Set on 70 acres of rolling meadows, Lonsdale Park on the Yarra offers a luxury accommodation experience in the heart of the picturesque Yarra Valley, just a one-hour drive from Melbourne. With expansive views over the bordering Yarra River, guests are invited to relax and indulge in exquisite natural beauty.
The meticulously decorated and architecturally designed bedrooms, living area and kitchen present open and light-filled spaces for guests to enjoy. Floor-to-ceiling windows in every room allow immersion in the magnificent surrounding garden.
Likened to a mini botanical park by visitors, the two-acre landscaped garden was nominated to be a part of the Australian Open Garden Scheme in November 2014. Meandering pathways reach light, open spaces and cool shaded alcoves where light filters through an abundance of both native and European flowers, bushes and trees. The flora changes its colour and form all year round; there is always something different to enjoy, even in the wintertime.
With a focus on environmental sustainability, solar panels provide for the hot water, biodynamic gardening principles are applied in caring for the garden, and the house itself is designed according to passive solar building fundamentals.
Although only recently established, the abundance of positive feedback from guests has made Lonsdale Park on the Yarra a popular destination, a place where visitors from all around the globe have chosen to experience the beauty unique to this part of the world – including recent guests from Germany, Singapore, Malaysia, China and New Zealand.
Lonsdale Park on the Yarra is an ideal place for many different kinds of groups to gather and enjoy time together. Families, friends, wedding parties, work colleagues and more are invited to make themselves at home in this secluded, self-contained accommodation.
