Tucked away on a secluded estate adjacent to Penrose State Forest,
The Vale is a hidden gem in the gardens of the Southern Highlands.
The crown jewel of the garden is its Tasmanian Rainforest which comprises of 20 stunning specimen of man ferns for a total of over 2000 years of growth.
The Vale is home to a varied array of animals: two alpacas that protect a flock of Dorper sheep. Chickens, Indian Runner Ducks a Labradoodle and a Gatto can also be spotted on the grounds.
An older and two less mature orchards are scattered though the grounds. The best time to visit to is late summer, when the majority of the trees is producing ripe fruits: peaches, figs, quinces and apples are just a very small example of what The Vale produces.
