We use Gilgara for our Balance Breaks (health retreats) several times a year and absolutely love it. Angus is so accommodating, the grounds are stunning, the modern garden suite accommodation is great for our guests wanting something a little more luxe, huge bathrooms with a spa bath whilst still remaining comfy. We also book out the whole homestead - which... More

Beautiful bushland setting with modern conveniences. Far enough out of town to be quiet but close enough to enjoy everything the region has to offer. Angus was lovely and nothing was too much trouble. Would highly recommend and will definitely be back.

We stayed at Gilgara over several days when it was the venue for our daughter's wedding. From start to finish the owner, Angus, was generous, accommodating and flexible, allowing us to make use of the grounds and facilities to provide a magical experience for our daughter and her guests. We booked out the whole place and nothing we wanted to... More

We were greeted by the very friendly host Angus who showed us to our room for 3 nights. I must admit I was a little disappointed in the room, with nothing standing out as a major problem, but a lot of little things such as lack of wifi in room, no full hanging wardrobe so I couldn't hang my long...

We’ve been lucky enough to stay at Gilgara Retreat several times throughout the last year while we were planning our wedding down south.

Spent two nights here. Originally booked into a room in the homestead, which we found a tad dark and depressing when we got there - no one was around at all and the atmosphere wasn't very welcoming. Also (our fault for not checking) our room didn't have air con, and it was a hot day, so we asked Angus by... More
