Jet-setting gourmands David Hay and Michael Speers are practically tourism royalty for their extraordinary run hosting the original Thorn Park in the Vines experience for many years. Their seamless move, both physically and spiritually, from their historic homestead nearby to this modern incarnation delighted their legion of loyal guests. Here, among the vines and mature gums is the same superb hospitality guests have come to love, but in a bold new setting.
The centrepiece of the new Thorn Park by the Vines experience is the food and wine adventure. The relaxed formality of their sumptuous dinner parties befits the Australian architectural style and allows the superb produce to shine. Begin in the gorgeous lounge with a drink and segue into a journey of slow food and great conversation. The open plan places the theatre of the kitchen on show, lending a relaxed and convivial vibe.
Guests choose from three delightful rooms, each finely appointed for comfort and indulgence. Each has its own bushland outlook and can be taken as a couple or better still, bring a group of six for a memorable break. A library and quiet spaces provide the opportunity to read and reflect.
David and Michael love to share their knowledge of the Clare with guests. They will ensure you uncover the best of the valley with their generous tips tailored to your interests in food, wine and nature.
