Jemby-Rinjah Eco Lodge

Experience the spectacular Blue Mountains from the comfort and tranquillity of the award winning Jemby Rinjah Eco Lodge. A unique Australian ecotourism escape in the heart of the Blue Mountains.

Here you can treat yourself to some time away from the daily grind and peak hour bottlenecks by relaxing at the mountain retreat, an enjoyable two hour drive from Sydney.

On arrival you will be struck by the peace and quiet, with the silence broken only by the sound of birdsong. Every morning many parrots will come to feed from your hand and lizards, possums, owls and nocturnal animals can be seen on the property.

Accommodation is in ecofriendly timber cabins and lodges, where the feather doonas and slow combustion wood fires are the last word in comfort.

Enjoy a meal at the restaurant which serves delicious mountain cuisine or simply relax on one of the many verandas around the main lodge, or sit on the porch in front of your cabin and soak in the ambience.

Some of the Blue Mountains most scenic lookouts and bushwalks are just a short stroll away.

Staff Comment - Energy saving includes the design and building materials used by Jemby-Rinjah:

All external cladding is weatherproof, grooved plywood sheeting and all internal cladding is a rustic finish pine plywood, sourced from local plantation suppliers. All structures are a lightweight super insulated timber construction to give quick thermal response for their intermittent use. The buildings are north-oriented for solar benefits and are well insulated using fibreglass and reflective foil to prevent condensation in the cold climate as well as the use of strawboard ceilings in 45 mm sheets which provide excellent thermal properties and acoustic insulation.
