The Gunyah Restaurant is named after the Aboriginal word “Gunyah” which means “meeting place, or place of shelter” and sits at the heart of Paperbark Camp.
The Gunyah is nestled amongst the tree tops at Paperbark Camp and is the ideal location for a romantic dinner, people looking to spoiling themselves or a special place to celebrate any occasion.
In the warmer months, the sliding doors open up for outdoor dining on the verandah, providing a bushy backdrop to candlelit meals and to observe the goings on of the resident possums, sugargliders and colourful birdlife. In winter, an open fire with cosy lounges is the perfect place to curl up after dinner with a nightcap, perhaps swap a few travelling tales with other guests, or enjoy a game of cards.
The Gunyah is the dining room, reception and communal lounge for Paperbark Camp and is also where you can find free Wi-Fi. Guests of Paperbark Camp can help themselves to tea or coffee during the day (or for some, the middle of the night!). It also makes for a beautifully romantic wedding venue and inspirational space for small meetings and corporate retreats.
The Gunyah restaurant is open to non-resident guests and bookings are a must for both resident and non-resident guests. During peak periods and weekends they are regularly booked out.
Children are welcome to dine at the Gunyah, however Paperbark ask that they are well supervised due to the height of the building and proximity of water, as well as to ensure the resident guests are able to enjoy the quiet ambience.
The Sundowner deck is the perfect place to meet for a late afternoon drink, enjoy some tasty bar snacks and watch the changing light of the bush. Non-resident guests are also welcome to enjoy a drink whilst watching the sunset.
Lastly…the Gunyah is closed annually for a couple of months in July and August.
