Ben Ricketts Environmental Preserve
Ben Ricketts is an ideal retreat for groups, families and individuals, set within the tall forest of the Illawarra Escarpment. There are three fully equipped cabins available for holiday rental.
Ben Ricketts is within easy reach of Kiama, Carrington Falls, Minamurra Rainforest, Illawarra Fly and Jamberoo Recreation Park.
Be woken up by lyrebirds and spend the day enjoying the rainforest, creeks, glades and open paddocks. Ben Ricketts is home to echidnas, wombats, swamp wallabies, greater gliders and a great variety of birds. Listen to the lyrebirds, bowerbirds, catbirds, whipbirds, kookaburras and sugar gliders.
Children are welcome, with plenty of open space for them to play and lots of nature to discover. There are marked walking trails on the property that start close to the cabins.
Linen is available at an extra charge. Pets are not permitted to stay in the cabins.
