Just a 20 minute drive from Dorrigo, sitting right on top of its very own mountain, Mt Christopherson Retreat offers you comfort, seclusion and whatever experience you’re searching for.
Do you long to relax, unwind and rejuvenate your soul? Or do you want to reconnect with family and friends?
Perhaps a weekend excursion for your art, writing or photography group?
The Retreat consists of 3 separate units which can be booked separately or together. There is a self-contained apartment with disabled access, perfect for a romantic weekend for a couple, and 2 other levels each with 2 bedrooms, a bathroom and kitchenette. The whole Retreat caters for groups of up to 5 couples or 14 individuals – and you can contact us for options to accommodate more.
When you stay at Mt Christopherson you need never leave – everything is here for you. The Retreat sits above 200 acres of conservation rainforest overlooking the verdant farmland of the Dorrigo Plateau. Wander through the extensive manicured gardens, discover secluded ponds and sun-bathed benches, or find your way to the lookouts for spectacular uninterrupted vistas. With stunning views stretching far to the east, you will marvel at sunrises, moonrises and occasional thunderstorms crackling over the coast.
At over 1000 metres elevation, the mountain sometimes vanishes into an other-worldly mist. In winter, crisp nights give way to warm sunny days. And while the mountain summer is cooler, the large swimming pool can be welcome when you’ve spent a day exploring the area.
For a more contemplative stay there is a meditation yurt and a magical basalt labyrinth hidden down a rainforest path. Your only company will be the native birds, the local koalas and the serene silence.
The Retreat is an idyllic location for an extended family gathering and a beautiful venue for a most memorable wedding. When coupled with Ralda’s Cottage up to 21 guests can stay on the property.
Mt Christopherson is also the perfect base to explore the myriad national parks of the World Heritage Gondwana Rainforests. Dorrigo, New England, Cathedral Rocks and Guy Fawkes National Parks are all within easy reach.
Mt Christopherson is just 19km on a sealed road from the lovely town of Dorrigo, another 30 minutes gets you to the bustle of Bellingen. Coffs Harbour, Armidale and Grafton are all within 90 minutes.
Make sure to stay a few nights to enjoy all that Dorrigo accommodation has to offer.
Additonal accommodation option
