History of the Retreat
Tumbling Waters Retreat has a long and colorful history, Henry Halloran who originally owned the property back in the 1930’s also owned most of the surrounding land in Stanwell Tops, Otford and Stanwell Park. The Mineral Pool was built by Henry to attract visitors to the local area so he could eventually subdivide and sell his land. He kept men working throughout the great depression by building stonewalls, love seats and castle like monuments, found around the Stanwell Tops area, ultimately making the area an attractive place to live. There was an old Kiosk on site, and the Retreat was a popular camping ground once known as the Pleasure Park.
Tumbling Waters Retreat has been designed for couples, a place to come and relax, take time out, rekindle a romance, indulge in fine cuisine and enjoy the surrounding nature. It has also been designed for boutique weddings……..we host the most beautiful weddings.
The Retreat provides a lot of work for the local community; from massage therapists, stone mason, plumbers, electricians, florists, wait staff, kitchen hands, cleaners, pool service, gardeners, receptionists, Marriage celebrants, photographers, beauty therapist, hair dressers, entertainers, … it’s amazing how many local people are now associated and earn an income from the Retreat. We also provide lots of jobs for the local (sometimes previous objectors) teenagers introducing them to gardening, waiting staff and cooking – some have continued these career paths and are now self-employed and very successful.
We're an hour from Sydney’s CBD, surrounded by the Royal National Park Tumbling Waters Retreat is scenically breathtaking.
Let yourself be completely swept away in the romance of this idyllic setting.
From the moment you arrive, the tension of modern life will dissolve and fall away. Tumbling Waters is a boutique retreat designed for couples. You will never want to leave.
