Nestled amongst the foothills of World Heritage-listed Mt Barney National Park, Mt Barney Lodge attracts an array of guests all seeking to experience nature, serenity and pure wilderness.

Walks into Mt Barney National Park begin directly from the Lodge and range from epic adventures, a full day walk up Mt Barney, or a leisurely stroll along the banks of the Logan River.

With the Logan River passing right by, the Lodge is the perfect starting point to explore secluded waterholes, and secret waterfalls.

For those wanting to take it easy and enjoy the wildlife in the area, there are plenty of opportunities to spot birds, reptiles, frogs, mammals, or take in the magnificent displays of wildflowers within the National Park.
