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

Myself and two others stayed in the Orient train carriage and we loved it! We only wish we could have stayed longer. Marie was very friendly, accommodating and helpful. The carriage itself was lovely - clean, comfortable and beautiful, as well as the added novelty and fun of staying in an old train carriage! The grounds were beautiful and we regret that we didn't have time to enjoy all the facilities.
A truly unique experience - such fun! Great location near all the wineries, relaxing and beautiful. Next time we will go for longer!
Marie was super helpful from the first point of contact.
We stayed in the Victorian which was lovely. Marie had made us up a fire in the wood burner which was welcomed later that night.
All round a great experience and looking forward to a return visit.
Great location with the wineries/vineyards all around you. Marie was very helpful and friendly with plenty of ideas on what to do while there. Such a unique experience, would definitely stay again.
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!
