At a glance

Immerse yourselves in Australia's unique landscapes and wildlife when you stay at Calabash Bay Lodge, one of Australia’s most exceptional getaways. Its eco-luxury atmosphere and riverfront location makes it an unforgettable romantic accommodation experience.


Just a 45-minute drive north of the Sydney CBD or one hour from Sydney Airport, Calabash Bay Lodge is in a convenient location, yet feels utterly secluded. The boutique lodge is immersed in three national parks with their pristine eucalypt bushland and ancient sandstone cliffs.

Couples on a romantic getaway will love

Whether you're an adrenalin junkie, a history buff or someone just looking for relaxation, Calabash Bay Lodge has plenty to offer. The Hawkesbury River provides opportunities for boating, fishing, cruising, kayaking and swimming, and you can even take one of the lodge’s SUPs out on the calm waters. The area is also rich with Aboriginal and early settler history.

New South Wales accommodation

Calabash Bay Lodge is available exclusively for the rental of the whole lodge, with only one group staying at a time. The lodge features two king rooms, balconies with water views, two private ensuites and one main bathroom, luxury amenities and a private boat jetty.

Dining & leisure

For a truly special dining experience, book in an evening with Calabash’s in-house chefs who can offer either three- or five-course dinners featuring seasonal local produce.

If you feel like heading out from the lodge there are some wonderful culinary delights nearby. For a truly romantic dining experience, visit Peat's Bite. This secluded riverside restaurant is accessible only by boat or seaplane and has breathtaking views across to Bar Island and the Hawkesbury River. The cuisine is like no other, serving up modern Australian fare in a tapas-style degustation. Enjoy the live entertainment and enjoy a drink at the bar.

If being by the water makes it impossible for you to get fish and chips out of your mind then there's a lovely little place for you. The Berowra Waters Marina has a café open for casual daytime dining where you can sit by the water and enjoy a much loved classic.

There’s plenty for couples to do at Calabash Bay Lodge, from taking a private yoga or even SUP yoga class to kayaking around Hawkesbury’s ancient sandstone cliffs. If all you want to do is relax, you can sunbake by the river, curl up with a book borrowed from the lodge's impressive library or watch a movie in their Apple media centre collection.

Spa & wellbeing

Calabash Bay Lodge is a haven for those wanting to indulge in a little luxury. There are a number of spa and massage therapies services on request for you to take advantage of. Relaxation, remedial and hot stone massages are a beautiful indulgence for any romantic getaway.
