If you want to take a break from the hustle and bustle of city life, Jamieson Valley Retreat is the perfect answer to clear your mind of your demanding work and daily life chores. The 25-acre property boasts of a magnificent high country mountain, kilometres of beautiful nature walks, and a breathtaking garden where some 150-year old oak trees quietly sit. But what makes one’s trip to Jamieson Valley memorable is a dip in the magnificent river in which visitors can head out for a beautiful afternoon of paddling the picturesque stretch of the river or just sit for hours relishing the beauty of its clean spring water.

“When we were considering buying the property, my husband was immediately attracted to the river,” recalls Filipina owner Angie Leong. Freddie’s love for photography paved way for the couple to discover the property. “In 2005, an Australian couple asked Freddie to print photos of Jamieson. Instantly, we fell in love with the place. Then the couple mentioned that it was for sale. After long negotiations and our desire for a quiet life, we decided to buy it,” she adds.

The place abounds with unique activities for young and old alike such as fishing/yabbying, swimming, bushwalking, bird watching, landscape photography, tennis, picnic/BBQ, lawn sports (football, frisbee or cricket), reading, meditating, sunbathing or stargazing at night. The town has a number of near-by attractions—snow sports at Mt. Buller, water sports at Lake Eildon, and fishing at Howqua, Jamieson and Goulburn Rivers.

From the beauty of the mountain, to the splendour of the garden, and the sparkling spring water from the river, there is no end to the breathtaking vista of the place. The place is ideal for couples, families, and small groups wishing for a quick visit or long stay. It also has an Oaktree Gallery which can accommodate 40 people for functions.
