Only 1 hr north of Sydney on the Hawkesbury River at Berowra Waters, and surrounded by 3 National Parks, the award winning boat-access only Calabash Bay Lodge offers families, friends, and couples the experience of the Australian way of life on the absolute waterfront, with all the attendant luxury perks. We include plush linens, boat, kayaks, fishing rods, luxury REN toiletries, Foxtel, Netflix & Apple TV, and we're only a short boat ride to famed restaurants Berowra Waters Inn and Peat's Bite.
Calabash Bay Lodge is surrounded by pristine eucalypt bushland and the ancient sandstone cliffs fronting onto the Hawkesbury River at Berowra Waters. With three national parks on each side of our riverfront location, the Ku’ring-gai Chase, Marramarra, and Berowra Valley, Calabash Bay Lodge offers an unparalleled eco-luxury escape perfect for weekend getaways from Sydney, multigenerational or multiple family holidays, as well as romantic luxury couples retreats in celebration of honeymoons or babymoons, or just to spoil a lover. Calabash Bay Lodge is also a unique and inspiring venue for a corporate reward, strategy workshop, or health and wellness retreat.
All of Calabash Bay Lodge's rooms feature north-facing floor to ceiling views to a 4km sweep of riverfront that ends at our private pontoon and waterfront garden. You’ll have the deepest and most refreshing sleep in our four beautifully-appointed bedrooms with plush organic 1000 count cotton bedlinen – including 2 king rooms with AH Beard premium luxury beds that can be split into 2 twin beds for groups of family, friends or colleagues, and 2 with queen sized Sealy Posturepedic beds.

Check in via our private boat transfer is available from 4pm and check out is by 10am on the day of departure. We are however happy to be more flexible around check in and check out times depending on whether we have vacating or arriving guests on the same day. Early check in requests can hence only be confirmed on the day.
