Welcome to The Tops Organic Retreat winter newsletter.

The Ladybug sustainable pod lands at Barrington Tops

A new idea in sustainable living is being developed at the retreat.  Based on a ladybug concept this sustainable pod is half underground and total self sufficient creating its own energy, food, water and disposing of its own wastes.


The pods are being developed by Sydney architect Chris Haughton of Shed Archectural Studios in Surry Hills.  Chris brings flair and creativity to these 'living for the future'  homes that are currently designed for one couple, but on the drawing boards are ideas for two and three bedroomed pods.

John's garden grows for master chef guests  Organic fruits & wine

John's organic garden will be in full flourish for the Master Chef guests in October. Leeks, lettuce, beetroot, beans, brasicas and many other healthy organic delights will be served to these most discerning of guests who will be staying for 7 days and enjoying Sri Lankan food and other specialities that Sharini creates from the proceeds of the garden.

Sharini specialises in Sri-Lankan curries and also finds it a pleasure to cook for vegan and vegetarian guests.


Many people have special diets or food allergies. The Tops Organic Restaurant caters for gluten free, lactose free and many other special diets. Please let us know in advance so we can look after you.




Perfect pampering at The Tops
The Tops is a perfect place for pampering, whether it is having a massage, soaking in a king spa, or just allowing the senses to regenerate sitting on a balcony listening to the bellbirds, while sipping on some Rosnay organic wine.



We have been very privelidged in the past 3 months to be party to many special days when 'that question' is popped.   It is a great reminder to us of the beauty of the retreat when guests return a year later remembering the romance and once again allowing themselves to enjoy being at one with nature and each other.
