Check­list

The Weekend Australian - Travel - - DESTINATION AUSTRALIA -

Guests need to plan ahead; the near­est shops are at Mt Vic­to­ria, 30-40 min­utes away, so bring most of what you need (Ne­spresso and pantry ba­sics are pro­vided and you’re wel­come to pick herbs from the gar­den). Or pick up some su­pe­rior ready meals cooked in the old wood-fired oven at Vesta in Black­heath. More: vestablack­heath.com.au. Lo­cal French-born chef Misha Lau­rent is avail­able for a spot of in­house cater­ing. More: 8things.com.au. Koon­awarra is smartly kit­ted out with a well-equipped kitchen, large TV with Fox­tel, squishy so­fas and an el­e­gant bath­room (two ad­di­tional en­suites will be added this win­ter). The Wi-Fi is patchy but only the most un­ro­man­tic tech geek would want to pin this Bri­gadoon to the grid. Step out­side and smell the roses in­stead. More: den­nar­que.com; vis­itnsw.com.
