Weekend at The Werribee Mansion

And so, secret anniversary location revealed - wonderful, relaxing, luxurious Werribee Mansion Hotel. Formerly St Joseph’s Seminary and created by the Corpus Christi College in 1926, the hotel used to house and educate thousands of young men who were in training for priesthood from the late 1920s to the 1970s. As you can see from these shots the location is simply stunning and once there you don't have to move a muscle; bar, spa, winery and restaurant all in the one location. Our kinda getaway - Lazy!

My anniversary weekend started with a surprise bouquet of lily and orchid flowers followed by gourmet picnic on the grounds, a trip to the Spa for a facial, and the finale, drinks and dinner in Joseph's restaurant.  We shared the most incredible dessert which I would go back for alone. Pictured here, it's called 'The Carnival' : toffee apples, jelly, caramelised pop corn, candy floss and topped off with ice cream - heavenly!

We both had such a lovely time and it was good to take a little time out for just the two of us. If you go, take your cheque book, it's pricey, we may be on beans for the rest of the month but so worth it.
