The Donnybrook Eco-Retreat is an off-grid property that provides luxury, safari style, glamping tents in 100 acres of gorgeously peaceful, lush Hunter Valley countryside.
There are three tents in total, all of which are doubles with queen size bed. One, the Billabong tent is self-contained with its own kitchenette, and sits by itself by a dam while the other two, the Valley View & Hill View, sit near each other on a small hillside.
The latter two tents are linked by raised decks and separated by a lovely cedar clad yurt which has a well equipped kitchen and dining area for the use of guests in both tents.
If looking for splendid isolation some might find them a little too close to each other and so will be happier with the Billabong tent, but they do allow for some degree of socializing with other guests if you so wish. Check out your options on the booking page here.
The accommodation is self catering but a farm fresh breakfast pack is included in the rate and, as the name suggests, features some organic products straight from their own farm.
You’ll find the surrounds remarkably peaceful, especially if you’re coming from Sydney. Feel free to wander around the 100 acres of bush and grassland with its farm animals; sheep, ducks, miniature goats and hens, and a huge amount of local wildlife.
You can take a swim in the indoor swimming pool (seasonal), borrow a bike from the retreat, go kayaking or fishing too, and of course there is lots to see in the surrounds; the iconic Hunter Valley.
Note: There is no Wifi at the retreat.

Donnybrook Eco is close to the Hunter River and within a half an hour’s drive of some of the most well known towns in the area; Maitland, Paterson and Morpeth for eg., as well as lots of its most famous wineries and restaurants.
The journey by car from Sydney should take less than two hours.
WHAT OTHER GUESTS SAY:
“Such a lovely spot with a great view, such a relaxing and calm change from living in the city. We booked a hot air balloon ride and this was the perfect place to spend the remaining of the weekend chilling….”
“Wonderful: It was a great place for a weekend away. There was the privacy of your own deck where you can enjoy food and drinks. The yurt (or kitchen) was very convenient to prepare food. It was equipped with a gas stove, kettle and a fridge for each tent stocked with eggs, bacon, and pancake mix. The bed was comfortable and the shower hot and strong. Listening to the frogs and insects into the night was lovely….”
