Bridgeman Downs

Postcode: 4035

Nestled amongst vineyards and overlooking the tranquil waters of Bjelke-Petersen Reservoir, Bridgeman Downs is the perfect getaway. The vineyards are planted to produce Verdelho, Merlot, Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon and surrounded by cattle grazing on the pastured slopes. Sit back, relax and taste premium wine and enjoy genuine country hospitality whilst being entertained by the antics of the dam’s abundant birdlife.
