Highs & Lows

  • The location, the perfect pit stop. Everything you need for a night’s stay is right here.

  • The front bar – a classic Australia pub with some great design details, including floor tiling with ‘The Sir George’ underfoot, moody low lighting, and local wine and beer served from the bar. Order a parma and chips and settle in. This place is a good time.

  • The stables – traditional old horse stables have been converted into beautiful sandstone rooms with pitched high ceilings. They’ve retained the old structure with a luxe interior makeover to make them very comfortable.

  • The retail space inside selling clothing, homewares, wine and nice pantry items or car snacks for the road.

  • There could be a few more environmental considerations here. No single-use plastic, no takeaway cups etc.
