We wanted to book the recently opened Pumphouse Point for my wife's 60th but we could only get one night so as a fall back we chose to stay at Tarraleah.
We were very surprised to find that this was a highlight of our trip away - while not comparable to Pumphouse, it does provide an excellent experience.
We stayed at House #1 also called the Architect's residence and the quality of the refurbishment and the furniture chosen to compliment it was excellent.
We only had a brief lunch at the cafe but it too was extremely good - it was nearing he end of their day and they even included a complimentary muffin.
There are plenty of walks nearby and the somewhat hidden Tarraleah Falls walk is a must - a new cattle gate has recently been installed across the small bridge crossing the pipes at the lookout but this can be easily opened. Another good trip nearby is the rod to Butler's George which putts the whole site into context when you see the canal and dams that feed the penstock.
We would definitely come again.More
