We stayed in one of the family cabins. They are spacious, light and well maintained. The family sized table and cooking facilities were good. The grounds are lovely and there is plenty to do on rainy day. The manager greeted us at reception and answered our questions. There was a good selection of books and dvds. There are plenty of...

We have had a few stays at Federation Gardens with our family and it is always a relaxing time. The grounds are beautiful and the pool always the right temp for a swim. We love it in the winter and have the fire on and in the summer it is a great place for a few days away. A great... More

We stayed in one of the wooden cabins on stilts. It was still quite cold at night so the log burning stove really heated the cabin up and made it very cosy. Although it looked like a rustic cabin - the bathroom with a spa bath looked like something more at home in a luxury hotel and it was really... More

Lots of grounds for the children to run around and a big verandah to lounge on. The heated indoor pool - 27c was enjoyed by us all. Nice cafes a few minutes... More

Amazing location! Beautiful surrounds and a very quiet setting. The room was perfect and having a fireplace with kindling and logs ready to go was a lovely addition, all we needed to do was light it :) Kitchen has everything you need. Found it very easy to unwind and didn't have to go far for bushwalks or shops and restaurants.... More

We stayed 2 nights in one of the possum cottages at the end of August 2013. We had the best time in this big place in the middle of the forest, with windows opening on the nature and the birds waking us up, while the possums came to say good night. It was clean, neat and very comfortable. Lots of... More

We booked 3 nights to stay in the Possum cabin for couples. The room was very nice and clean. I was surprised that the fireplace was already setup and ready-to-go all we needed to do was light the match. A nice and comfy queen size bed sits in front of the fire place to keep you warm on the cool... More
