The Gunyah Restaurant


The Gunyah (aboriginal for meeting place, or place of shelter) is the heart of the camp.


Designed by Sydney architects Nettleton Tribe , the Gunyah is a unique space, built high off the ground to enjoy the sea breeze and a wonderful position amongst the tree tops.

In the warmer months the sliding doors open up for outdoor dining on the verandah, providing a bushy backdrop to candlelit meals and to observe the goings on of our resident possums, sugargliders and colourful birdlife.

In winter an open fire with cosy lounges is the perfect place to curl up on after dinner with a nightcap, perhaps swap a few travelling tales with other guests, or enjoy a game of cards.

The Gunyah is our dining room, reception and communal lounge and is also where you go for free Wi-Fi and to charge phones. Guests are welcome to help themselves to tea or coffee during the day (or for some, the middle of the night!) or order an espresso style coffee. Feeling a bit peckish? A delicious bar menu is available from 2pm each day and the Sundowner deck is the perfect place to meet for a late afternoon drink, enjoy some and watch the changing light of the bush as the sun disappears for the evening.

 The Gunyah also makes for a beautifully romantic wedding venue and inspirational space for small meetings and corporate retreats.

The Gunyah welcomes a limited number of non-resident guests for breakfast and dinner, bookings are essential. Please call 02-4441 7299 to make a reservation.  The Gunyah is fully licensed and does not allow BYO.

This is place is just a skip from one of the most beautiful white-sand beaches we have ever seen
