We are indeed fortunate to have the Goobarragandra River flowing through Elm Cottage and especially in the summer the river allows for a host of activities for all ages. Swimming in the crystal fresh water, kayaking, tubing, fishing, or just splashing around from dawn to dusk are just some of the ways the river provides to entertain you and your family and friends.
Of course, for some just the view and sounds of the river are sufficient to make their holiday and there are plenty of spots to sit and relax, read a book, or have a barbeque next to the river.
But there are a host of other activities available and the beauty of Elm Cottage is it is very much a year-round experience perfectly suited for people of all ages and interests. You can find details of some of these activities listed here, but of course if you have a particular interest and need further details, please do not hesitate to contact us and we will be delighted to assist.
Wine tasting, the gold rush heritage, beautiful country towns and local festivals – all available to you to pick and choose from!
