Open fireplace, books, CDs, TV/DVDs, complete cooking facilities incl. BBQ, spacious timber deck, a hot bath and ensuite; all these we trust will make your stay unforgettable

HORTICULTURAL: Norala Garden is a BRIGHT OPEN GARDEN icon and was highly recommended on 3AW Big Backyard in 2014. Garden lovers will delight in the splendid renowned garden, established by Norma McGown and Alma Stanhope in the 1960s. Their landscaping story is local lore and the garden is a testament to their love of beautiful European landscaping with extensive English-style dry stone walling and terracing.

FLY FISHING: Personally crafted maps with up to date information about fishing hot spots and fly-patterns are provided. A sure-fire way, to catch a local, naturally spawned trout

PEDALLING: A healthy and refreshing way to tour the region. This means you can sample the local wines and the region's best produce in style.

HOME GODDESS/KITCHEN KING: Hate having to buy the good oils and spices for dressing your meals on your weekend away? Our kitchen supply of olive oils will complete your gourmet meals, the oils you choose for cooking we leave up to you

LUXURY COMFORTS: You can enjoy the creature comforts of an open fireplace with wood supplied. It will keep the cottage extra warm during those cool High Country nights.

Mrs Simpson at Norala Garden is Non Smoking.

Unfortunately won't accept families with children under 8, and children have to be supervised by an adult along the creek at all times. This is because Norala Garden has direct and unfenced access to Baker's Gully, which is a seasonal creek that can flow strongly at times, and contains a few deeper pools.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Heaven on earth! When we opened the door to the cottage we knew that it was exceptional! The garden is absolutely beautiful and backs on to the flowing Ovens river. There is, also, a lovely creek that runs through the garden with three bridges crossing it- which all adds to the wonderful night's sleep in the very comfortable beds! This property is amazing, to say the least!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic property, we loved it. The property is perfect. Gorgeous cottage with everything you could hope for. Lovely kitchen, good bathrooms, new laundry facilities, comfortable beds. The location was excellent with direct access to bike paths and the river.
