The elegant homestead blends the traditional Queenslander style with a federation charm. It offers a sumptuous style from a bygone era, where guests can indulge in dressing up for a candlelit silver service dinner or a 'themed' dinner served with stunning food and wine - or just relax.

In this peaceful and restorative setting, the hosts also offer life coaching and residential life focus retreats.

Breakfast is provided and served for all guests and casual dining options are also available indoors. Al fresco dining is available in the French provincial courtyard or in the tranquil gardens.

At Thistledown Country Retreat you are offered options such as gourmet meals and picnic hampers, cooking class packages, body massage, scented spa, local wine and inspiring country walks, and much more.

Thistledown Country Retreat is a perfect getaway for that romantic occasion, honeymoon, friend and family reunions or simply recharging your batteries.
