The property is bounded by the Little Yarra River and Brittania Creek, with two lakes, river flats and many other natural features to capture the artist’s imagination. In the background are the imposing peaks of the Great Dividing Range, including Mount Donna Buang. So the site is rich in subjects for artists with a love for the natural beauty of the Yarra Ranges.
For those needing refreshments, there is a cafe serving food and drinks.
