Description

Perched on a ridge of the Great Dividing Range at 650 metres, stay in style at ecoRidge Hideaway Bed and Breakfast. Choose from three fully self-contained chalets built in accordance with eco-friendly practices to minimise your carbon footprints.

Contemplate breathtaking views to the surrounding peaks and valleys, unforgettable sunrises and living work of art through the ever changing daylight. On 50 acres of serene nature, the mountain retreat is also home to a multitude of birds and wildlife you will enjoy spotting from your deck. Take a walk on the bush property trail, climb up to the top of Mount Campbell, the highest peak in the area, or explore the Historical Gorman's Gap track, the first bullock wagon supply route up the escarpment.
