Arbor Escape is settled in the foothills of the World Heritage-listed, Wollemi National Park. Nestled on the banks of the Colo River, our beautiful farm stay has direct frontage to one of the most pristine waterways left in NSW.

Thoughtfully designed for weekend getaways for couples, winter escapes or the perfect location for an intimate gathering with friends.

Book your stay at one of the most authentic luxury farm stays NSW has to offer.

The space
Our farm stay comfortably sleeps 6 guests while providing plenty of space for outdoor gatherings. Three uniquely designed bedrooms feature plush mattresses and luxury linen. Each room has its own private access onto the wrap-around veranda (get in touch to discuss sleeping arrangements for more than 6 people)

Our kitchen is fully equipped to whip up a gourmet breakfast or cater for an intimate dinner party. For nights under the stars, make use of our 4-burner gas BBQ, or try your hand at cooking over a flame grill with our large 1.5 meter fire pit.

Gather in doors for a cozy meal, watch the sunset high up on the wrap-around veranda with a cheese platter, chat around the firepit long into the night or hang out by the cellar enjoying some of the local Hawkesbury wines. Fancy a picnic by the river? Pack a basket & an esky and head down to enjoy your own private picnic spot with direct access to the river

Our bathroom features a freestanding stone tub with luxury bath towels and Australian sourced body products to pamper yourself.

Browse our home library or stargaze through our telescope – there are so many ways to unwind at Arbor Escape.

With free WIFI, ducted air conditioning and a large wood burning fireplace for winter nights, every creature comfort is at your fingertips.

Where you’ll be

Upper Colo, New South Wales, Australia

Just 90 minutes from Sydney's CBD, you’ll find our 13-acre farm tucked away on the banks of the Colo River.

Nestled amongst native bushland, which adjoins the Wollemi National Park, we welcome you to Arbor Escape. An invitation to slow down and switch off.

The Valley....
You’ll drive through the valley for 15 minutes alongside the Colo River before you reach our farm. This meander will give you time to unwind. Take in the views of the mountains on either side of the road, as you pass by long stretches of lush green farmland.

The River....
One of the cleanest rivers remaining in NSW, the Colo River is a low-flowing waterway, with deeper spots for swimming and kayaking. Right on the water’s edge, we’ve set up a private, shady picnic spot just for our guests.

Arbor Escape is set on private river frontage, offering spots to paddle and rock hop through the waters. Imagine a photo shoot wading ankle deep through the stream against nature’s unfiltered backdrop.
