The Gunyah

The Gunyah (Aboriginal for meeting place)
is the heart of the camp.

NOTE: Due to the Covid-19 restrictions the Gunyah restaurant is currently operating with very limited capacity. Resident guests are included for breakfast and dinner, and where possible a small number of outside guests. Please call 4441 7299 if you would like to be waitlisted for a table and we will confirm 24 hours prior.

Our kitchen and bar are open from 2pm daily when the camp is open. Enjoy a cocktail, regional wine or local beer with some delicious light snacks on our sundowner deck, the perfect place to enjoy the peaceful bush ambience. We do recommend calling ahead to check we have a table available outside and the campfire is roaring! 

The Gunyah is our restaurant, reception, bar and communal lounge area and welcomes both in-house and non-resident guests, also being able to cater to those with access needs.

We are open 7 days September - May, with reduced hours when the weather turns cold and the occasional private function that might close the camp to outside guests.

Bookings are essential and we regularly book out so be sure to call ahead on 02-4441 7299 to ensure we are open and have a table!

We also ask that you advise of any dietary requirements or particular access needs at the time of booking.

Visitors are welcome to enjoy drinks and bar snacks on the Sundowner Deck from 2pm- 6pm, again we ask just to call ahead so we can be sure to have a nice spot for you on the verandah.

We follow the seasons and sometimes things need a last minute tweak, so please note the menus below are subject to change.

  • Set menu & paella night | $70 per person
  • Children welcome | $30 per person
  • Breakfast (inc. continental buffet, cooked breakfast and 1 coffee) | $35 per person

Please be advised that as of December 2019 The Gunyah Restaurant and Paperbark Camp no longer accept cash (unless by prior arrangement). We happily accept Visa, Mastercard and American Express.

Thank you for a wonderful, relaxing and mouth watering stay. The food was exquisite, the tent divine. We loved the birds, the kangaroos and the penguins. All the best.

About The Gunyah

Designed by Sydney architects Nettleton Tribe, The Gunyah is a unique space, built high off the ground to enjoy the sea breeze and a wonderful position amongst tree tops.

In the warmer months, the sliding doors open up for outdoor dining on the verandah, providing a bushy backdrop to candlelit meals and to observe the goings on of our resident possums, sugar gliders and birdlife.

In winter, an open fire with cosy lounges is the perfect place to curl up after dinner with a nightcap, perhaps swap a few traveling tales with other guests, or enjoy a game of cards.

The Gunyah is our dining room, reception and communal lounge and is also where you go for free Wi-Fi and to charge phones.

Guests are welcome to help themselves to tea or coffee during the day (or for some, the middle of the night!) or order an espresso style coffee.

Feeling a bit peckish? A delicious bar menu is available from 2pm each day and the Sundowner deck is the perfect place to meet for a late afternoon drink and watch the changing light of the bush as the sun disappears for the evening.

The Gunyah also makes for a beautifully romantic wedding venue and inspirational space for small meetings and corporate retreats.

The Gunyah welcomes a limited number of non-resident guests for breakfast and dinner.  Bookings are essential – please call 02-4441 7299 to make a reservation. The Gunyah is fully licensed and does not allow BYO.
