Swagman’s Rest is luxury accommodation that will nourish your soul. You’ll love the secluded location and elevated aspect with glorious views across the Vacy and Paterson Valleys. And our location within 2 hours of Sydney, makes this the ideal weekend or long-stay escape which offers as much or as little as you want to do. It’s your retreat to enjoy as you wish.
Step inside to soaring cathedral ceilings and a warm and inviting interior with stunning views from every room. In winter, relax by the slow combustion fire and in summer lounge on the deck. Play games, watch TV, make use of Banjo’s excellent entertainment facilities or enjoy tranquil walks through the pristine bush trails. You will be spoilt for choice. The fully-appointed gourmet kitchen and alfresco deck with bbq makes cooking and dining a pleasure, but if you like to eat out, enjoy the variety of café and restaurant dining options on offer at the many nearby towns and villages.
Sleep in comfort with two beautifully appointed king size bedrooms each with ensuite; one with bath and disabled facilities. Wake to the sound of native birdsong. You’ll want to return to Swagman’s again and again.
