“Our wedding at Tindarra... priceless memories”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 5, 2014

Matt and I decided to get married at Tindarra after one amazing family holiday there. We had booked our wedding for November 2014 but decided in October last year to bring the wedding forward... so forward infact that we wanted to get married in two months' time!
The managers, Rosie and Steve, were remarkably accommodating to this sudden change of plans, despite being booked out for the date we had chosen to marry (Jan 4th...peak!). Rosie played the role of wedding planner with ease, and jumped straight on the phone to tee up the most amazing wedding celebrant ever, Jennafer Whelan. Within hours we had a date set, a celebrant locked in, and food organized. Rosie made what could have been a very stressful time seamless... and FUN!
The facilities at Tindarra are second to none. The pool is fantastic, and every room comes with spa. There are pet bunnies for kids to wander down and play with. A gorgeous new barbeque area with bar has been set up. A fire pit for toasting marshmallows. But without doubt the biggest draw card of the resort is its location. Right on the river. For as long as I live I will never ever forget the Emmylou blowing its horn as Matt and I were pronounced husband and wife. It was perfect.
There are not enough words to thank Rosie and Steve for their help. We considered them to be OUR guests at our wedding... not us as their guests on the resort. Steves humor and acceptance of Rosies good natured bossiness is inspiring.. haha... without a doubt we will be back time and time again!
Btw... if marrying in the Echuca/Moama region, do yourself a favor and get in touch with Fiona from Truffles. A lovely woman who made the best wedding cake I have ever tasted!

What a wonderful place, accommodation, staff and position. Pool was clean and the bar and entertainment area was so much fun. The grounds were well maintained and it was so peaceful, we were a group of over 20 Ladies and we all had a great time and look forward to going back.

We have just returned from a week at Tindarra over Christmas and cannot stop raving to our friends and family about how great the resort is. We had a 2 bedroom pool villa, with 2 adults and 3 kids. What we loved about the resort
1. Even though it was at full capacity it never felt busy and packed with people. Often we had the pool and spa all to ourselves.
2. The pool, spa area is what attracted us to the resort. There are plenty of lounges to relax on, two warm spas, plus noodles & pool toys for the kids to use.
3. As parents we could sit out out on our deck and watch the kids play in the pool, without having to leave the comforts of our unit. Poolside units are ideal for those travelling with kids and need to keep an eye on them while they swim.
4. This is a really easy going, relaxed resort. We have been fortunate to travel Australia and stay at many Holiday Parks/Caravan Parks/Resorts and often there are so many rules attached and re enforced by owners/ managers that the stay becomes not so enjoyable. Tindarra has found the balance, Rosie and Steve perfect hosts..hats off to you both!
5. The units are quite large which is great for a family of 5. We never felt like we were living on top of each other, the bedrooms are large, separate lounge area was great, especially as it was at the opposite end to the kids bedroom, which meant we could relax and enjoy some TV in the evening knowing the noise wouldn't wake the kids up
I could probably go on and on about all the other little things we loved about the place, most have already been said by other reviewers.
There are a couple of small criticism we could make and I'm really reluctant to mention them as I wouldn't like anybody reading this review to be put off my them.
1. First the 2 bedroom units share a common wall, and in the dining/kitchen area there is an internal door, great for those with 2 families wanting to share. However we heard everything that went on next door, music, draws being opened and closed,conversations, a cough and sneeze, plus the smells from meals & coffee etc. I'm not suggesting that the guests staying next door where rowdy and loud at all, and fortunately it did appear to be just in the dining/kitchen area that the noise was an issue, however not sure how the noise carried on their side given the layout of the unit was different to ours.
2. You can smoke on the deck outside your unit, which is great if you are a smoker, not so great if you don't and are sitting outside on your deck trying to relax, or eat & drink and the smoke from your neighbors continually floats your way. I'd love to see them make the outside deck areas a little more private from the neighboring units, perhaps a privacy screen, or plant a hedge
3. Where are the BBQ's ??? Would be great to see some BBQ's scattered through the resort, would just about make the place perfect

We obtained a 4 night package through Luxury Escapes in a 3 bedroom villa and we were blown away when we got to the Resort from our huge welcome by Rosie, then by the actual villa and surrounds, we felt like we had won the lotto. My partner and two adult kids 22 and 19 had the most relaxing wonderful time and wished we could of stayed longer. My partner fished, we had drinks on our balcony every evening and breakfast overlooking the beautiful banks of the Murray from our kitchen table. Rosie and Steve were always on hand if we needed anything, from a quick chat or a bit of info on the fish my partner had snagged. We absolutely loved the pool area and the spa caves and utilized it to the maximum. We wouldn't hesitate recommending this first class resort to anyone. We travelled end of November and the weather was unbelievable. Thank you to Tindarra Resort for making our long overdue getaway so relaxing

We stayed for three nights this second time round. Once again Steve and Rosie were wonderful hosts, patient, helpful and friendly, especially with the kids. There has been an obvious steady improvement throughout the facility with the new campfire and bar area being a great addition to make the stay have a bit of the "glamping" feel.
Fantastic location with the ability to hire a few bikes and within ten minutes ride into town and explore the local attractions.
2 bedroom villa was perfect. Everything was clean and working and very comfortable.
It was a shame to leave. No doubt we will be back.

What a friendly relaxing place! The owners, Rosie and Steve are the perfect hosts.
The kids loved the baby ducks visiting for breakfast every morning, the beautiful pool with the waterfall, the amazing playground (all in eyesight from our Villa), catching Yabbies with dad for the first time, watching the paddle steamers on the Murray, visiting the chooks and the rabbit...the kids did not want to leave the resort and we didn't have a need too for the whole four days we stayed.
For us parents....how relaxing even with three kids under 6! Our baby slept because it was so tranquil. Our other two were so happy and entertained that not a winge was heard. Our beautiful luxurous two bedroom Villa had everything we needed plus more. Plus a heated spa while the kids swim in the pool was lovely.
We will definitely be back soon and recommend Tidarra resort to all our friends.

Stayed here for 3 nights in a 3 bedroom villa. It was just the 4 of us - 2 Adults and 2 very young children (2.5 years and 6 months). We had a villa facing the river and it was fantastic. The villa itself was huge and catered to our needs in every way. It was very clean, comfortable with modern fixtures and fittings. There was a mini-bar also - which was good as I was itching for a beer when we arrived! There's plenty of space between the villa and the river which was good as it allowed our 2.5 year to run around and chase the ducks!
Rosie and Steve, who run the resort, where excellent and always happy to help out where they can.
The only (small) issue I have was with the internet booking process. I asked for a river view villa and made a request for a cot and highchair within my booking, but got an automated response saying that we were in a pool side villa and there was no reference regarding the cot and highchair. However, this was easily fixed with a reply email and sorted out promptly.
We'll be back - for sure - and will probably bring family and friends with us next time!

Room Tip: Riverside villas are great for a bit of space at your back deck. But if you've got kids that wan...
