I cannot rate my stay at Amaroo Escape highly enough. From the warm and friendly greeting at the front gate from Jim and Susan upon arrival, to the property itself. The cows, the river, the hammocks, the outdoor fireplace and the UTV's. The accommodation is catered for down to the finest details and Jim and Susan have the most wonderful gift of hospitality! It's the best getaway I've had in years.
Response from the owner: WOW!! Thank you so much Janelle for your heart felt review, it means the world to us. We are so thrilled you had an amazing experience, and we can't wait to welcome you back for a swim in the river. Kindest regards, Susan and Jim

Absolutely perfect in every single way, the only downfall was that we had to leave😂!We’d love to come back in the warmer months to explore those fabulous swimming spots further! We’ll see you again very soon 😊
Response from the owner: Thank you Jo! It was our absolute pleasure to have you stay and experience our little piece of paradise. The river and secluded swimming holes are an absolute hit with guests in the warmer months. Looking forward to seeing you both again then!

Amaroo left us speechless and in tears when we left.I didn’t want to go.We spent 4 heavenly days in COOINDA and cannot rave highly enough about the standard of this glamping tent,the cleanliness,the layout,the attention to detail,the generosity of the breakfast supplies plus so much more.The bed was insanely comfortable and sleeping to the sound of the flowing river was serene.The whole property was immaculately maintained by INCREDIBLE hosts Jim and Sue.The UTV car was sooo much fun for exploring the whole property.We saw so much wildlife and adored the cows.The stars at night were insanely beautiful.Thankyou Jim and Sue so much for spoiling us and allowing us to make amazing memories….100% coming back .That was a 10 star stay
Response from the owner: We didn't want you to leave! It was our absolute pleasure to meet you and to have you stay. You have an amazing outlook on life and your positivity and determination to live it to the fullest is inspiring. To read such an outstanding review from a fellow host and to hear just how much happiness your stay brought to you had me in tears. We can't wait to welcome you both back and to tick your holiday property off our bucket list. Take care and we can't wait to catch up again...soon! xx

Wow! It doesn’t get better than Amaroo Escape. We had the time of our life relaxing, enjoying nature and the gorgeous glamping that Jim and Susan have beautifully presented. They are the greatest and most hospitable hosts we have ever had. Greeting us at the gate as we arrived and wishing us well on the way out. 4 nights went too fast and we felt so relaxed and we will be back as soon as possible. Thanks so much Susan and Jim. From Lyn and Spyro. Xxx
Response from the owner: What a wonderful review thank you Lyn. Coming from someone who has also spent a lot of time in the accommodation industry this is a very big compliment which we are humbled to receive. Thank you! It was so lovely to meet you and to chat to you both during your stay. We can't wait to welcome you both back for another stay and a chat! Kindest regards, Susan and Jim xx

Beautiful place for us to spend our honeymoon at and being able to take off in a atv to ur own secluded locations just took this place to the next level. The rooms exceed anyone's expectations with everything, with the river flowing right past your window just makes it blissful. Can't wait for our next visit there.
Response from the owner: What wonderful feedback thank you Brad! We feel so humbled that you chose to stay at Amaroo Escape for such a special occasion.

Our recent weekend away was exceptional and exceed our expectations in every way. Jim & Susan provided a warm, friendly welcome and couldn’t be more helpful. The rooms are 5 star and we wish we could take the bed with us, it’s so amazing. The view and tranquillity make it hard to want to leave, but once you do venture out in the provided ATVs, it didn’t disappoint. We went swimming, met some local cows and really soaked up the mountain view. We were even lucky enough to see a platypus. We cannot wait to stay here again and make even more memories.
Response from the owner: Our guests kept saying how comfy the mattress was so we ended up buying one for ourselves! How exciting that you got to watch the platypus literally out the front of your tent. We can't wait to welcome you both back. Wish Brady a very Happy Birthday from us for tomorrow. Kindest regards Susan and Jim

WOW!! WOW! WOW!What an escape from the daily grind. Amaroo was the perfect destination to completely disconnect from our busy lives.Offering amazing scenery, comfy beds and luxurious glamping. Ticked all the boxes for us to rejuvenate and reconnect.We stayed for three nights and didn’t want to leave. Sue and Jim are so great, easy to chat to and you can tell how passionate they are about their little slice of paradise.They have thought of absolutely everything, the stay also included the use of the ATV’s which was just so much fun to venture out and explore.The bath is just divine and absolutely loved the added extra compliments such as chocolate and marshmallows..and champagne to celebrate a break. Not to mention the incredible wild life such as platypus and water dragons.My favourite thing to do was float down the river and just fully immersed in nature without having to share the space with a lot of people.So private and tranquil.We also indulged on catering provided by Gloucester Country Catering, so fresh and delicious, easy and convenient. Definitely a must if you want to fully relax with having to prepare foods.Thank you to Sue & Jim for an unforgettable experience. We had an absolute blast and cannot wait to come back.Aimee & Brett 🌻
Response from the owner: Thank you so much Aimee and Brett for taking the time to leave such an amazing and comprehensive review. It was great to chat and to see you and your friends enjoying your time at Amaroo Escape! Floating down the river in the tubes is so much fun and so relaxing too!

What a wonderful place to celebrate our 11th wedding anniversary. The moment we entered the gate and were greeted with jims welcoming nature we felt relaxed. All the little touches were noticed and truly appreciated, the heater on the deck was a marvellous touch and allowd us to sit and watch the moonlight dance on the river. An honourable mention for the bed that felt like I was sleeping on a cloud, I tru6had the best sleep of my life. Jim and Susan have spared no expense or effort to make your stay here a memorable and 5 star experience.
Response from the owner: Hi Trish and thank you so much for your lovely review! We are so glad you enjoyed your anniversary getaway and to hear you enjoyed the best sleep of your life on our super comfy mattress was amazing!

What a great oasis.Every detail was thought about and executed to a 5-star level.This place offers a disconnet from the digital world.The opportunity to do little or a lot is definitely a high point of the experience offered.Even the chance to spot the elusive platypus brought a childish glee of excitement.The pride Jim and Susan have for their property and facilities is easily seen.A return to experience amaroo escape is 100% on the cards.
Response from the owner: Wow, we are so glad you thought so highly of your experience at Amaroo Escape and seeing the Platypus in their natural habitat out the front of your tent is so exciting!

Posting on behalf of my husband :)My wife and I had our babymoon here and loved every minute of our stay over Easter. Jim and Susan are amazing and have set up Amaroo perfect, u cannot fault the place one bit and they have thought of absolutely everything to make your stay more relaxing and enjoyable. The UTV carts are perfect for getting around the property to the many water holes, picnic spots, to see the whole farm and all the cows. The room, bathroom and kitchen are perfect with a very comfortable bed. The balcony was amazing to sit on and have a couple cold ones and look out at the view over the river. We will definitely be coming back again. 12 out of 10 for this stay and definitely recommend anyone who wants to stay there.Andrew and Jayne Farrell.
Response from the owner: Thank you so much for taking the time to share your amazing babymoon and for recommending Amaroo Escape so highly to others! We wish you both all the very best for the arrival of your new baby! So exciting! We can't wait to welcome you back soon x

Thank you Jim and Susan for sharing your piece of paradise. We came to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary and we are so glad we did.From the moment we arrived we knew this was something quite special. The accommodation was exceptional with nothing to fault. That bed wow, and the tranquility of hearing the water rush over the rocks. You both have created heaven plus a whole lot more.We will certainly come back again.Karen & Peter
Response from the owner: Thank you so much Karen. It was so great to have you stay and experience everything we love about our piece of paradise. There's nothing better than the sound of mother nature to drift off to sleep to. The mattress is certainly one of the most asked questions we get. We had such wonderful feedback from our guests about it that we decided to buy one for ourselves and we love it!

Absolutely LOVED this place! Jim & Susan have created a real haven here with beautifully appointed cabins that are cozy and private taking glamping to a whole new level! I hope it survives these awful floods as it is a very special place. Love all the happy dairy cows they saved from the knackery too, bless! A real country escape! 🙂
Response from the owner: Thank you so much for sharing your great experience at Amaroo Escape! Yes, were lucky enough not to be affected by the floods. The river was up but the tents were high and dry. We now have 35 rescue cows including 5 calves that are absolutely loving their forever home on the farm. 🙂

We spent two nights at Amaroo Escape for our 50th anniversary. It is a fantastic place to stay. The hosts have gone above and beyond expectations with the accommodation.

Could recommend spending time here enough ❤️

We had an amazing time at Amaroo for our 3 night stay. Everything from the greeting when we arrived to the goodbye when we left. Nothing was left out. If you didn't like to full high pillow to sleep with, there was a low small pillow as well. The inclusions were carefully thought out, it was truly a home away from home. I would definitely recommend this retreat to everybody I know, and will be back the next chance we get.
Response from the owner: Thank you so much Kim. We have tried to think of absolutely everything you need to make your stay great! We truly appreciate your wonderful feedback and can't wait to welcome you back 🙂
