Weekends Away, Sofala.

You can be as active or lazy as you wish on a weekend at Chesleigh. There is a horse, a gold pan, a fireside or comfy chair with your name on it. The food is fabulous, the atmosphere easy and un-hurried and the effect restorative and revitalizing.

Our expert team will guide you through the activities or point out the directions to the lookouts, or through our property should you wish to walk, climb, or go mountain biking and enjoy some time with your partner, your own family or by yourself.

Nestled between rolling hills and trickling creeks, we’re also the only venue in Sofala where you will be taught to pan for gold and then have miles of gold bearing creeks on the property to perfect your skill and try your luck!

With a range of bush walking and running trails where you can also put your fitness to the test in and amongst the rugged beauty of the mountainous property. Those seeking a more relaxing escape may choose to stay put in the heated spa with a glass of wine (or mug of tea) taking in the enormous skies and dazzling sunsets. Our bustling bonfire is the heart of our homestead and has heard many a song and tale over the years.
