TO SEE & DO
The property is nestled away in the northern district of Arcadia, firstly named by one of Australia’s earlier explorers because of the “Arcadian” lifestyle, meaning idyllic, simple, pastoral and peaceful. Arcadia and the surrounding Galston districts have been discovered for their "epicurean” lifestyle boasting 13 cafes and restaurants within a 15 minute drive from Galston village. Bush walking, kayaking, and bike riding are some of activities enjoyed in the area.
