Description

Take a breath of fresh air and step back in time. These unique stone/slab huts, located in the picturesque Moonbah Valley region of the New South Wales Snowy Mountains (15 minutes drive from the ski resort town of Jindabyne), enjoy private frontage to the Blue Ribbon declared Moonbah River - the regions most pristine trout stream - (complete with resident platypus). The Lake Hut also fronts a small private lake containing brown, brook and rainbow trout.

"Moonbah Hut looks great on the website, almost too good to be true. But guess what? It is true!! No enhanced photos. Its not so much a hut but an experience.The peace and quiet, the isolation,the fauna, the fresh air, the space to relax and escape whatever you're trying to escape. Inspirational stuff indeed. Oh and a great shower as well. Wish the place was ours but as that isn't going to happen we'll have to settle with going back again at the first opportunity. A truly wonderful part of the country. Don't hesitate, just GO!!!! Dale & Belinda

Explore the bordering Kosciuszko National Park (150 m from the Lake Hut & 30m from the River Hut).
Savor the mountain air and clear night skies with a gazillion stars - an astronomer's paradise. Go for a walk and see brumbies, wild deer, wombats, 60 plus species of birdlife.....take a picture.....paint a picture.....the scenery is breathtaking:

"Couldn't of had a more enjoyable time if we tried. Wildlife galore - the wombat down by the river was so cute - looked just like the RSPCA ad, but without the bandage! The kangas, emu and brumby harem were great. At night, who needs TV? The frogs lulled us to sleep and the cockatoos visited in the morning. Thanks Brett, we had a fantastic time & look forward to visiting again".Darren & Claire, Canberra.

If you're feeling particularly invigorated, go mountain bike riding, (Norco 24 speed suspension bikes are available for hire), or maybe take a dip in the cool, crystal clear waters of the Moonbah River.


If all this sounds a little too tiring, just sit in the rocking chair on the verandah and read a book.

The huts are very cosy (even in -15c) and the Lake Hut sleeps a maximum 4 people, ideally 2 adults and 2 young children & the River Hut a maximum 5 persons. There are 'inside' bathrooms, (no outhouses here).

Local telephone is connected, however you can make long distance calls reverse charges, if required.

The bedding is high quality and all beds have electric blankets.

The fishing is outstanding. Expert guiding, tuition and or fly tying, can be arranged. (Rods and all gear required, are available for hire).

Both of the hut's feature huge, stone open fireplaces and with snow on either Christmas or Boxing Day, on 6 of the past 9 years, the fireplaces can be enjoyed on most nights of the year. There is also a wood stove (and a twin electric hotplate) for cooking and a small fridge/freezer to store your catch in. All cutlery, crockery, cookware, etc is supplied.

There are few modern appliances, as the huts are very traditional - No television reception or playstations!

Moonbah Huts are the ideal and unique summer, or winter, getaways. Unfortunately Moonbah Huts are not suitable for pets.

Prices for the Lake Hut range from $245-$350 per night & the River Hut from $295-$495 per night, depending on time of year, number of guests and duration of stay.

Minimum 2 night stay.

The Huts have hosted the Channel 7 Sunrise program & Channel 9's The Living Room and have featured in numerous national and international magazines.

"Amazing secluded retreat" We loved our stay here. It was a great way to escape the real world for a little bit. Great romantic getaway with no tv, phone, WiFi or even phone service. The stars are amazing here because of it. There was so much wildlife that I can’t list them all. The detail to the cabins was amazing and I simply loved the beds. And of course we treasured our weekend dog Buster and our porch chooks. We would definitely come back again!

"Character and charm" Stayed here for two nights and found it rather delightful. A beautiful setting, outstanding view and comfortable. Some very lovely touches around the cottage. Plenty of old world charm , I felt like a pioneer/ early settler sitting on the rocking chair on the veranda of the river cottage. Brett was very welcoming and Buster the border collie paid us a visit every now and then. Just a couple of things would make it even better and that would be a light above the sink In the kitchen as the cottage is quite dark. Some tea light candles would add to the ambience and a table on the front veranda. But Moonbah Huts is a very special place and offers an experience as well as comfortable accommodation.

"Perfect getaway"The perfect place to get away from it all, and still enjoy creature comforts. The River Hut has every feature for a perfectly comfortable stay. The location is stunningly beautiful. Cross the river, and a walk in the Kosciuszko National Park is on your doorstep. The wildlife is amazing. We had a wonderful anniversary long weekend, thank you Brett. Buster and the friendly chickens are an added bonus!!
