It is with great pleasure we welcome you to Hillcrest House Binda, the new hallmark in luxury splendour. 

Hillcrest House Binda is an ideal location for a short-stay break from the fast pace of city life, a girl’s weekend or a unique place to enjoy a special anniversary. Only a few hour’s drive from Sydney, and one hour from Canberra, the central location of Binda sees us close-by to the Southern Highlands and offers something special as an accommodation option for visitors to Goulburn, Crookwell, Taralga and even Bathurst and Orange.

Enjoy peace and tranquillity offered by the rolling green landscapes of the Upper Lachlan Shire. Experience gourmet foods crafted from local paddock to plate produce as you relax in a secluded stone cottage that truly redefines luxury.

Plan your next destination weekend, even if it a last-minute decision, and take some time to truly relax your mind and body in a lush country experience that will bring you the absolute best that our region has to offer.

We offer special midweek packages for those looking for a couple’s retreat, or those looking for an ideal country getaway for a group of friends, making the most of our 4 luxurious bedrooms and ample living space. Our bespoke Romantic getaway packages can also include a local chef to provide you with delicious meals during your stay.

At Hillcrest House we are truly redefining the Luxury Country Getaway:

“Ours is a land where the four seasons meet in glorious splendour. At 750 metres (2,310 feet) above sea level, we sit; ‘Nestling in an uplands cradle where The Great Dividing Range sends streaming to the western rivers, the waters from the winter snows and never-failing showers of spring ….Reminiscent of the Downs of England, the undulating emerald hills roll towards the horizon on every hand” – as depicted by William A Bayley, noted Australian Historian.


“Hillcrest Binda is an eight-year restoration and reimagining, designed to be gentle on and supportive of the environment. Hillcrest Binda today is a gorgeous 1870s granite stone farmhouse with true heritage, exceptional presence and captivating views. Our tranquil 6-1/2-acre estate nestles in a secluded hillside crest.

“Hillcrest Binda redefines the luxury country escape: It speaks to your imagination and to your heart and soul. It is where the old meets new, bold meets beautiful and where colour and texture are the crowning elements of this property’s inner reimagining.


“Hillcrest Binda connects with nature – with gardens beautiful in plantings and structure, and designed to be sustainable through the seasons. It is home to a wonderful array of birdlife and kangaroos that peep in from the bordering forests.

“We are located near the township of Crookwell on the edge of the Binda hamlet known for its gorgeous Georgian-architecture influenced stone-buildings. We are an easy drive on well sealed roads 3 hours from Sydney, 1-1/2 hours from Canberra and 45 minutes from Goulburn on the Goulburn–Bathurst Road.

“We truly hope you attain as much pleasure during your stay as we have received in creating Hillcrest House Binda,

Annette and Wentworth Hill, your hosts.
