Dam It Getaway - a family-friendly experience
  • Room inside for everyone
  • The river running through Dam It Getaway
  • The pool and spa
  • Beautiful gardens with lots of nooks for hide and seek!
  • A home away from home

Dam It Getaway is a beautiful property set on 78 acres of farmland, situated 8km from Gloucester and only 30 minutes to the World Heritage Barrington Tops National Park.

The Bowman River runs through the property, take a walk to the river where you can go for a swim in summer, or go for a paddle in the canoe provided. The property has an outdoor pool and spa with magnificent views over the valley. The perfect place to sit back, relax and have a drink!

At Dam It Getaway you can choose from a three bedroom homestead, which sleeps six people comfortably or a two bedroom cabin, which sleeps four people. The pool and spa are conveniently located in the middle of both accommodation options.

Children have the space to run around without parents worrying about where they are, what they are doing or who they are annoying!

The river has a picnic area for a real country experience  - a country experience the children will not forget for a long time. Parents love this as well as it gives them time to spend with their children. Enjoy a country picnic after a morning swimming in the river, a get back to nature experience!

There is also the swimming pool and the heated spa, close enough to the house for the parents to watch their children while also relaxing. Children can explore the gardens, pick flowers, play hide and seek and run a round in the fresh country air.

If the weather turns inclement there is a table tennis table in the games room. There is a variety of DVDs and board games to keep them occupied and entertained.

Dam It Getaway is proud to be shortlisted in the family-friendly category of the 2010 TakeABreak Awards. Check out Dam It Getaway on takeabreak.com.au
