Koendidda Country House – Indigo Valley

Surrounded by perfectly manicured gardens and picturesque fields lies Koendidda Country House, an exquisite Georgian Estate in north-eastern Victoria.

Three and a half hours drive from Melbourne, down a pretty country lane lies the manor house. The two-story mansion was built with hand-made brick over a century ago, the cast-iron balconies draped with fragrant flowers. Listen to the burbling of the fountain and wake to the sights of parrots and native births bathing in the water, or sit in the shade of the magnolia tree, enjoying  the serenity of the expansive property.

Rooms are decorated in period-style, immaculately preserving the house’s rich history. Enjoy the Humphrey Pooley suite, boasting a super-king bed, adjoining private sitting room, expansive shared balcony and ensuite, or pamper yourself in the Lady Franklin Room, which boasts a full Victorian bath and separate shower. Each room features fluffy bathrobes, tea and coffee making facilities, and electric blankets to keep you toasty. Included in your stay is a full cooked breakfast, served in the impeccable dining room.

Koendidda Country House is a treat for the senses: Enjoy a regal three-course seasonal dinner in the Formal Dining Room, fresh and delectable meals served on a mahogany table. High tea, serving freshly made scones, tea brewed to perfection and other delicious treats is served in the lounge room next to a roaring fireplace.

A sunset pizza and wine menu is available to enjoy on your balcony, complete with a bottle of wine of your choice. Barbecue packages are also available for you to cook succulent steaks and sausages to perfection on the outdoor barbecues. Otherwise, explore the excluded nooks and crannies of the property with a prepacked sweet or savory picnic rug and umbrella. Discover luxury, charm and splendor at the Koendidda country house in Victoria’s gold rush province.
