Fifteen years ago Eaglereach Wilderness Resort opened with high hopes and three operational lodges near a village only the Hunter locals knew existed. Fast forward to today and you will find a resort, which was twice named winner of National Tourism Awards for the Best, Superior Accommodation in Australia. In addition winner of the Best Superior Accommodation of the Decade award at the New South Wales Tourism awards.
The journey has been highlighted by the growth from 3 to 38 lodges, the opening of Treehops restaurant in 1995. The winning of regional and state tourism awards in 1996 and the competition of Aloota, an integrated conference & function centre in 1999. Opening the Observatory Deck in 2001, the all resort room Jindalee complex in 2002 and the new Reception building in 2005. The Corroboree Meeting Place was opened in 2013.
Winning the fiercely contested Superior Accommodation category in the National Tourism Awards showed that with an extraordinary location, a new generation product which reflects the Australian character, and a core of key staff who are committed to the property, it is possible to break away from the established pack and set new standards without the usual international corporate or chain structure.
To justify this growth, each core market has been given specific attention under the brand name Eaglereach. The corporate market, the short breaks-indulgence market, the early retirees, families, and the adventurers. Each has their own requirements, which must be catered for, without compromising the expectations or the comfort of other guests. This is rare and can only happen when you have a 640acre (259Ha) private property where everyone can enjoy his or her own space. This is demonstrated in the many catering options including our licensed Bistro & Bar, The Observatory Deck, a tree canopy level deck for dining under the stars, a Char-grill pavilion for snacks and picnic baskets, take-aways.
One of most satisfying aspects of the Eaglereach success has been the universal appeal of a "wilderness resort" to both domestic and international visitors alike, in what was previously thought of as a niche market for those adventurers looking for an experience where the standard of accommodation, food and beverage was an after thought. So it is possible to combine a nature based experience with the best superior accommodation in Australia.
Future plans according to Chief Executive Paul Miley who, with his wife Carmen developed Eaglereach will include a Koala interpretive centre and a star-gazing deck. There is always something new happening at Eaglereach.
