage, the retreat is perfect for fishing or swimming in the Clyde river, bush-walking in the local forests, or for use as a launching point for exploring the surrounding national parks.

For artists, writers and musicians, the retreat offers something unique – an unspoilt environment and a simple lifestyle that will recharge your creative energies and enrich your artistic endeavors.

The retreat has three separate cabins that can accommodate up to sixteen people – perfect for special-interest groups who need a place free from all distractions from the outside world.

Or for anyone who just needs a place of unparalleled privacy and seclusion, to de-stress or de-tox periodically.

Carisbrook Lodge

This listing is for the Carisbrook Lodge - 3 bedrooms, accommodation for up to 7 people. One bedroom has a queen bed, one bedroom has two single beds, and one bedroom has three single beds. There is a fully equipped kitchen, an internal toilet, and a bathroom with bath and shower. Laundry facilities are also available.

Other Cabins

See our separate listings for the other cabins on the retreat - the Budawang Cottage (2 bedrooms, accommodates up to 6 people) and the Didthul Cot (1 bedroom, accommodates 2 people).


We do allow some pets, but no cats please. Dogs are allowed but limited to one per cabin. They must be kept on a leash while outside on the retreat.

Other things to note

Our property is an intentionally rustic retreat - completely "off-grid", and in keeping with the natural surroundings. Our facilities may not be suitable for the elderly, the infirm, or for those with limited mobility. If you have any questions, please contact us to discuss before booking.
