Where you’ll be

Bar Point, New South Wales, Australia

You will be staying on the river foreshore community of Bar Point.
Your neighbours are close by, so even though Allawah is visually private, sound travels.
We ask you respect the quiet nature of this community


Bar Point is one of several boat access only communities in the area , that includes Milsons Passage, Sunny Corner, Coba Point & Marra Marra.
There are no shops & no roads to any of these places.
The rest of the river foreshore in the area is pristine National Park.

Brooklyn, Mooney Mooney, Spencer & Berowra Waters are the nearest road/river junctions
