Tucked away in Bilpin in the Blue Mountains, this treehouse is a solid upgrade on that backyard shanty your dad built you. With huge, open windows, and a deck with expansive views out over Bowen’s Creek Gorge, Wollemi Cabins’ Treehouse is a little taste of luxury in the treetops. Designed to fit one couple, the treehouse has a kitchenette, one queen bed, a fireplace and a glass-roofed spa which looks out onto the stars above. You can also book a range of experiences to make your treehouse experience a truly indulgent one. Sink into a mud bath, or if you’re feeling adventurous, book in for an ethereal glow worm tour at twilight, or scale the mountain biking trails nearby. Book your stay online.
