The magnificent natural beauty of the area begins on site with landscaped gardens and the Royal Mail Kitchen Garden, one of Australia’s largest hotel kitchen gardens. The garden produces a diverse range of organic heirloom vegetables, herbs, edible flowers, fruit and nuts, which are then creatively incorporated into the day’s menu, including the signature experience, an 8-course Chef’s Tasting Menu, a food lover’s delight.
