Only take less than two hours drive from Sydney CBD, but this place is totally different from hustling bustling city and surprisingly very nice scenic drive along the way. You will see all of these nice view, farms, cattle and sheep grazing on the green field.
The resort has a beautiful lush garden with the fountain and lovely pond in the front and mostly used for the wedding function. Just on that Saturday afternoon, I witness two wedding's ceremony held here.

The night began at the resort reception as a meeting point. 6pm sharp, there was one lady in the different uniform came to us politely and introduce herself as our lovely hostess for the night then escort us to the bar and meet the other diners as well. Canapes and drinks were served right after everyone had arrived. We were all chatting with the other diners who pretty much full of wonder what the dinner would be like since this is the first time for most of us diners.
15 mins later, our hostess told us to come downstairs because the restaurant was about to get moving. Let have alook at what we had for that night.
|Hi Harry 'The Leader'|
|Duck Breast with Pears|
|Salmon Two Ways|
On one side we got four pieces of Salmon deep fried with Tempura batter, wasn't that good good but those marinated raw salmon were absolutely yummy well seasoned and great marinated.
|Beef Fillet with porchini mushroom jus|
Especially the steak, large portion, medium cooked as what I asked and the mushroom jus was pretty good as well. Totally satisfied. At the end, the waitress told us that they were getting the main menu and dessert from Biviano's Italian restaurant just down the road.

|Gateau Petite Range for two|
This dining experience was more like a city tour in a way. They wander around the town and this helpful hostess told us the stories and history about the town as well as serving us unlimited drinks. Roughly after 3 hours, our journey had come to the end, we had a few more shots with our lovely and furry chauffeur then went to bed and out like a light.
Waking up feeling so fresh in the next morning, we strolled along this old historic town on our own, Sunday market and spotted a busy cafe along George street, Simon's Coffee Lounge & Restaurant. By the look of it, without a doubt we went straight to check them out cos we were so starving and in an urgent need of a hot big brekkie.
Generally the atmosphere in the family-run cafe was pretty casual, average and very spacious. Quite variety on the menu to choose from, a classic pancake with maple syrup or a big breakfast set are a cloud pleaser here. Large portion of food which overall taste very good, hot and clean. Apart from that, nothing much to fancy about their coffee.
