There are many things to be enjoyed while staying at our park ...

The Padthaway golf course is right next door. This course is unique as it was carved amongst existing gum trees and has the original stone settler's cottage as it's club house. Golf is best played from April to November when the fairways are green. There are some lovely views to be had from several vantage points.

The Padthaway Estate Vineyards and the historic Padthaway Homestead can be seen from here. This is definitely worth a stroll and can be accessed from the park.

If you like walking, there are marked walking tracks which lead into the Padthaway Conservation Park. The trail starts from our park and leads you through native scrub. Typical of this area are eucalypts, banksias, stringy barks, wattles and tea trees which are spectacular when flowering. It is especially lovely in spring because there are many varieties of native orchids about. Keep your eyes open! There is an abundance of bird life. Keep a watch out for the endangered black cockatoo. Many native animals such as kangaroos, echidnas and koalas also habit this reserve.
