A wonderful ‘Night Under Stars’ experience, Tandara affords guests a tranquil location to spoil someone special. Harmoniously integrated into the Australian bush, Tandara was built to offer something very different to what a traditional camping experience might entail. It reflects a practical approach to integrating sustainability principles into tourism development on land within a Reserve or National Park. The result is a luxury accommodation facility with incorporated Australia-first and award winning sustainability initiatives.
Positioned on the edge of a sandstone shelf with uninterrupted views across the Lane Cove Valley, Tandara meaning ‘here we camp’ in traditional Gadigal language, offers sustainable luxury amidst 700 hectares of National Park
Tandara is unique, there is only one! A spacious self-contained canvas tent within its own private sanctuary, Tandara is superbly decorated with the impeccably finishes one would expect of a five star hotel. We believe Tandara is the ultimate in secluded getaways. Winner of the 2011 NSW Tourism, New Tourism Product award, this romantic new tourism development offers couples from the local area, regional NSW, interstate and overseas a true ‘under the stars’ experience.

Things to see and do
Mountain bikes and helmets are provided and a personalised wildlife tour by the Tandara concierge is a fantastic opportunity for guests to learn more about the unique variety of animals who make Tandara some; kookaburras, lorikeets, water dragons, tawny frogmouths, ringtail and brushtail possums, powerful owls, sugar gliders and the endangered bandicoots, who nest underneath Tandara’s decking. There are a vast array of bushwalks within the Lane Cove National Park and a visit to the river and the fish ladder near the weir which provides the opportunity for migratory fish to swim upstream, is always a treat. Kayaks, canoes and pedal boats can be hired from the Lane Cove Boatshed and are an excellent option for our more energetic guests.
Greenhouse gases cause climate change, and the main greenhouse gas is carbon dioxide, also called CO2. Our everyday activities such as driving or using electricity generate these greenhouse gases. Australia has one of the highest per capita greenhouse gas production rates in the world.
