The Clyde River Retreat is 3.5 hours drive south of Sydney, or 2.5 hours drive east from Canberra.
The recommended route to the retreat from the north is via Milton. Go through the main part of Milton, then turn right off the highway at Croobyar Road (at the traffic lights), then follow it as it becomes Woodstock Road, and then Woodburn Road – in total for about 15km from Milton. You turn right off Woodburn Road on to Clyde Ridge Road where the tarmac ends, and you follow the unsealed Clyde Ridge Road for another 15 km. Carisbrook Road is on your left. It is signposted, but if you miss the turning you will reach the concrete ford crossing the Clyde River (known locally as the “upside down” bridge). Don’t cross it – Carisbrook Road is immediately before the ford. About 500m up Carisbrook Road you will see our sign.
If you are coming from the south, the recommended route is via Wheelbarrow Road, which is on your left after you pass through Lake Tabourie (i.e. just before Burrill Lake). Turn left onto Woodburn Road then follow the directions as above.
If you have a SatNav/GPS system, it may find our address (56 Carisbrook Fire Rd, Morton, NSW 2538). If not, many systems allow you to enter our geographic location in one of the following formats:
Decimal Degrees: -35.424698, 150.237292
Lat/Long: 35°25’28.9″S 150°14’17.3″E
Note: Your SatNav (and also Google maps) may instead recommend you turn off the highway at Termeil and then follow the Old Highway, Middle Ridge Road & Brooman Road to get to Carisbrook Road – however, this route involves more unsealed roads than the recommended route, and those roads are also used by State Forestry logging trucks.
