The Fragrances of Australia
Updated: Feb 4
When you're looking for a country escape for two, it doesn't get more Australian than the experience offered by one of Berrima's earliest settler cottages that has just hit the market. Without doubt, the scents of the amenities draw on the native fragrances of every part of the country.
Take A Deep Breath...
If you LOVE the idea of a LONG SLOW bath, then Oldbury Cottage's bathroom won't disappoint. You'll happily spend hours luxuriating.
There's underfloor heating, fluffy white towels, endless hot water, bath robes, and fragrant Australian botanical amenities.
You'll find yourself surrounded by an amalgam of eucalyptus timber slabs, felled on site 150 years ago and some modern comforts. The ceiling is made from packing crates (some still bearing early Australian brands) and other random scraps - pretty much anything useful that Patrick Maloney, the beneficiary of the Crown grant could lay his hands upon.
While you're taking a bath, gazing upwards you may notice parts of the ceiling bear various stencilled emblems, some more obscured by the passage of time than others. Of the early Australian manufacturers present, one crate clearly shows the emblem of the Cowan & Israel Soap & Candle Works - a company based near Glebe Point on Johnston's Bay in the mid-1800s.
UNDERFLOOR heating keeps your feet toasty warm during Berrima's chilly winters and fluffy white towels and bathrobes add a touch of comfort to the rustic surrounds.
Sourced from virtually every part of the country, our WALLAWA Indigenous Botanical amenities provide a sense of the beauty of Australia's native flora. Skin and haircare products feature the fragrances of Victorian Eucalyptus, South Australian Emu Bush, New South Wales Tea Tree, Queensland Lemon Myrtle, Tasmanian Bush Pepper and even the Northern Territory's Kakadu Plum.
Drop a bath bomb into the bath, add steaming hot water and forget about yesterday's baggage.
