Foothills of Barrington Tops

Welcome To Riverwood Downs

Riverwood Downs is a magnificent, multi award winning 750 acre property just 2.5 hours north of Sydney on the banks of a mountain river in the foothills of Barrington Tops "World Heritage Wilderness".  It is located in a  beautiful rural area known as the Monkerai Valley between the towns of Stroud and Gloucester.

Hidden in a valley on a beautiful mountain river where the platypus play.

Enjoy the 750 acres and 5km of mountain river frontage. Explore the property's shady walking trails, tall mountains and cool fresh mountain pools.  Experience this peaceful setting, with fresh air, bright stars, abundant wildlife, crackling log fires, friendly staff and relaxed country hospitality.

It was our first stay in the new Homestead and it did not disappoint as this is a high quality residence with loads of indoor and outdoor entertaining spaces. All you could ask for, for a great weekend with good friends. Next time we will bring our extended family and the dogs.

Monkerai location
What a beautiful part of the earth and Riverwood Downs made it even better. Spectacularly presented grounds and amenities and the accommodation suits all budgets and styles. Friendly staff, right on the Karuah river and there's plenty to do on site. Loved it and can't wait to go back.

Sally was our event coordinator and exceeded all expectations; she made the day run smoothly and stress-free. I don’t know where to start with our thanks, as the wonderful staff and location completely blew us away. The food was incredible, and our guests had many positive things to say about their meals. Riverwood Downs is where all your loved ones and friends can unite for the entire weekend. A dream wedding location!
