The Gunyah (aboriginal for meeting place, or place of shelter) is at the heart of the camp. Designed by Sydney architects, Nettleton Tribe, it is a chic space built high off the ground to enjoy the sea breeze and a wonderful position amongst the tree tops.
In Summer, the sliding doors open up for outdoor dining on the verandah, providing a bushy backdrop from which to enjoy meals and observe the goings on of our resident possums, sugar gliders and birds. In Winter, an open fire and candlelight bring warmth to the room, and cosy lounges are a perfect place for curling up on after dinner.
Resident guests are welcome to use the Gunyah throughout the day & evening and are free to help themselves to coffee & tea at their leisure. For conferences and small groups, the Gunyah becomes your own unique meeting space, a tranquil place in which to exchange ideas and get creative.
The Gunyah also welcomes non-resident guests for dinner (bookings are essential) and is regularly recommended in regional food guides in recognition of our commitment to great food featuring fresh local produce. Our current menus reflect a modern European influence on local grown and sourced produce, and change regularly according to the season. Children are welcome in the dining room and we cater for them specifically with their own menu. Prior notice of children dining is appreciated at the time of booking, and we do ask that children respect the right of other diners and our guests to enjoy the quiet ambience.
Please note the dining room only seats 40 people and at weekends and peak holiday periods we are regularly booked out. We recommend booking early to avoid disappointment.
Bookings are essential.
