The surroundings are serene, making it the perfect venue for a relaxing weekend away.
In terms of foodie delights, the Argus Dining Room which is located within the grounds of Peppers Mineral Springs retreat boasts delicious Modern Australian fare with a focus on freshly sourced regional produce.

The dining experience was very pleasant. Each dish showcased local produce that was executed very well. We were impressed by the good balance of flavours and nicely added textures that came with every course.
