Guests can join one of the hands on classes or demonstrations in the Cooking School; visit the Salus Day Spa; play tennis; unwind by the infinity pool; explore lake paths meandering past mineral springs into the Wombat State Forest, and enjoy the walkable proximity of the charming village itself. Kookaburras fly in for dinner. Corellas, Cockatoos and Gang Gangs are frequent visitors. Many of Australia’s native animals can be encountered along the forest tracks.

“…the largely regional food here is better than ever; the plating smarter and more contemporary, the flavours more focused and vibrant.” The Weekend Australian Hot 50 – Lake House ‘Hottest Classic’.
