The Rift is a grand Victorian Italianate mansion and historic gardens in Bowral. The house is an original 'gentlemen's residence' constructed in the late nineteenth-century. Nestled in the Southern Highlands, a leisurely 90 minute drive from Sydney, The Rift is surrounded by established cold-climate gardens and the lush, rambling countryside.
The Coach House, the estate's original stables has been sympathetically converted into luxurious self-contained accommodation. Sleeping 13 guests across 6 bedrooms, The Coach House is perfect for bridal parties, large groups and family bookings. It is an honour to host wedding and bridal parties who enjoy spacious, designer interiors and light-filled rooms to prepare and relax in before their wedding in the Southern Highlands. Brides and grooms are invited to make use of the Coach House’s stylish interiors and to explore the rambling gardens for their pre-wedding portraits and photography.
The established gardens of The Rift Estate and elegant interiors of The Coach House provide the perfect setting for fashion, homewares, lifestyle and engagement photoshoots and editorials.
