Calabash Bay Lodge is a boutique luxury retreat for the discerning gourmet traveller in a unique and exemplary water-access only location at Berowra Waters on the Hawkesbury River. An easy weekend holiday escape for friends and families, or romantic getaway for couples, Calabash Bay Lodge offers a unique nature-based experience of the Australian wilderness and absolute waterfront way of life under an hour north of Sydney, New South Wales.
Whatever the occasion, Calabash Bay Lodge is a beautiful place to relax, indulge, and celebrate life. We invite you to share the experience with us.
A highlight of any stay is sitting on the barbecue deck, glass of fizz in hand, gazing over the water and eucalyptus-clad cliffs beyond.
There’s something special about gazing out at the misty Hawkesbury River and its stunning backdrop of eucalyptus-clad cliffs.
Throw a line from the pontoon and there’s a good chance you’ll catch something for dinner - does it get any better than this?
Calabash Bay truly is a beautiful spot... Many thanks for your efficient and friendly service, the whole experience was a pleasure.
Had a great time, didn’t want to come home! We will all have great memories of our time away together.
It’s summertime (well, almost) and the living is easy for the highglam, low-fuss weekend traveller

We’ve found the perfect weekend escape – an idyllic lodge set on the Hawkesbury
It was a really lovely two whole nights away which seems like a wonderful dream now!
..it would be hard to go past the degustation cooked by your own private chef
From day one… we feel as through we’ve moored at our spiritual home
Who knew that feeling so far away was possible so close to home?
