NSW National Parks has just announced the opening of two newly refurbished nature cabins in the Blue Mountains National Parks – and you can book them rn!


Galong cabins are nestled in the gorgeous Megalong Valley on Gundungurra Country. They’ve been named by the traditional Gundungurra owners after local trees in the area – Wirruumba, meaning Stringybark, and Dhurrumbyan, meaning Big white gum. 

The cabins used to be used by horse pack saddlers in the 1970s and have now been restored to offer Explorers a unique place to explore the Bluies, with all the creature comforts.


Galong Cabins – What’s inside?

Each of the cabins has two bedrooms to sleep four people as well as a full kitchen, hot showers, firepit, air-con, and a veranda, perfect for watching the sunset over the surrounding Kanangra wilderness. 

The cabins are situated not too far from Dunphys Campground, and offer close access to day walks along the Cox River and even parts of the multi-day Six Foot Track.

The cabins are remote (so come stocked and prepared!) and intentionally don’t offer Wi-Fi so you can properly disconnect while out in the bush. There’s also only tank water available, which needs to be treated or boiled before drinking, so could be handy to bring some with you too.

How much do the cabins cost?

The weekend rate is from $300 a night with a minimum three night stay, and the weekday rate is from $250 a night with a minimum four night stay. 

Got more than three mates who are keen? Book both cabins together!

You could be one of the first people to stay in these cosy refurbished cottages. Book yourself in for a long weekend in nature!
