Ben Ricketts Environmental Preserve

Located in: Jamberoo
Ben Ricketts Environmental Preserve offers three self contained cabins surrounded by the rainforest of Jamberoo Mountain. The cabins can be booked separately or together.

**Please note that prices quoted on HomeAway are for single cabins only.**

Cabin 1 (Wombat) sleeps up to 6 people
Cabin 2 (Lyrebird) sleeps up to 7 people
Cabin 3(Sugar Glider) sleeps up to 4 people

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.

The cabin accommodation at Ben Ricketts is surrounded by 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 sheep 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.

We have three separate cabins to choose from.

Cabin 1 "Wombat": Sleeps 6 - four single bunks and a queen sofa bed

Cabin 1 is a comfortable cabin with a lovely open view from the deck, stretching out to Jamberoo valley in the distance. It sleeps six, with four single bunks and a queen sofa bed in the main living area.

Cabin 2 "Lyrebird": Sleeps 7 - five single bunks (2 in a separate room) and a queen sofa bed

Cabin 2 is the largest of the three cabins and would suit a family. It sleeps seven, with three single bunks and a queen sofa bed in the main living area, and a small separate room with two single bunks.

Cabin 3 "Sugar Glider": Sleeps 4 - two single bunks and a queen sofa bed

Cabin 3 is the smallest (and cutest) of the three cabins. In the wintertime it’s very cosy, and in summer the deck is a lovely place to relax and enjoy an evening drink. It sleeps four, with two single bunks and a queen sofa bed in the main living area.

There is plenty to do in the nearby area.

The property is two hours south of Sydney on the Illawarra escarpment, 8 km west of Jamberoo Village. The cabins are in close proximity to the coast and the Southern Highlands, well known areas for great beaches, festivals, markets, arts and crafts and fine dining. Barren Grounds Nature Reserve, Budderoo National Park, Gerringong Falls, Carrington Falls and Minnamurra Rainforest are ideal bushwalking destinations nearby.

Walks on Ben Ricketts There are several marked walking tracks on the property which pass through rainforest and very tall eucalypts, untouched creeks, and a waterfall, offering opportunities to see the rich variety of native plants and animals

Barren Grounds Nature Reserve There are a variety of walks at this Nature Reserve including the Griffiths Trail, an 8km loop taking in the Natural Stone Bridge and the IIllawarra Lookout.
