Just what we were looking for, picturesque setting, a gorgeous, clean and spacious cottage, plenty of things to do both for the kids and adults. Will definitely be back again, literally can't fault it

Thank you 'SUZIE8171' for reviewing your stay with us - we are so glad you had a great getaway. We would love to welcome you back again - perhaps in a different season as no matter what time of year, the Blue Mountains region is spectacular, with the exhilaration of winter, the warmth of summer, the colour of autumn and...

We stayed in the Possum Retreats for a few nights. Basic, comfortable and cosy and all we really needed as we were out a lot of the time exploring. Great location and easy to find. We were lucky enough to essentially have the place to ourselves, too (we went mid week). I did find a dirty tissue between the bed...

It was overall a great little weekend getaway. Perfect for relaxing, with the lookouts surrounding the suburb. Not too far from the Three Sisters & Wentworth Falls. You have the Scenic World within the Three Sisters and you are also a couple hours away from the Jenolan Caves. Night time is beautiful in the cottage.

We booked 3 adjacent 2 bedroom cottages at Federation Gardens for a family weekend in November. (Ourselves, our 3 adult children with partners and 5 grand children.) The whole experience was excellent. Robyn was most personable and helpful without being intrusive. The cottages were comfortable and well appointed. The range of facilities made for an easy and comfortable weekend which...

My family have just returned from Christmas at Federation Gardens. We had a wonderful time with so much do on site or in the surrounding area. The hosts were friendly and helpful and we certainly felt welcome and at home. My family will be very happy to stay here again. Thanks for a relaxing and stress free Christmas.
