Our family of 5 recently stayed in one of the Pines apartments at Federation Gardens. It was simple, clean and comfortable: good value at the price. The kids could run off and do their own thing, play tennis, ping pong, hide and seek, or go for a swim in the indoor pool. Wonderful escape to the mountains. We all enjoyed... More

Nothing negative to say about Possums, it's all great. I love that the indoor heated swimming pool is 24/7 access for a night swim. We loved the toasty fireplace, huge spa, great view from the cabin yurt.....all great! Wish we had seen some possums but I think it may have been too cold. Staff were really helpful and friendly and... More

We stayed at the Possums Hideaway in April 2014, it is such a beautiful spot. Very quiet and peaceful. The possum cabins are very private and just gorgeous. The little kitchen has everything you need and comes stocked with the basics for your stay (tea, coffee, milk, fruit, bread etc.). The bathrooms are lovely, a bit of a surprise when... More

We stayed a as a couple for one night in May. We had a two bedroom cottage to ourselves and it was great! We cranked up the log fire and got pizza delivered to our door! The accommodation is fairly simple but definitely all you need. I would definitely stay again.

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

Our family - 4 adults & 2 pre-schoolers- had the Laurel Lodges and it was perfect. Plenty of room, comfy beds,very adequate kitchen and a lovely cosy fire. 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
