A truly unique space. Not your typical home, and all the better for it. Having the huge doorway to the outdoors open in the evening and enjoying the sounds of the river and nature while enjoying a glass of wine was a special treat.

We had excellent communication with our host. Though Kirsty was away we were looked after with great care by Pauline. She showed us where everything was and how to operate lights and the wonderful opening wall! The accommodation is so beautiful, at one with nature. It was perf…

Sharing a home with Kirsty was wonderful. Despite the tranquil environment she and her partner have been nurturing for the best parts of the last couple decades, there was never a dull moment. Kirsty’s local tips were never short of exciting and her curious nature always had a qu…

This is my third time at the River Room and it is always the best. George and Kirsty are welcoming and helpful, sharing a bounty of citrus from their garden and this stunning space.

You've no idea how happy we are to hear you love spending time in this place. Into the future it would indeed be good to keep sharing the wisdom of this building with young people seeking different ways to think about living spaces. When we came here in the 1980s it was such an oddity but we too, fell in love with it. So it's good to think that more people want to think outside the square when planning their homes. We shall definitely keep brainstorming the potential to bring architectural and design minds here to reflect on innovative Australian architecture and the blessing of natural assets in our landscapes. let's stay in touch.

What a magical place. We felt very lucky to be on beautiful Gumbaynggirr land, with its incredible rainforests, mountains, and waters. The River Room sits with great care and respect in its landscape, and invites you to listen, to be still, and to become slowly attuned to its rhy…

Really appreciate your feedback Rajni as it is hard to be an absent host! So great to know Melissa & Tahnee ensured you had excellent support and what you needed to ensure you enjoyed it all and especially impressed you SWAM in winter - hopefully on a sunny day! Hot water bottles a great idea, thanks. Am home there myself next weekend! Ciao Kirsty
