“For the past four October long week-ends the Illawarra Outdoor Club www.ioc.org.au have spent three nights at McPhersons Plains Alpine Retreat. On Saturday night we have enjoyed dinner provided by the retreat followed by a dance party with music from the IOC DJ. Julie and her family have always joined in and provided some of the entertainment. Our club have always been made welcome and nothing has been a trouble to the hosts, our enjoyment of the retreat and surrounding area has always been paramount.

The resort is a complete change to the life style that we have on the coast and each year the number of members attending has increased. We would encourage social groups to pay a visit to the retreat and area away from the usual busy city life and enjoy having the wild brumbies and other native animals share your holiday. We always leave relaxed and look forward to our next visit.”

“Great Divide Tours has stayed at McPherson's Plains Retreat on several occasions over the past four years. We have visited it in Summer and enjoyed Murder Mystery nights facilitated by Julie and Ron and spent many winter nights in the warm hospitality of this delightful place. Without exception our clients simply love their time at McPherson's Plains Retreat, the bush setting, the uniquely Australian accommodation, the overwhelming hospitality of our hosts Emma and Jörg, not to mention the delight on the kids faces when Santa arrives on his Tractor, all make our stays a highlight. The great food and fun times in front of the open fire on a cold snowy night, the laughs and dancing are what make this place unique, rewarding and why we keep returning.”
