Being instantly intrigued by the charming retreat, we had to speak to owners, Jim and Susan Spencer to find out more about this unique concept and the inspiration.
“The vision was to create a haven where guests can unwind and reconnect with nature in a responsible and enjoyable way. It is a truly Australian accommodation experience, where guests sleep in a purpose-built luxury eco-glamping tent where they can enjoy slow mornings and cosy evenings. Where they can get back to nature and a more simplistic world that we've left behind”.
“We aimed to blend luxury with environmental consciousness.”

The property is vastly spread over 450 acres of farm and bushland, running alongside the magical Manning River. Amaroo takes you away to its little slice of heaven so location was key.
“Location was chosen by a couple of factors, the first being the stunning natural beauty of the area. Gloucester is known as the gateway to the World Heritage Listed Barrington Tops National Park in NSW and provided an ideal backdrop for the retreat. The area’s diverse landscape of bushland and farmland, coupled with our location on the banks of the Manning River, offered the perfect setting for a nature-immersive experience.”
The stay is only a short two hour drive from Newcastle and three from Sydney, allowing an easy weekend getaway.
“We considered the accessibility of the location for guests while still providing a sense of seclusion and tranquillity.”
Relaxing hammocks line the property and the Manning River Swimming Hole nearby.
We know nobody is meant to have favourites, but Jim and Susan were happy to share their favourite part of Amaroo is, “the opportunity to share our piece of paradise with our guests and be part of their special moments. It is heartwarming and incredibly rewarding to know that so many guests have chosen Amaroo Escape as the backdrop for such significant and memorable occasions.”
The couple truly have cultivated a space cherished by all those who have come before. When we learned that they named one part of the property “Proposal Hill” after the number of guests who chose to ask the love of their life to marry them there, we knew the pair had created a deeply meaningful place.
“The serene environment, the sounds of wildlife, and the ability to unwind without distractions are absolute highlights.”

At Eadie, we’re all about the soft furnishings and aesthetic of the places we stay so were thrilled to discover each tent at Amaroo features our linen products. Susan shared “the interior styling at Amaroo Escape was carefully curated to create a cosy and inviting atmosphere that complements the natural surroundings. Eadie cushions, throws and bed covers also add a touch of elegance and sophistication, enhancing the overall aesthetic, and providing guests with a sense of indulgence. The soft textures and neutral tones harmonise with the tranquil setting, creating a serene and relaxing environment for guests to unwind.”
“Eadie’s commitment to ethical and sustainable practices resonates with our dedication to environmental consciousness, so our decision to incorporate Eadie also supported shared values of quality, sustainability, and luxury.”
Inside the tent the double sliding doors open right up and you can enjoy indoor dining overlooking the Manning River.
