Most visitors to the Blue Mountains are familiar with popular locations like the Three Sisters, Wentworth Falls, or Jenolan Caves. While these places offer some great sights and are well established they also attract large numbers of people. As the bus loads of tourists pour into Katoomba every morning, anyone wishing to escape to the mountains for some rest and relaxation might begin to feel like they haven’t even left the city.
Situated on a stunning 600 acres of pristine Blue Mountains bushland, Wollemi Wilderness Retreat offers unique cabins for a private escape where you can relax and enjoy the easy pace of this world heritage wilderness. Wollemi Wilderness Retreat is situated away from the busy tourist centre of the Blue Mountains in an area of gorgeous bushland that borders the forgotten land of the Wollemi Wilderness. This very private sanctuary provides a completely stress free alternative where you can just relax and forget about day-to-day life.
In addition the Bilpin and Mt. Tomah regions—situated in the northern Blue Mountains—have a range of excellent attractions as well including the famous Zig-Zag Railway, the beautiful Mt. Tomah Botanical Gardens, or the quiet heritage village of Mt. Wilson. All of these are accessible via the beautiful and scenic drive along Bells Line Road which winds its way through some of the most spectacular Blue Mountains scenery to be found.
There are also many breathtaking natural locations only a short drive from Wollemi Wilderness Retreat like the easily spotted Mt. Banks, the Wollengambe River (perhaps the clearest river in the Blue Mountains), and the stunning cliff-top views of the Upper Grose Valley. You don’t often hear about this secret region of the Blue Mountains yet it contains so many hidden gems that will easily impress those who are seeking a more easy going Blue Mountains escape.
Staying at Wollemi Wilderness Retreat you will have the best of both worlds—it’s close enough to the main Blue Mountains tourist attractions, but far enough away to provide a place where you can retire from it all and enjoy the calm and peace of the real Blue Mountains.
The secluded mountain cabins offer premium self-contained accommodation for couples, families, creative workshops, and corporate groups. Six dwellings make up the retreat which encompass two properties near the northern Blue Mountains communities of Bilpin and Mt. Tomah. These wilderness accommodations range from an exotic Tee Pee studio, traditional timber slab cabins, right through to deluxe sandstone and timber bush houses. Dwellings are architecturally unique and feature their own special design features for an individual feel. These accommodations utilize eco-friendly waste management systems to preserve the surrounding natural environment.
This grand bush house is the largest of the six dwellings and is perfect for group or family stays. A large hall area and additional outside space make Wollemi House ideal for team development, conference events, or creative workshops that require a unique venue and location. It has been designed to incorporate the feel of the Blue Mountains bush and a raw natural aesthetic has been used throughout the interior of the house. Guests will feel refreshed and inspired by their stay in this magnificent building. Less than a minutes walk away are breathtaking views over Blue Mountains wilderness.
The second largest cabin is made from beautifully finished sandstone slabs, natural wood logs and features polished concrete floors. A separate bath-house with hot-tub and views over Bowen’s Creek Gorge add a touch of sophisticated luxury to this deluxe dwelling. An additional spa-bath inside allows Dream Cabin to be comfortably enjoyed by two couples. An impressive sandstone fireplace illuminates the open plan living area, creating a warm and cozy atmosphere on winter nights. An outside BBQ and deck area are perfect for summer evenings. Here you can enjoy excellent views over the gorge and is the starting point for a spectacular walk down to Bowen’s Creek.
This cute little dwelling was made for two! Incorporating the same natural aesthetic used prominently in most of the cabins, the Studio features a combination of bush elements and bohemian style. Views from the dwelling look north across the Blue Mountains wilderness. A luxury spa beneath large fold-out windows allows guests of the Love Studio to get close to nature while enjoying the comforts of modern living. A slow-combustion fireplace is perfect for warming the Studio on colder nights. A fully self-contained kitchen with gas cook-top is complimented by an outside BBQ and deck area.

The Tee Pee itself feels large and comfortable with a queen-size bed and the polished timber floorboards. Set amongst an interesting outcrop of rock formations, the Love Tee Pee has through-tree views over the beautiful Blue Mountains wilderness. Opening floor-to-ceiling windows in the annex allow the surrounding ridge-top bushland to flow into the very feel of this unique, “primitive-style” dwelling. A track behind the Love Tee Pee leads down the hill to various lookouts and the trail going down to Bowen’s Creek.
