The Braeside Experience

Braeside offers guest a very personal country experience; it is possible to do as much or as little as you please.

Sit back and read a book in front of the fire place, enjoy a romantic glass of wine in the hot tub, or simply enjoy the peace of the Australian bush from your verandah.

Wander our well kept walking paths and avenues and enjoy the beauty of nature including a vast array of natural fauna and flora. Stroll around the scented rose garden or cottage garden, feed the geese and black faced sheep or pick your own vegetables from the old fashioned vege garden.

Arrange a private yoga class or luxuriate with a soothing aromatic massage in the privacy and ambience of the Braeside Residence.

For the more energetic, have a hit of tennis! Enjoy a wine tour of the local Stanthorpe and Ballandean wineries or experience the granite boulders at Girraween National Park.

Whatever you choose to do, the Braeside experience will leave you refreshed and invigorated.

Outdoor Pursuits

Immerse yourself in the peaceful rural environment of Braeside by trekking on your choice of well cared for walking paths. It's a great way to enjoy the vast formal and native gardens and an ideal form of exercise.

Build a camp fire by the old slab hut and savour the aroma as you roast in the camp oven or barbeque by the creek.

Feed the geese and black faced sheep or if you are staying in the Homestead enjoy a hit of tennis.

The Gardens

Braeside Homestead is set in twelve lush acres of private garden, having been designed and nurtured from the original gardens and inspired by former gardeners and historic photographs. The expansive grounds include an exquisite scented rose garden, formal lawns, free form native and exotic gardens and the wonderful old fashioned potager garden. The Homestead Potager Garden combines the functional nature of the English kitchen garden with the style and grace of French fashion; a wonderful source of vegetables for guests during their stay.

Experience the change of seasons from the circular terrace overlooking the park as the many deciduous trees and shrubs turn from lush green to dark crimson and the liquid ambers flush with autumn colour.

Enjoy the wonderful English cottage garden inspired surrounds of the Braeside Cottage – a delight to please your senses.
