The Rift Estate | Large Group Bowral Accommodation

The Rift Estate

Historic Victorian Estate

The Rift is a grand Victorian Italianate mansion and historic gardens in Bowral. The house is an original 'gentlemen's residence' constructed in the late nineteenth-century. Nestled in the Southern Highlands, a leisurely 90 minute drive from Sydney, The Rift is surrounded by established cold-climate gardens and the lush, rambling countryside.

The estate's original stables have been sympathetically converted into heritage Coach House accommodation in Bowral.
