Major Hunter Valley tourism development underway

Property and hospitality group Mulpha Australia is expanding its accommodation offering in the Hunter Valley with construction starting on 60 architect-designed eco studio retreats in the grounds of Bimbadgen winery estate.

The Lane Retreat in the grounds of one of Bimbadgen’s 50-year-old vineyards, has been designed to provide a unique accommodation option to complement the brand’s Palmer Lane wedding and events venue and also the winery and tourism offering at Bimbadgen. 

Mulpha also recently acquired the nearby Emma’s Cottage Vineyard boutique winery and accommodation.

Construction of The Lane Retreat is expected to be complete by the end of winter, ready for guests in spring 2022 - which sounds optimistic to me.

The Lane Retreat guests will have access to a new luxury swimming pool and amenities, along with a bespoke store and pantry and VIP access to all Bimbadgen tourism offerings.

Mulpha has appointed Sydney firm Fenisi to design and construct the retreats and Fidem to manage the site, earth works, pool and landscaping. 

“As a group providing premium hospitality and experiences in blue-chip locations, we are excited to be enhancing our Bimbadgen offerings while maintaining the integrity of the estate and environment," said Mulpha general manager of hospitality Belinda Stapleton. 

“This will mean another great on-site accommodation option for events and weddings at Palmers Lane, as well as providing fantastic getaway retreats for people visiting the Hunter. 

“In recent times people have rediscovered the joy of places and simple pleasures closer to home and are looking to treat themselves to short breaks in great locations, with great amenities.

“It’s hard to beat one of Australia’s premier food and wine regions just two hours’ drive from Sydney.”
