We stayed in the cottage as part of a larger family group. The facility was extremely clean and well kept. It is an excellent venue for families with plenty of room and onsite activities available. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The grounds were also well maintained in a beautiful setting.

I spent three nights in one of the Linden lodges with my family over the long weekend. The lodge was much bigger than I'd expected and had everything we needed. Very comfortable, clean and warm with the temperature not so outside. The kids absolutely loved everything about our trip to the mountains and it really came down to Federation Gardens....

It is heart warming Erin to read that your stay at Federation Gardens created some amazing memories for your children. It is always wonderful to see families enjoying playing together and having fun on the property. Whilst our aim is certainly not to have children crying as they leave - it is great to hear that your son enjoyed himself...

Arrived after an all day drive to Federation Gardens - staying in a Pine Lodge - spacious, comfortable, very clean and everything you need in the kitchen. Great location for touring around the Blue mountains and at the end of the day back to peaceful garden setting. Excellent facilities with pool, tennis court, BBQ facilities - would recommend to couples...

Great spot, only 15 mins to scenic world. Cottages nicely done with a well equipped kitchen. The heated pool is a real bonus and the games room and outdoor equipment keep the kids busy even on a cold day. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend it. The staff are really helpful and friendly. We had a great couple of days.

Our kids loved toasting the complimentary marshmallows, it was the highlight of our stay. The BBQ and recreational facilities also made our family holiday fun (and easy for us parents). Would definitely recommend to other families looking for a convenient location and plenty of activities to keep the kids entertained.

My family and I stayed 1 night but wished we had booked longer. A great effort has gone into making this place awesome. We loved all the facitilities and took most the day moving from one activity to the next. Have already started to recommend this place to family and friends.

Lovely place to stay. Stayed here with my family. Kids wanted to stay only at accommodation because of the great facilities (did not want to sight see the blue mountains). Would recommend at least 2 nights to fully enjoy the place. Very clean and quiet. Great little pool to swim for the kids even though outside the glass enclosure around...
