Riverstone Cottage is the ideal place to get away from the hustle and bustle of city living. The peace and tranquillity of Riverstone Cottage is perfect for those wanting to holiday in a secluded spot, in a unique property full of character and history. Whether you're looking for an adventure filled getaway, a romantic weekend or some quiet family time, the list of reasons to stay goes on and on.

This hand crafted stone cottage sits on the banks of the pristine Goulburn River and if the walls could talk, you would be listening for days. Originally built by hand, stone by stone and once a labour of love, it was originally inhabited by a local family within the historic gold mining region of Tunnel Bend.

You will have your own private access to the river giving you the rare opportunity to jump in directly out the front of the property, maybe after a sauna! You can kayak or drift in a tube and complete the Tunnel Bend Drift… start out the front, float around Tunnel Bend and finish up back where you started… or alternatively, go for a walk through the gold mining tunnel which spans the river bend with the entrance situated on the grounds of the cottage… so much to do or do a little as possible and relax in the tranquil and serene environment.
