What’s a house without a garden and garden without a house? Well, one very special house and garden relationship has been going on in Mount Gambier for over 140 years.

Set atop the highest point in this wonderful city, Colhurst House has been an institution for locals and visitors alike.

The well kept gardens and manicured beds mirror the strong symmetrical lines of this imposing residence.

The view overlooking the main streets of the city and the hills leading up to the Blue Lake are wonderful as its location within walking distance of the main streets, restaurants, shops and town centre.

Having been through a number of owners and uses, including RAF Officers quarters in WW2, current owner Guy Matthews is adamant this this grand residence will remain a highly sought after bed & breakfast for many years to come.
