Historic Colonial Accommodation

Cascades Colonial Accommodation, has been transformed from a convict goal housing up to 400 convicts into an amazing accommodation experience. Stay in authentic convict built cottages constructed of brick and sandstone, complimented by colonial antiques and furniture skillfully handcrafted from selected timbers off the property. These cottages are all self contained and fitted with modern amenities.
Now run by fifth generation owners Marcus Clark and Maria Stupka, guests are invited to visit the private family museum and to explore convict remains, including a cellblock with an intact solitary confinement and the original mess hall. Enjoy two stunning short walks on the property, one that follows the waterfront to the site of a convict jetty and another that goes into the rainforest to the ruins of a convict mill and quarry site.
