Nestled alongside the upper reaches of the Clyde River, acknowledged to be the cleanest and most pristine waterway in Eastern Australia, lies the Clyde River Retreat – a haven of beauty, peace and tranquility.

This is a special place – surrounded on all sides by State Forest and National Park, miles from the nearest neighbours (other than the resident native wildlife) it is a perfect place to get away from it all.

With almost a kilometre of river frontage, the retreat is perfect for fishing or swimming in the Clyde river, bush-walking in the local forests, or for use as a launching point for exploring the surrounding national parks. In particular, the Clyde River Retreat is the perfect accommodation for visiting the spectacular Pigeon House Mountain (Didthul), or the many other scenic bushwalks in Morton National park. We are the nearest accommodation to the Clyde River Berry Farm (open in December and January).

For artists, writers and musicians, the retreat offers something unique – an unspoilt environment and a simple lifestyle that will recharge your creative energies and enrich your artistic endeavors.

The retreat can easily accommodate up to sixteen guests (up to twenty with sufficient prior notice) in four separate cabinsĀ – perfect for extended family groups or special-interest groups who need a place free from all distractions from the outside world.

Or for anyone who just needs a place of unparalleled privacy and seclusion, to de-stress or de-tox periodically.

You can spend all your time on the Retreat, or you can explore the local area. You are only 30 minutes from many of the beautiful beaches of the South Coast, or from the lovely villages of Milton and Nelligen. Ulladulla and Bateman’s Bay are also nearby.

Ross Higson and Joanne Gwatkin-Williams manage the Clyde River Retreat. We look forward to seeing you here!
