Ben Ricketts Mountain Cabins

Accommodation

Ben Ricketts is an ideal retreat for groups, families and individuals, set within the tall forest of the Illawarra Escarpment. There are three fully equipped self-catering cabins available for holiday rental.

Be woken up by lyrebirds and spend the day enjoying the rainforest, creeks, glades and open paddocks. Ben Ricketts is home to echidnas, wombats, swamp wallabies, greater gliders and a great variety of birds. Listen to the lyrebirds, bowerbirds, catbirds, whipbirds, kookaburras and sugar gliders.

Friendly goats graze the grassed areas of the property and free range chooks lay fresh eggs daily.

The cabin accommodation at Ben Ricketts is surrounded by rainforest and abundant bird and animal life. Sitting on the deck of one of the cabins is a great place to watch the birds and listen to the frogs as the sun goes down behind the mountain.

Children are welcome, with plenty of open space for them to play, friendly goats to meet, and lots of nature to discover. There are marked walking trails on the property that start close to the cabins.

There are three self-catering cabins at Ben Ricketts, each with a fully equipped kitchen, shower facilities, a slow combustion wood heater and an electric heater. All beds have pillows, blankets and doonas. You need to bring your own sheets, pillowslips, towels, personal needs, indoor and outdoor footwear, torch and food. The cabins are a smoke-free zone and pets are not permitted.
