Turon Gates 2 mins read

February 2024: Leading NSW Eco-retreat, Turon Gates, has added a 250 sqm luxury lodge to its 6000-acre Blue Mountains accommodation.

“Sunvale” is perfectly suited for a stunning, hedonistic experience for up to eight guests who love to cook, relax and play together in a warm, ambient setting highlighted with exquisite timbers and rich leather furnishings. This is a unique stay experience in a very private natural setting.

“Sunvale” has ample space and multiple living areas for the whole crew to chill and unwind with both indoor and outdoor entertaining areas. Inside, you will find high ceilings, chandeliers, stunning art and a wide, transparent, crackling fireplace backed by panoramic views.  Four large bedrooms and two supersized bathrooms add to the feeling of space and grandeur. The full-sized kitchen is an entertainer’s delight complete with a dishwasher, multiple refrigerators, a large gas range, oven, espresso machine and everything you need to make gourmet meals.

Step onto the 100 sqm balcony, drag your eyes away from the view for a minute and you'll discover a timber-panelled hot tub, a gas BBQ, dining table and sun lounges to make the most of those amazing mountain and valley sunset views. After dinner, relax in a camp chair, warming around a firepit in the cool mountain air and gaze at the never-ending stars.

While the lodge does offer a 65” TV, Bluetooth speaker systems and Wi-Fi, the focus is the natural beauty of Turon Gates. To this end, Sunvale has floor-to-ceiling glass bi-fold doors to take full advantage of the scenic views offering a complete indoor/outdoor living environment.

When it’s time to retire, sink into the plush, king-sized, four-poster beds in airconditioned/heated comfort and wake to breathtaking views from every room. Even the bathtub for two with a concertina glass wall provides another way to enjoy nature in luxury.

Relish a guilt-free escape knowing your stay has a minimal environmental footprint. ‘Sunvale’ is built with recycled timber, is completely off-grid and almost entirely solar-powered, with gas only used for the four-burner stovetop.

Guests are welcome to enjoy the activities at Turon Gates including guided horse rides, varied hiking trails, canoeing, swimming and trout fishing in crystal clear Turon River waters or to go for a scenic drive and explore the local towns and wineries.

Michael Lunoe of Turon Gates says, “It has been our dream to offer a truly elegant bush lodge. 
We believe Sunvale offers something truly exceptional and unusual. To have this much space and this much privacy is really unique”

“For fifty years Turon Gates has offered an authentic bush holiday, just three hours from Sydney. Our guests love to get outdoors without leaving their comfort zone, whether they choose to spend time swimming in the clear stream or hiking the mountains, the property is big enough to make you feel you have the place all to yourself.”

‘Sunvale’ is complemented by the existing offerings of glamping, camping and log cabins Turon Gates is already well known for.

Sunvale rates: From $1175 per night.
