An award-winning eco-resort on 40 acres of riverfront land is for sale two hours’ drive from Canberra and offers the opportunity to escape to a home in a rustic bush setting and run your own business.

‘The Escape’ luxury camping retreat at Shallow Crossing is on the market for $1,695,000 and includes a three-bedroom manager’s residence, four ‘glamping’ tents which are more like cabins and a luxury studio.

Located at 2408 The River Road, Mogood, the property offers spectacular views over the Clyde River and is fully sustainable, with NBN satellite internet, a solar energy system, water tanks and a wastewater treatment system.

Raine & Horne Mollymook/Milton Director Ben Pryde said the ‘The Escape’ offers people an opportunity to own a piece of iconic Australian bush, with plenty of wildlife, lush forests and pristine river frontage.

“‘The Escape’ offers a unique work/lifestyle balance for operators that are passionate about working in the tourism and hospitality industry and providing award-winning luxury accommodation,” Mr Pryde said.

“This is definitely a lifestyle property, whereby a family, couple or group of friends could escape the rat race and live and work in a unique environment.

“There’s a growing demand for eco-tourism on the south coast and the property is a regular escape for Canberrians. In fact, one of the owners works part-time in Canberra and commutes to the city for a few days a week.”

‘The Escape’ is for sale.

Mr Pryde said that when guests come to stay at the luxury camping retreat, they want to down their technology and really get back to nature.

“The current owners enjoy living off the grid on the 40-acre property which is fully sustainable and surrounded by State Forests and National Parks,” he said.

Mr Pryde said the property is a 45-minute drive from Milton and Batemans Bay on a dirt road through beautiful bush and farmland.

“When coming from Milton or Termeil, you drive across the river at Shallow Crossing and it’s just spectacular,” he said.

“The main residence and restaurant is perched high above the river with amazing views and each of the luxury tents, which are more like cabins, has a great view up the river.

“As well as offering superb accommodation, the venue often plays host to artist, yoga and business retreats, weddings and even intimate private music performances.

“While the business is already proving successful, there’s so much potential for expansion if somebody wanted to up the ante.”
