Bindo Creek Cabins

Thursday, November 28, 2002
Get a slice of Olympic memorabilia when you spend a night in a 2000 Olympics cabin.

Chris and Janet McEwen can claim to have been part of Sydney’s Olympic Games. Well, at least the cabins on their fantastic NSW property can... These cabins were part of the Olympic Village during the games and the enterprising couple bought them when the games finished. With the help of semi-trailers they relocated them to their new property which is 1100m above sea level.

Bindo Creek Cabins are on 40ha of land and enjoy 360º views across valleys, farms, mountains and forests. Every room has a view. Bindo Creek runs through the property and the four cabins have private frontage to its crystal waters. There you can fish for trout, try to spot a platypus or just spread out a rug, unpack a hamper and enjoy the solitude of a bush picnic.

The self-contained cabins, with the wonderful names of Snowgum, Wollemi, Radiata and Cypress, have two bedrooms, full bathroom and an open fireplace for frosty or snowy winter mornings.

The cabins are welcoming and comfortable enough to just relax in and around, but if you're looking for activity, there's lots around.

Stone Hedge is a country house set amongst cottage gardens and encircled by dry stone walls. It has private access to the trout-filled Duckmaloi River.

Perfect for groups of up to 15 or several families, every thought has been given to comfort in the house. It has six well-appointed bedrooms, two of which interconnect. The other four rooms have single beds, some have ensuite facilities and one offers full disabled facilities.

The large country-style timber kitchen is equipped with everything you could possibly need. It has two refrigerators, microwave, dishwasher and gas stove and oven. The separate dining room has two tables, lots of comfortable chairs and can be arranged as you wish. There are polished floorboards and you have extensive views of the gardens.

Table tennis and pool are available in the games room and there are plenty of board games, puzzles, cards and books for your use.

Oberon has an 18-hole golf course with great scenery, challenging holes and a friendly population of kangaroos.

A private walking trail takes you to the creek via the bush where you might spot native wildlife.

Fly, lure or bait fishing in Lake Oberon is sure to give you some trout to cook for dinner and if you fancy mushrooms there are huge areas of them in the State Forest’s pine plantations.

You can go horseriding along a guided trail and maybe stop off to do a bit of fossicking. The Oberon Visitors Centre or Department of Mineral Resources can assist with further information. You can hire a tennis court in Oberon and there is a large outdoor heated pool in the town. In warm months the creek’s clear waters are ideal for a swim.


Oberon, two-and-a-half hours west of Sydney.
