High in the ranges, some 900 metres above sea level, you can experience the four seasons of the year. Our summers have warm days with cool enjoyable nights and our winters have cool crisp mornings followed by beautiful cool days, ideal for enjoying a glass of our award winning wines. Enjoy the beauty of orchards in bloom during spring and the intoxicating colour of autumn as the foliage changes from green to gold.
Discover our National Parks with waterfalls, rock formations and walking tracks. Explore the art galleries and antique and craft shops or stroll through the local shops.
Enjoy romantic dinners at one of our many superb restaurants, then wander slowly back to Apple Blossom Cottage along the well-lit path by the creek.
