A fully integrated sustainability and wellness offering which

Guests also experience the signature sustainability and wellness style of Six Senses with treatment rooms, hydro & relax, a pool house, earth and grow labs as well as numerous on-site vegetable and production gardens.
In addition, the hospitality offering comprises a hotel venue bar and dining, open to both the public and guests as well as the farm style Village Green surrounded by an eclectic mix of re-purposed buildings
including The Hearth, The Barn, The Steak House, The Baker, The Providore, and children’s exploration zones. A regenerated oak truffle farm also invites guests to picnic under the groves or to embark on a unique foraging adventure.
Woods Bagot together with OCULUS are carefully regenerating the surrounding environment – a combination of a unique Australian mountain range ecosystem with its associated Grande European planting species. Hence its name, Burnham Beeches.

Until 1954, the house and property were handed over to Mr and Mrs Nicholas’ company and converted to a research laboratory. The estate was also used as a children’s hospital during the war.
The original Alfred Nicholas Gardens of the estate were renowned for the extensive water features including a boathouse, Blackfish Pons and lakes. (Parks Victoria)
