The Lodge at Tinnenburra is a secluded getaway just 50 minutes from Canberra. Located above the most picturesque waterfalls on the Queanbeyan River; the Lodge started as a humble fishing cabin and has evolved over the years into a cozy, off grid sustainable eco-house. 

Perfect for a family weekend away or a get together with friends to enjoy the beauty of the surrounds. The drive in through neighbouring farms and national parks sets the tone for the escape from the suburban surrounds of the Canberra region. Enjoy exploring the farm, the surrounding Yanununbeyan National Park or exploring along the gorges and flats of the river. 

There is an amazing array or native flora and fauna - spot the Platypus in the river gorges; the wombats on the flats in the evenings; the wallabies and kangaroos grazing in the paddocks nearby and more.

The cosy dwelling with timber panelled feature walls in nestled on a bush property spanning over 1000 acres. There are three bedrooms, a cosy lounge area with a wood burning fireplace, a well equip kitchen with an oven/stove, bathroom with flushing toilet and hot shower. Guests will love the extensive views of the waterfalls and rapids of the Queanbeyan River adjacent.  

A wonderful escape, this property will allow you to contemplate all that nature provides in a unique setting. It's a haven from our hectic world, where you can fish the river, bush walk, mountain bike or just enjoy the magic setting, the choice is yours!

The Lodge at Tinnenburra is located just 50 minutes from Canberra CBD, just over an hour to the historic hub of Braidwood and 30 minutes from the quaint village of Captains Flat - where you'll find a great pub, RSL & Citizens Club and monthly markets.

The lodge was beautifully equipped - everything was top quality
The location was beautiful - the sound of the river and the waterfall was Amazing and we can’t wait to go back .
Ross was a very helpful and accomodating host .
Our group were a bit too old for the steep walk down to the river … it would be ideal if there was a path to the river making it more accessible for all
However there were plenty of places to explore and photograph .
We see a big black snake and lots of bird life.
Fantastic weekend
The road in has recently been graded and made for an easy trip in… we had 4WD… but a larger sedan would be ok

First time booking through Hipcamp, wasn't sure what to expect.
The Lodge was beautiful & nicely appointed. Off grid living at its finest. The surroundings were superb. Plenty to explore, including a raging river very close by. The drive in on the dirt road took us about an hour, it was difficult to navigate because of the dips and holes. Our car is a Subaru Impreza 4WD, a bigger 4WD would have made the trip easier and quicker. The mattresses on the beds are very firm we found them to hard, apart from that our stay was extremely enjoyable and we look forward to a return trip😊

The view from the bedroom balcony. The river is raging.

The place was absolutely gorgeous! The view is jawdropping and so tranquil. There were so many lovely and welcoming personal touches, from the additional blankets, games, indoor plants, toiletries, and a complimentary bottle of homemade apple cider. We managed to come at the last of the wildflower season so there was yellow, whites and pinks blanketing the hills. The view of the night sky is absoutely breathtaking.

I would highly recommend a 4 wheel drive, as the drive in was a little hairy after the recent rains, but pushing on through the rough terrain was totally worth it once you get to the lodge.

Definitely bring hiking boots (and possibly a weed whacker) and you can find a path down to the riverbed from the lodge, which was well worth the adventure.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Lodge and would love to come back and stay again.

View from the bed, which was super comfortable. Sunset on the hill near the lodge.Another snap of the pondFront of the lodge.

Beautifully presented accommodation @The Lodge in a magical bush location.
Wake up to the sounds of birds and the river flowing below.

Spent time with family clambering through bush and over rocks to the waterfall. Couldn’t make the beach to go for a swim as the river was raging and the track impassable.

Wildflowers filled the surrounding fields, and we were lucky enough to spot a platypus when the river subsided.

Being offline reconnecting with family, playing board games, having barbecues and conversation was priceless.

Additional notes:
The road in was pretty gnarly, 4WD a
must (our kids got bogged and needed rescuing, pulled the car out and left it at the start of the track) the road had deep holes and crevices.
Access to the river is difficult, not for the faint hearted and unfit.

Absolutely loved our weekend away. The house is fabulous, super comfy with everything you'd need for a home away from home. The scenery is stunning and going to sleep listening to the sound of the river is pure bliss! Highly recommend for small groups or families

* The road in isn't great, recommend either a AWD or 4WD but can manage okay in a car that has a bit of height from the ground
* Ignore Google maps! When you think you are lost, you're not, just keep going :)
* You'll need to bush-bash a bit to get down to the river, going towards the falls, walk until you see the dead trees marking a big X and then head down vertically - wear long socks or pants.
* The water is cold :)

Thanks for having us Ross!
