There are hundreds of unique birds, mammals and rare species here, even elusive brumbies and koalas. See the wedge tail eagles, frogs, and platypus in the cool clear waters of the creeks and rivers. Dig your own worms and we'll supply you with a fishing rod. This is a nature lover’s paradise and a special part of Australia, so don't miss it!
The Tops Organic Retreat has 2,000 acres at the World Heritage-listed Barrington Tops. It is one of the most spectacular and ideal places for rare and special birds in New South Wales, over 100 species can be found on the retreat. DID YOU KNOW - Only two places in Australia still have the ancient snow ferns? 'Kosciusko peaks' and 'Barrington Tops peaks.' They have been around for hundreds of millions of years and probably won’t last that long again, so be QUICK and come up to The Tops soon.
We have over 30 kilometres of bushwalking trails to take advantage of the Retreat’s diversity, from rainforest to timbered country, "The Tops" has it all. A wide range of free walking maps are provided to guests with information on the local area.
Try your luck and pan for gold.
Horse Riding can be arranged and costs just $60.00 for a beautiful two-hour ride over the hills and across the rivers.
Tennis Court & Swimming Pool
Take advantage of our full-size flood-lit court. We supply the racquets and balls!
