Relax and rejuvenate with family and friends in the beautiful two-acre garden. Walk amongst majestic gum trees, or go for a swim in the bordering Yarra River.
With a clear philosophy of sustainability, come and experience life 'off the grid'.
Riverdale is set on 15 acres in the heart of the Yarra Valley. We purchased Riverdale in 2009 after instantly falling in love with the magic exuding from the beautiful flower gardens, fields, bush lands and old majestic gum trees on the river flats of the Yarra River. We wanted to share this unique place with others and had the idea to develop an accommodation and retreat venue that maintains a strong philosophy of sustainability.
Working with biodynamic principles, we have since then been passionately and dedicatedly transforming the property into what some have called a ‘paradise off the grid’, relying on solar power and tank water.
The property features a large kitchen and bush food garden, a two-acre flower garden with over 100 rose bushes and an orchard. With paths along the bordering Yarra River and through open fields, and the Warburton ranges as a backdrop, guests can walk and explore the unique beauty this property holds.
Guests can also enjoy swims in the river, games of table tennis, beautiful picnic spots, ride along the passing Lilydale to Warburton trail or take short drives to the many nearby popular attractions including famous Yarra Valley wineries and lush mountain forests.
As the property is off the grid, please note that there is no television, wifi or microwave. But there is mobile phone coverage!
