This is a 1905 R Carriage that has been restored back to old world class. The Rosewood walls and Jarrah furniture was made by a top marine cabinetmaker. The Rosewood came from the New Parliament house where the Politians went to light to dark so the marine cabinet maker got it

A great experience

The train carriage is something different from usual. The whole area is very laid back. Marie is a super friendly host. She gave us a lot of suggestions and places to go as well.
It was winter and the wind is freezing, the heater at the kitchen area was our life-saver. On our last night. The glass on back door of the carriage was smashed out of nowhere. Marie is very apologetic about it and stay with us awhile to talk. We kinda feel bad that we couldn't give her any reason to why the glass shattered.
Nonetheless, it was a very lovely stay with beautiful sceneries, wine and food.
We had a great time ! Marie was very friendly and helpful, the carriages are great! Would recommend and definitely return! Nice having lots of animals on the property too!
Totally unique experience! Perfect location next to great wineries. Enjoyed cycling through the vineyards. The train carriages are superbly laid out are a great place to stay. The Orient carriage provides plenty of room for two couples. Marie is welcoming and friendly. Highly recommended!
We had a lovely weekend in the Orient train carriage.. It was clean and very cosy, just like the pictures. Everything we needed was available and Marie was very helpful otherwise.
The train its self was nice, exactly how it looked in the photos, cute, cosy and different. Clean bathroom, bedding etc. However, i hate to say this but the grounds were really not taken care of. We were really excited to use the Spa, Tennis Court, Outdoor area but we were really disapointed with this. The spa wasnt even half full, the tennis court had rubbish, the common out door areas needed updating, the furniture had holes and was weather worn you couldnt sit anywhere but your train. I hate to give not great feedback, but as this was a birthday present / 60th for my dad, we had high-hopes and were really let down by the outside areas. If this gets fixed / updated i think this will be a beautiful place to escape too. But we were very disapointed that we were not able to use any outdoor facilities.
Marie and her lovely dogs were very welcoming! The carriage was clean, comfortable, fun and well located for easy access to local cellars.
We had a great stay and would definitely return!
We just spent 1 night at the orient train carriage.

The carriage is a pretty unique accommodation. the location is really convenient near few wineries.
