Driving along winding roads lined with evergreen trees, with a view to the rich-red terracotta roof-tiled homes in the hilly near distance, it evokes a feeling of being on a dreamy holiday in Tuscany, Italy.
After a pleasant drive, you will reach the large lake (with an island golf circuit), dog-friendly walk track and children's play area. There is even a cafe nestled among the greenery. It's easy to spend a few hours here, just exploring and enjoying the surrounding views.
Hidden Valley park with lake and children's playground
Peering through the windows, it looks immaculately presented. There are several areas inside that are available for casual get-togethers, functions and events - able to host anywhere from 10 to 350 guests.
There are newly built accommodation zones (3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms townhouses) for guests to stay and enjoy the resorts facilities, which also includes a gym. Bookings for these commenced in late-2019. Walking around, you will readily see ducks, kangaroo and possibly other wildlife freely roaming in the distance (please drive slowly!).
Even if not indulging within the resort itself, Hidden Valley is a lovely spot for a summer drive, picnic lunch or ice cream as you stroll around the lake, and look out to the rolling hills and envy the small community of people lucky enough to live in Hidden Valley.
