Bella Lavender Estate

When visiting Bella Lavender Estate you can walk amongst the fragrant lavender, browse in the Mediterranean style café where you will find local products and produce. Sit back, relax and look across the lavender while you're served a light lunch, home-made sweets or lavender scones with home-made jam and cream. Mario will make you a cup of his famous cappuccino. Not to mention the Riverland's only wood oven pizza. A 10-hole mini golf course and a large children's playground and swing set will keep the kids entertained all afternoon. The lavender farm with its 3500 plants of lavender is set on five acres of land amongst a backdrop of vines and olive trees. As you turn off the bitumen road onto the property and drive towards the café you can be forgiven for thinking you are in Tuscany or Provence. Mario and Lucy are always available to talk to guests about the process of growing, drying and distilling of lavender. During the summer months visitors can view the distillation process as Mario picks and distills and lavender to produce the lavender essential oil used to make the body products and various bath soaps available for purchase.
