Unleash your creativity at this retreat on NSW South Coast

An art museum embedded in the landscape. A wildlife sanctuary set on 1000 hectares. A gift to the Australian people. A place to make your own. An overnight stay at Bundanon is a chance to slow down, connect with nature and enjoy unique cultural experiences.

Explore the latest exhibitions in the Art Museum, visit the historic Homestead site, and experience Arthur Boyd’s Studio. Visitors can also explore walking tracks and discover the unique Shoalhaven landscape that has inspired artists for many generations.

A reimagined art destination on the South Coast of NSW

Last year Bundanon celebrated the opening of a new Art Museum and Bridge for Creative Learning. Both buildings were designed by gold-medallist Kerstin Thompson and awarded the prestigious Sir Zelman Cowen Award for Public Architecture and a National Award for Sustainable Architecture at the 2022 National Architecture Awards, and the Sulman Medal for Public Architecture at the 2022 NSW Architecture Awards.

For several weekends each year, guests can stay in the Bridge for multi-day curated experiences. These all-inclusive overnight packages include eco-friendly accommodation and onsite dining, inspiring exhibition tours, guided ecology walks, artmaking workshops, and riverside yoga sessions at sunrise.

Sustainability and seasonality

The architectural design of the Bridge is driven by an ethos of sustainability and connection with the surrounding environment. Each room is situated within the 160-metre-long structure, which draws inspiration from Australia’s rural trestle flood bridges and sensitively spans the natural gully below.

Seasonal dining experiences at Bundanon are crafted by Executive Chef Douglas Innes-Will. Each menu incorporates quality produce sourced from the surrounding Shoalhaven region. Innes-Will brings his local eye to each meal, sourcing sustainable produce for signature dishes that will heighten your senses and enhance your overall experience of Bundanon.

“Bundanon is an exceptional experience. The Shoalhaven River and the surrounding bushland are an area of great natural beauty. Visitors can experience an intimate encounter with the art of Arthur Boyd, one of Australia’s greatest artists. The architecture is multi-award-winning and internationally acclaimed. Our evening meal was fine dining at its best.” – Bundanon Guest, 2023.
