Spicers Hidden Vale

The property has a newly-built luxury homestead, replacing the 100 historic homestead destroyed by fire in 2018, which houses reception and Homage Restaurant, and 34 heritage cottages and luxury cabins with 1, 2, 3 and 4 bedrooms overlooking the scenic countryside. Each cottage has a feeling of privacy and its own verandah, and is fitted out with stylish heritage decor while also giving visitors the modern comforts of home such as private ensuites, TV,  bathrobes, slippers and luxurious bathroom amenities. A fireplace helps keep things cosy in cooler weather while you can be sure of summer comfort with air-conditioning throughout.

You can do as much or as little as you like at Spicers Hidden Vale, from sitting on the verandah enjoying the view while you sip on a cool drink as kangaroos happily munch on grass, to more organised activities. It’s also very pleasant lazing by the large pool with heated spa or in the rock pool next to the main homestead. And, for those who like adventure, there's an amazing array of experiences on tap.
