A luxuriously appointed estate set amongst rolling vineyards, surrounded by the serenity of the vines, the estate is an ideal escape for food and wine lovers wishing to explore this beautiful region.

Modern Australian yet regionally distinctive in style, the menu at Restaurant Botanica is focused on seasonality and freshness, perfectly complemented by an award-winning wine list and stunning views looking out across our private vineyard to the Brokenback Mountain Range. The restaurant’s very own kitchen garden is the source of many of the herbs and vegetables that add a wholesome and healthy dimension to the dishes.

Enjoy Saturday and Sunday Lunch with live music.

Restaurant Botanica is thrilled to have been awarded the 2017 Award for Excellence for Best Restaurant in a Hotel and Two Wine Glasses in the 2017 Gourmet Traveller Wine List of the Year Awards.
