Nature in all her glory

Ancient trees and sandstone ranges stand sentinel over Darkinjung Country where Wanderlust is located, and hundreds of species of native wildlife call this place home. Yellow-tailed black cockatoos chatter in the trees, sulphur crested cockies screech from the sky, and gem-coloured rosellas flit through the branches. From tiny sugar gliders and possums that will eat from your hand, to wombats that trundle through the campsites and roos and wallabies that hang out in mobs on the grass, Wanderlust is truly a natural sanctuary. It makes it the perfect place to reconnect with nature and offers a much-needed escape from the stress and noise of city life. We've even got domestic ducks and chickens, always a favourite with the kids!
Hiking through the bush, strolling along a nature trail, or simply peacefully sitting and watching the animals in their natural habitats, cuppa in hand
– no matter what you are doing, we know the experience of being a part of nature in all her glory will stay with you forever.

Permaculture and Aviary

We raise chickens, ducks and guinea fowl for the eggs and to provide natural fertiliser for our extensive permaculture gardens, so you can buy free-range eggs and veggies on site.

National Parks

With Wollemi and Yengo National Parks on the doorstep, there are thousands of acres of pristine bushland to be explored. We know some incredible spots: just ask.

Wildlife

Take a moment to slow down and and enjoy the rhythm of the bush and all the native wildlife that calls this place home.
