jemby rinjah eco-lodge


property description:  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 come to feed 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 our restaurant which serves delicious mountain cuisine or simply relax on one of the many verandas around the lodge and soak in the ambience.

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

Jemby Rinjah Lodge has been creating unique experiences for our guests for over 17 years. We look forward to creating one for you. For booking enquiries and reservations please click



Jemby Rinjah Lodge was designed to coexist with and take advantage of the natural environment and has won several major awards both for the innovative design and its successful operation as a tourism business, including NSW Tourism Awards for environmental tourism and tourist development projects and the Banksia Environmental Foundation Award for the Built Environment.

Jemby Rinjah Lodge was built on an existing degraded sites within the block which had been cleared for logging to supply a 'dolly peg' factory in nearby Blackheath township. Cabin sites were specifically selected to utilise these cleared sites and existing fire trails were also used for access and to bring in materials. All remaining trees and native vegetation were retained and since completion of the Lodge there has been significant regeneration.

All buildings are constructed on the 'Pole platform' or 'Pole frame' principle using treated, plantation pine product as the structural base. 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 cabins are self contained with a lounge/dining area and one or two bedrooms. Every cabin features a slow combustion wood heater in the lounge area and your comfort is assured with luxurious feather doonas on each bed. Linen and towels are provided. Each cabin is very private and surrounded by native bushland. Guests can choose to either cater for themselves or join us in the restaurant for their meals.

For a special occasion we have a romantic retreat cabin which is a spacious one bedroom cabin with a rainwater filled Japanese hot tub, slow combustion wood stove, television, video and stereo.

Jemby Rinjah offers three Eco-Lodges as accommodation for groups of up to 16 people in each lodge (a minimum of eight per group are required to book). Each features four bedrooms with comfortable beds and feather doonas. Linen and towels are included in the tariff. There are two bathrooms, a large lounge area, bar fridge, tea and coffee facilities, central gas heating with individually warmed rooms and north facing deck area overlooking the natural Blue Mountains bush scape, alive with native birdlife.

The Eco-Lodges are accessed by wooden walkways placed above the ground to protect the flora and fauna for the future. As well, low energy heating and lighting and total onsite waste management are utilised throughout the complex.

Verandahs and raised plank walkways are used for increased observation and minimal impact on flora and fauna. Access for the disabled is provided for in the barrier free design. All stages of the facility are connected by paths and ramps for wheelchair accessibility.

The buildings are 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 provides excellent thermal properties and acoustic insulation. Corrugated colour bonded roofing was used and roof trusses were made on site to utilise small timber sections and galvanised connectors.

Boardwalks house all essential services beneath them to minimise soil disturbance and all original building materials were carried in using the boardwalks. All waste is recycled on site..

location:  Jemby Rinjah is ideally situated adjacent to the Blue Mountains National Park, 2 hours West of Sydney's CBD.

The drive is an easy and interesting one. Simply head west on Sydney's M4 Motorway and continue driving for two hours. At the base of the Blue Mountains the motorway becomes the Great Western Highway.

On your drive up the Mountains you will pass through many historic townships and villages. If you stop at the tourist information office on the highway at Glenbrook, shortly after you reach the Blue Mountains, you will be able to get a map and information on some of the more interesting stops.

Jemby Rinjah Lodge is located at the end of Evans Lookout Road, a few minutes drive prior to the Blackheath township and shortly after passing through Medlow Bath. Simply turn right off the highway
