Potager, The, Castlemaine

The Potager at Golden Point is a blissful country retreat only an hour and a half from Melbourne. Set amidst soaring Lombardy Poplars, this 1870’s sandstone cottage on four and a half acres, is reminiscent of a French farmhouse in Provence. There are three bedrooms, two bathrooms, fully equipped kitchen, large living room with a generous open stone fireplace, eclectic collection of books, music and art. Beyond the swimming pool is the Potager garden, which was laid out in 1990 and created from a ‘clay pan’. Located only 5 minutes from Castlemaine, 30 minutes from the therapeutic spa waters of Hepburn Springs, the fabulous Bendigo Art Gallery and Maryborough – with golf, horse riding and tennis all close by. The Potager is a perfect place to rest and recharge the batteries.

Where Are Australia's Best Beaches?

Australia's Best Beaches

Australia has miles and miles of shoreline but which beaches are really great? Ultimately it depends on what you're looking for in a beach. Pristine wilderness without a single footprint in sight, the sparkle of cosmopolitan high rise on the waters edge, the adrenalin pumping roar of a powerful surf beach, or quite simply the perfect white squeaky sand that squelches between your toes.
