Autumn is the perfect time to enjoy the natural beauty of Wattagan Homestead on more than 200 acres of paddocks and bush land with stunning views across the Brindabella mountains. Complete tranquility and yet only a 20 minute drive from Australia's capital - Canberra. Enjoy exclusive use of the Homestead with cosy open fires, huge chef's kitchens with double ovens, and king-sized dining table that seats ten. Relax in the library with floor to ceiling bookcases or in the comfortable sitting room while the children watch TV in the separate family room. There are five large bedrooms - three with queen beds, one double and one with double bed. Two bathrooms - one with large freestanding bath tub and spacious shower.
Outside, explore the property, hike down to the creek, feed the pet sheep and meet our herd of gentle Murray Grey cattle. Wildlife abounds including kangaroos, wallabies, many species of parrots, wedge tail eagles and echidnas. For the kids, there is a huge front lawn big enough for a game of cricket or soccer and a tennis court.
Close by are some of the region's finest cool climate wineries with regular wine tastings, cafes and restaurants.
So whether you're in town to work, to visit Canberra's iconic national attractions or visiting with family why not combine your trip to the national capital with a tranquil stay on a country property that's conveniently close to the city.
MINIMUM STAY TWO NIGHTS.
