The Retreat


The Gabbinbar gardens are over 160 years old and cover many acres. The large fig, bunya and cedar trees were planted in 1863 and tower over the historic estate creating a feeling of calmness and tranquility. These evergreen trees, combined with freshly mowed lawns, precision-trimmed hedging and seasonal blooms leave an indelible imprint that lingers in memories for years to come.
