Calabash Bay Lodge - Berowra Waters


Calabash Bay Lodge is a boutique luxury retreat for the discerning traveller in a unique and exemplary water-access only location on the Hawkesbury River. Unlike other destinations further afield, Calabash Bay Lodge offers a unique experience of the Australian wilderness and absolute waterfront way of life, yet is only a heartbeat away from the bustling metropolis of Sydney, only one hour to the south.

Calabash Bay Lodge is surrounded by 360 degrees of riverfront national park. The pristine eucalypt bush and 200 million year old Hawkesbury sandstone cliffs that ring Calabash Bay Lodge offer an unparalleled nature-based luxury escape.

Winner of Unique Accommodation at the 2012 Greater Sydney Tourism Awards, Calabash Bay Lodge offers north-facing floor-to-ceiling views from every room to a four kilometre sweep of riverfront, with four beautifully-styled double bedrooms - all with access to balconies and water views - three bathrooms, and complimentary high-speed wireless internet.
