Enjoying the area

With its extensive grounds, landscaped gardens, swimming pool, library and sweeping views across the Kangaroo Valley landscape, guests are already spoilt for choice at Ooralba. But beyond the Estate opportunities abound to explore the stunning South Coast and Southern Highlands region and enjoy the outdoor pursuits, local produce and wines the area is famous for. Our expert team can help you plan excursions for your guests ahead of time, or our on-site Concierge service can suggest and organise experiences based on guests’ interests during their stay. 

Kangaroo Valley is extraordinarily beautiful, one of only seven enclosed valleys in the world, with the National Trust protected village at its heart. The lush dairy farmland along the Kangaroo River rises to rainforested escarpments on all sides. 

Guests can enjoy bushwalking, kayaking, golf, horse riding, game fishing, diving, stand up paddle boarding, excellent local dining and exploring the South Coast’s stunning unspoilt beaches. Artist Arthur Boyd’s property, homestead and studio at Bundanon, overlooking the Shoalhaven River, is a hidden gem well worth visiting.

In The Press

"Orchards, vegetable patches, olive groves are all at the back door, tree-ripened fruit, space for children to run with no neighbours in earshot, clean air. Once the staples of ordinary Australian country life, these simple qualities are all too rare in an increasingly complex 21st century. They have become the hallmarks of a new ideal of luxury."
