Wangat Lodge

Our lodge provides unique and affordable accommodation for larger family and friend groups. Set amongst the trees of our beautiful rainforest, a stay at Wangat Lodge will give your group time and space to properly connect and create memories away from the hustle and bustle of busy life. Many groups have been coming to Wangat Lodge for years (some more than 20!) - to them Wangat is their home away from home and a place they love. We'd love it to be yours too! 

Sleeping up to 46 with a generous dining/recreation hall, large and fully equipped commercial kitchen and outside communal areas. At Wangat you can explore the forest and the wild banks of the spectacular Chichester River or head further afield on a guided walk to discover Jerusalem Creek and it's wonderful waterfalls and pools or to the great strangling fig tree! Cool off in the Summer heat in one of our beautiful, big swimming holes or keep cosy in the Winter beside the fire. Search for the native wildlife; from the cheeky possums, abundant birdlife and noisy frogs to the shy wallabies, stealthy goanas and elusive platypi. We're all looking forward to welcoming you to Wangat!

The lodge is also a rare, inexpensive venue for weddings and retreats, conferences and workshops.
