Dorrigo NSW 2453
Just a 20 minute drive from Dorrigo, towards the mountain top, Ralda’s Cottage offers you the perfect place to relax, unwind, reconnect and rejuvenate your soul. With three bedrooms (sleeping up to 7 people), a large kitchen and generous living room, it’s the go-to place for just about any traveller – a romantic weekend away, friends’ get together, family holiday or simply a stopover as part of your onward journey.
The wide verandah overlooking the Dorrigo Plateau is the perfect place to relax with a BBQ and a glass of wine while you watch the sun set and the moon rise. Enjoying the company of friends and family in gorgeous surroundings, sharing a meal and a laugh is what makes a few days Ralda’s Cottage such a pleasure.
As part of the Mt Christopherson accommodation property, you can enjoy our 200 acres of lush conservation rainforest and all the facilities. Wander through the extensive manicured gardens, discover secluded ponds and sun-bathed benches, or visit the lookouts for spectacular uninterrupted vistas as far as the coast. While the mountains are cooler in summer, the large swimming pool can be welcome after a day exploring the area. All this less than a km – a quick drive or an energetic walk – to the top.
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.
Ralda’s Cottage is 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, and 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.
You’re welcome to bring your well-behaved pet, however keep in mind you cannot take them into national parks.
