We stayed at Federation Gardens for a big birthday celebration. Robyn and Mark certainly made us feel right at home,they went above and beyond their duty as hosts to all of us as a group of 40. The whole weekend was superb; the location, the pool, volleyball and tennis courts, fire pit and to top it off, the cabins; they...

We had the use of the cottage for our weekend escape with family and Robyn and Mark are the ultimate hosts and have gone out of their way to think of all the little things to make the stay so effortless without the need to pack a boot load of luggage and incidentals to enjoy the weekend away.

Thank you for your words. It was lovely to host your stay - and lovely to hear the hum of your guitar playing around the open fire pit on Saturday evening - such a nice way to spend time with your family. Also it was music to our ears to hear on your departure that you are planning a return...

My boyfriend & I visited this lovely property for a last minute weekend away in November. After an extremely tough week for my partner and I, this place was the perfect escape - quiet, relaxing and so beautiful! I originally tried to book 'Eagle View Escape' but as it was booked out, was suggested to try Federation Gardens & Possums...

When it comes to a getaway in the blue mountains, one thing that isn't in short supply is a place to stay. But when I escape to the blue mountains I want to ESCAPE...a cabin that is secluded in the bush but still conveniently located to Blue Mountain attractions, has a fire place, comfy bed and a spa...Federation Gardens couple...

Lovely place to stay, comfortable and well-appointed cabin (very clean!), lots to do at the property and in the surrounding area. Loved the little touches like fire turned on before we arrived and a packet of marshmallows for the fire-pit! The staff were super friendly and helpful!

Our cabin had a lovely setting in amongst the trees. It was very spacious and well appointed. Loved having our own wood burning stove. The breakfast pack was generous and well worth the extra expense. Great place to relax.

Perfect for us. The 2br villa had lots of room, heater was pre-turned on, the kids called it 'luxury'. The facilities are well resourced but in that relaxed rather than ultra modern way - which suited us. Hand fed the local parrots, took a nice swim, kids had fun in the games room, even the marshmallows provided in room (for...

“Would be good to be in one of the 'back cottages' to look out over the bush and be a bit more private as opposed to the front ones. ”
