The trees are full of birds including King parrots, Lorikeets, Rosellas, Kookaburras, Wagtails, Cockatoos, Bell Birds & Whip Birds and during the day it is a chorus of nature.Huge sandstone rocks rise up from around the Billabong and the cabins and retreat centre perch on the escarpment, nesting in the trees overlooking the lotus garden.
If you are up early you will spot Black Wallabies, Blue Tongue & Monitor Lizards and if you are up late you can see Ring tail Possums, Sugar Gliders and micro bats.
At night the bush hums gently to the sound of Cicadas & frogs until the sun rises gently over the property, the lotus flowers blossom and the cycle starts again.

THE ENVIRONMENT

Billabong Retreat is certified eco nature Tourism by Eco Tourism Australia and is also a TAAl accredited Australian Quality Tourism Business and holder of a Department of Environment Eco-pass for running guided tours into the Wollemi National Park.​

From the Owners:

“We are a fully certified eco retreat. We built the retreat and operate the retreat with our environmental impact top of mind. Some of our achievements include:
Using recycled telegraph poles for doors & windows
Recycled timber decks
Photovoltaic power
Solar hot water
Rainwater collection
On-site grey water system
Avoid single use packaging
Recycled paper products

We are a fully certified eco-retreat so take our impact on the environment very seriously. We are self sufficient for water and waste disposal and operate a bio-pod worm farm waste water system. It is very important that only biodegradable waste is put down the toilets and sinks. Water is restricted to 50 litres of rain water per person per day. With short showers this amount is ample. We also have a solar hot water heating system and a grid connected photovoltaic electricity generating system. We aim to minimise recycling and landfill waste and we compost all our food waste.

We realise we can always do more and operate with a view of continuous improvement.
All rooms now feature ecodownunder linen”
