Lavendale Country Retreat has plenty to do if you want to just relax close to “home”. The river is a very peaceful place to walk along. It is completely natural and the only paths are made by kangaroos. In places it is hard going, but finding a nice place to sit on the bank is worthwhile. It is a Wheatbelt river and may be dry in summer, but even then, it is wonderful just enjoying the peace and nature at its rawest.
Always wear boots when walking in the bush. The sandalwood plantation is great to wander through and enjoy the many native spieces of acia which host the local genus of Sandalwood Spicatum.
We do not have scheduled, formal activities.
Lavendale Country Retreat is located about half way between York and Beverley. Half an hour from Northam and an hour from Toodyay. All great towns to explore.
