Wallaby Gully Cottage is a retreat on a rural property of over 40 acres on the edge of the Watagan Mountains, with beautiful views and nature at your doorstep. Just 1.5 hours north from Sydney & 15 minutes from Cessnock allowing you to unwind, listen to the wind in the trees, and observe the local bird and wildlife.
Listen to the local birds, including lyrebirds, king parrots, black cockatoos and many other species. We have two large wedgetail eagle nests up the mountain and you can often see them soaring in the updrafts they are a sight to behold!
Our local wombat, wallabies and kangaroos come down to graze in the surrounding paddocks most days. At night, wombats come out to feed and the local possum population occasionally hold a gathering in the bush!
Due to our location mobile phone/internet reception is patchy and network dependent for texting, phone calls & internet, please note it's limited and streaming may or may not work.
Wallaby Gully Cottage is self catering with a convection microwave & outdoor BBQ
A light complimentary Breakfast is provided.
There are friendly farm animals on the property.

All reservations operate under a strict No-Party & excessive noise policy as this property is in a residential area. Failure to comply can put the security bond into jeopardy.
Prior to arrival, Weekenda will require you to sign an electronic guest registration prior to arrival which will ask for ID (drivers licence or passport), list your guests with contact phone or email for Government Covid reporting, and to re-accept the Weekenda T&C's. Access Codes are only released to registered guests.
As always, but ever so more due to recent times, we strongly encourage any holiday reservations to obtain a 3rd party Domestic Travel Insurance Policy to cover you for all manners of matters which may restrict travel. This is particularly helpful for things like Hunter Valley Concert cancellations or medical emergencies for which we don't provide refunds and which fall under our standard cancellation terms irrespective of the reason. We suggest reviewing policies with 'Cover-More', 'Travel Insurance Direct' & 'INSUREANDGO'..
Please also note that we may have installed a Wifi security camera at the front entrance of the property. We are progressively rolling these out through every property in 2022.
We look forward to having you stay with us.
