Surround yourself with pristine eucalypt bushland and breathtaking views over the Hawkesbury River at Calabash Bay Lodge, a boutique and luxurious retreat located in the exclusive Berowra Waters. Accessed only by boat or a scenic seaplane, this unique and secluded waterfront escape is perfect for discerning gourmet travellers or those seeking a romantic spot for a weekend getaway.

With two national parks located on either side of the lodge, it is a perfect base to explore the stunning surrounding landscapes, including a handful of fantastic beaches, bushland and sandstone cliffs. Seek out secluded bays by boat, take a dip right in front of the lodge from your own private pontoon or explore the area's rich Aboriginal culture and history. 

Here, the adventurous souls can kayak along the iconic Hawkesbury River to discover the best scenic picnic spots or perhaps explore the Fretus Ruins on a bush walk along the Great North Walk trail. For those who prefer indulgence and relaxation, the lodge offers a myriad of peaceful spots and locations where you can unwind.

Soak up the water-front atmosphere and chill out in the Brazilian hammock or on a deck chair under the shade of the jacaranda tree, or perhaps find your inner peace with some morning yoga on the lodge's lawns or upstairs sun terrace. If you prefer, you can find a good book or magazine in the library, or head to the spacious lounge to watch a movie on the flat-screen smart TV (that also comes with Foxtel).

Boasting north facing floor to ceiling windows and fantastic views of the river from every room, this idyllic three-storey eco-retreat features a modern and spacious interior design that celebrates indoor/outdoor living. There is a large and fully equipped entertainers kitchen, where delicious home cooked meals can be prepared, and plenty of space both indoor and outdoor for your guests to come together for dining and social activities. Should you desire, you can also hire a private chef for a full gourmet experience.

The property has four beautifully appointed bedrooms, including two large king size bedrooms (with beds that can be split into singles if required) and two queen size bedrooms. Complete with luxury amenities, soft linens and plush pillows, each room boasts access to balconies and water views. There are three bathrooms, two of which are private ensuites.
