barranca: a narrow, winding river gorge.

barranca in Kangaroo Valley is an exclusive retreat offering luxury accommodation for the discerning traveller as well as a (soon-to be) state of the art function space. Set on 1,000 acres in a rural paradise framed by an amazing amphitheatre of sandstone escarpments that enclose a lush river valley, rich and diverse with wildlife and glorious temperate rainforests.

Our luxury villas overlooking the picturesque escarpment, offer the perfect getaway for any occasion from a romantic retreat to a special occasion, barranca is geared towards rest and relaxation in an eco-luxe environment.

Archies at barranca (coming soon) will be an architecturally designed equine training centre ideal for Corporate Retreats, Weddings and Functions for up to 150 people.

We have a two night minimum stay policy, three night minimum stay for long weekends. The perfect amount of time to unwind.

The villas are well equipped with a flat-screen TV and BlueTooth speaker, cooking utensils, microwave, Nespresso machine, coffee and tea, sugar, salt and pepper. Fresh water is supplied throughout the farm from springs high in the mountains. Luxury appointed linen is also supplied.

The cabins are air-conditioned and there are fireplaces. Firewood will be stacked near your door for your convenience.

Kangaroo Valley is the quintessential small town which has a bakery, cafes, a small supermarket and bottle shop for some supplies, however if you’re looking to stock up or prepare for a big weekend cook up then we recommend you stop somewhere like Bowral or Moss Vale on the way to stock up.

You will need to bring all your food and beverages. Everything else is provided. {Oh and marshmallows, you’ll need marshmallows to toast over the firepit.}

Laundry facilities are located at Caretakers quarters. There is washing powder there for your use.

All of our villas have WIFI via NBN satellite. The internet speed is strong enough, however, we’re in the process of building a satellite on the escarpment which will create super-high speed internet and will be in operation later this year

And depending on your individual carrier, mobile reception may be limited, so we encourage you to either connect via WiFi of switch off and relax.

Check-in time is 3 pm and check-out time is 11 am. Should you wish to vary this please let us know in advance and we will do everything possible to accommodate you.

The key to your villa will be in the door waiting for you. You don’t need to check in so please go straight to your villa, take your shoes off and enjoy your stay. If you arrive after dark the lights will be left on for you.

We allow all ages at barranca, however as our fencing is not child-safe we recommend 8 years an over. Adults travelling with children must accept full responsibility for their supervision and ensure they do not disrupt guest enjoyment or endanger themselves, our animals or native wildlife. Any damages, breakages or additional cleaning will be charged. Safety and the quietly relaxed nature of staying at barranca are important priorities to us.

Unfortunately, pets cannot stay at barranca for the safety of our animals and local wildlife, but there are boarding kennels in Kangaroo Valley (phone 02 4465 1043).

Each villa has its own Robert Plumb fire pit for you to enjoy. We only require that you be aware of local fire bans, weather conditions and follow the safety guidelines provided in your compendium in your villa. Bushfire is the biggest threat to our unspoilt bushland, so we ask that you please act responsibly.

Please contact us via our contact form below if you have any more questions or you need any more information. We also have a detailed compendium waiting in your villa.
