Where do I start!? With the word DIVINE! The five course dinners are exceptional and worth far more than the price tag. We have visited twice for Mother's Day lunch - yum!

The place was excellent on this our second visit as a large group. We took the big homestead as well as Humpy Bong and a 2 bedroom unit by the pool. Jo was an absolute delight to deal with again. She is professional, focussed, caring and looks after every detail at the Carriageway as if it were her own property....

We have stayed a number of times at the Carriageway not in the railway carriages in the spa accommodation. The spas are genuine 2 person spas and the suites are quite roomy with facilities for cooking however we only utilised this for breakfast. It was nice to come back from a trip out and have a lovely swim in the...

My initial telephone query regarding Carriageway, was my first contact with Jo. What a pleasant, professional lady. We stayed one night and from beginning to end, it went way beyond our expectations. Jo, in person, was just as pleasant & helpful. Our accommodation was clean, well presented and warm. Our 6 course dinner in the Red Rattler restaurant, did not...

We booked one night at Carriageway as we were attending a family reunion in Dungog. The Children loved sleeping in an old train, despite it being very cold the weekend we visited the train was lovely and warm. We especially like the outside fire at the end of each carriage as we could roast marshmallows.

We stayed for one night but will be back again. The estate is peaceful and panoramic and looked better than any places to stay in Dungog, yet only a few minutes drive out of the town centre. The Carriages are really roomy and comfortable with ample heating even on the cold August night we stayed. Jo and family are easy...

We stayed for one night to surprise Master 4 as he is train mad. Marmalade the Cat promptly welcomed us and then made himself at home in our "Flyer" carriage.

“The homestead is well worth the price! You get a bush tennis court and pool! Plus a pool table, the heat was hard to find, it's controlled by something in the kitchen cupboard!”
