About the House

Get away from it all and spend some time with the birds, the bees and the gorgeous sound of cascading waterfalls close by. This self-contained, off-the-grid eco cabin is perfect for couples or singles looking to relax and unwind in peace. Located 45 mins drive from the major centre of Armidale. Surrounded by picturesque farmland, bushland and overlooking the granite tops of Cathedral Rock National Park, you can enjoy the beauty our farm has to offer. Included in your stay is:

  • Platypus watching – spot the elusive monotreme along the Oaky River from the comfort of your cabin deck (bring your binoculars!).
  • Complimentary full breakfast on the first morning: bacon and eggs, homemade bread, milk, tea and coffee, jams and spreads and a choice of 3 cereals.
  • Exclusive fishing rights in our 4km of trout stream, regularly stocked with both Brown and Rainbow Trout.
  • Luxury bedding, linen and towels all provided. Complimentary bathrobes available too.

Don’t forget, Platypus Eco Cabin is also within a half hour drive of 4 different National Parks, 2 of which are World-Heritage listed.


Amazing views, beautiful location not far from multiple national parks and everything you would ever need for a weekend get away or long term stay. If peace and quiet is what you need, this place is a must.

This place is somewhere everyone needs to go. Everything is so well thought through - from the quality of materials to the nooks and chairs for sunlight and the comfort level of the bed. The landscape is breath-taking and certainly a creative inspiration. What a retreat for the soul!
