About us

Wangrah Wilderness Lodge is located in the rugged mountains and deep valleys of the New England Highlands, New South Wales, Australia making it the ideal location for a family looking to reconnect or couples searching for a romantic getaway;

A Place to Relax and Unwind….

Imagine your next wilderness escape, yourself and your family frolicking in the tranquil waters of the Mole River or taking riverside strolls during the day and in the evenings, you will retreat to your cosy cottage to relax around the fire or gaze up at the clear starry night sky.

With over 20 km’s of spectacular river frontage to the Mole River, you can spend your days reading, swimming, kayaking, playing tennis or fishing for giant Murray Cod and Yellow belly. 

Go bushwalking along natural trails and discover abundant Australian wildlife, including kangaroos, wallabies, platypus, echidna, eagles and a plethora of bird life.  Feast your eyes on our resident Chital Deer Herd, with Majestic stags in full antler and an abundance of mothers and their fawns; a sight to behold for the young and old.

Your hosts Sharon and Carl Piggott have welcomed guests to the property for the past 12 years and love to share their knowledge of the land and surrounding areas, not to mention having a good old chat along the way!

Close to Tenterfield and just 42 km’s south of the Queensland border, your idyllic mountain retreat accommodation is an easy 4-hour drive from Brisbane or 3 hours from Byron Bay.  

Within short driving distances of the Granite Belt Wineries, Bald Rock, Boonoo Boonoo and Girraween National Parks, Wangrah Wilderness Lodge is the perfect place to choose as your base for touring the New England.
