Blue Mountains Tourist : Summer 2009 - 10
Take in fresh mountain air and escape the every day hustle and bustle at Jemby- Rinjah Eco Lodge, nestled amongst private native bushland at Blackheath. "As the weather starts to heat up in the city, why not head up to the mountains to enjoy cooler temperatures and an array of outdoor activities," suggests lodge manager Christine Le Marseny. "There are so many spectacular bushwalks and beautiful lookouts just minutes from Jemby-Rinjah's doorstep. "We have 10 fully self-contained cabins which are perfect for families looking for a Summer holiday retreat." Jemby Rinjah's fully licensed restaurant is open to in-house guests and those just seeking a delicious lunch or dinner. While there, you can view some of the beautiful indigenous artworks on display and later take a stroll to nearby Evans Lookout, where you can see some of the most picturesque scenery in the Blue Mountains. Head chef Malcolm McPherson encourages locals to consider Jemby for their next group function. Jemby-Rinjah also caters for small to medium conference groups, offering modern conference facilities amid a natural bush setting. The lodge was one of the first examples of large scale sustainable tourism in Australia and holds Advanced Ecotourism Accreditation under the National Ecotourism Accreditation Program. Jemby-Rinjah's mission statement is to 'tread softly, live lightly'; to ensure sustainability of the natural environment and promote 'green' living. The original owners developed the conceptual design of Jemby-Rinjah from their own love of the outdoors and National Parks. The complex was built on an existing degraded site within a property 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 were constructed on the pole platform or pole frame principle using treated, plantation pine product as the structural base.
