Kalinya Estate is a phenomenal property. At the centre, a big grand colonial Australian mansion. There’s a huge, long table suitable for a large social dinner for 20, a tennis court, an amazing pool and spa. The grounds are well maintained, and amazing detail and forethought has gone into the design and layout of everything. We booked the grand homestead and the luxury lodge, we had 18 people, with only couples sharing rooms. Every room had its own ensuite, and it was very spacious for 18. There’s a beautiful grand piano in the music room. Each and every room tastefully decorated.
We booked Kalinya for my partner’s 30th birthday with close friends and family. It was the perfect location to celebrate. Just an hour and 15 out of Sydney city. I can’t recommend this place higher. It’s one of the most beautiful properties we’ve stayed at. We had an amazing weekend, Kalinya Estate has it all, so all that was left to do was enjoy our time with great friends. Mandy was a gem, was so easy to deal with, and helped us tailor our experience to be exactly what we wanted and more.
The Heritage Homestead is one of the finest examples of Australian colonial architecture and craftsmanship, cleverly combined with modern conveniences and style. It is the epitome of Estate living with its large wrap-around verandahs, grand high ceilings, and beautiful vintage finishes. Patterned cornice and artworks hanging on picture rails adorn every room, while the gorgeous polished Blue Gum timber floors grace the living areas creating a natural, inviting atmosphere.

In its former glory, The Barn was originally used to build submarines. Some years later, it became a machinery workshop, which was later still, converted into stunning horse stables.

Featuring striking raked ceilings, exposed Oregon walls and stylish country home finishes with views of the magnificent gardens—it’s craftsmanship at its best.
