Riverdale

We purchased Riverdale in 2009 after instantly falling in love with the magic exuding from the beautiful flower gardens, fields, bush lands and old majestic gum trees on the river flats of the Yarra River. We wanted to share this unique place with others and had the idea to develop an accommodation and retreat venue that maintains a strong philosophy of sustainability.

Working with biodynamic principles, we have since been passionately and dedicatedly transforming the property into what some have called a ‘paradise off the grid', relying on solar power and tank water.

The property features a large kitchen and bush food garden, a two-acre flower garden with over 100 rose bushes, and an orchard. With paths bordering the Yarra River and through open fields, and the Warburton ranges as a backdrop, guests can walk and explore the unique beauty this property holds.

Guests can also enjoy swims in the river, games of table tennis, beautiful picnic spots, ride along the passing Lilydale to Warburton trail or take short drives to the many nearby popular attractions including famous Yarra Valley wineries and lush mountain forests.
