Resting in a township famed for its railway that first opened in 1911, this unique accommodation site offers a range of getaway options, all in keeping with the landscape and heritage.

Surrounded by soaring gum trees, and spanning four paddocks, guests can choose from an array of accommodation options at this rural address named Carriageways.

There are enough beds to suits singles, families and friends.

Visitors can select one of the four rattler carriage stays and reminisce on the era of train travel or opt for one of two spa cabins overlooking the countryside.


A shared vegetable patch, inground pool, onsite commercial kitchen and cool room, restaurant, function room and open-air chapel with its own wedding bell mean this property could allow its buyer to tap into the coveted wedding industry – with no guests left behind.


All this less than eight minutes from the township of Dungog, which is famed for its walking and cycling trails, quaint shops and hidden treasures.

And imagine all the puns you can use in your tourism brochure urging visitors to ‘get on board’.
