The Gordon Country Way..
Gordon Country is a private eco-tourism property bordering on the Great Dividing Range and incorporating large beautiful reaches of rain forest. Having been passed on through generations, we operate in a sustainable manner working in harmony and synergy with nature and the magnificent countryside we treasure and the heritage we are proud of.
We offer an authentic family friendly rustic getaway like no other, where children can explore the freedom of the Australian outback and adults can revel in adventure activities or just relax and unwind. And yes, your beloved pets are always welcome!
With kilometres of 4WD, biking and horse tracks – adventure is definitely built into every stay but if hiking or fishing is more your style, pack up your back pack and put on your walking shoes to enjoy some of the most beautiful scenery and tracks Mother Nature can provide, AND, catch one or two for dinner!
