Getting to The Ridge is Easy!

Once you have reached Gloucester, you will find a roundabout at the end of the main street (Church St). This then becomes Thunderbolt's Way or Park Street on some GPS devices. 

At the roundabout veer slightly left onto Thunderbolts Way (or Park St), going past a service station, over a small bridge and then the Bowling Club on the left.  Follow this road over the Gloucester River bridge, and you will be in the 60km zone.

On the right hand side is Barrington Outdoor Adventure Centre, 1.3kms from the roundabout.

The entrance to The Ridge is on the left, opposite the Barrington Outdoor Adventure Centre, there is a large white sign "The Ridge - Luxury Eco-Holiday Accommodation" and the street No. 135.

Enter this driveway and follow the road for a little over 1 km, past the shed and over the grid, veering to the left at the fork in the road and winding your way up the hill.

The Ridge is on top of the hill at the end of this road.

You are about to enter The Ridge Gloucester to begin your luxury rural escape holiday.

"Peaceful and beautiful" We loved everything about this beautiful home and our fabulous holiday at The Ridge. The house located at the top of a hill has a tasteful decor. A fantastic house in a fantastic spot. Very clean and a lot of privacy. The kitchen was well equipped with all the essentials. When you are driving from the bottom up the hill, there are always a few wallabies jumping around. It is also very accessible to the town or bush walking and adventure centre. A huge thanks to the owner Dan for always promptly replying and providing wonderful service. We hope to come back to The Ridges one day!
