A private parkland space for residents is under development and a planned childcare centre will make life even more idyllic for young families. See kookaburras, galahs, waterbirds and echidnas at Jackson Creek and Albert Road Nature Reserve, or venture out to the state’s oldest homestead, Emu Bottom, built in 1836, to uncover Australia’s pioneering history.
Living at Hermitage is all about celebrating Sunbury’s rich and varied history and connecting with its close-knit, established community.
Home to family-owned vineyards and award-winning wineries, Sunbury’s wine region is famous for its dry-climate drops, including a 2004 Shiraz judged the best in the world. Most of its wineries are close to the main township and within an easy drive of each other.
Sunbury’s connection with Victoria’s history and development is well-known, and it’s widely regarded as the gateway to the Goldfields. The old Sunbury Courthouse, the bluestone homestead at Craiglee Vineyard, and what’s left of Aitken’s Gap Gaol offer a glimpse into times past and strengthen its small-town charm.

In 1996, Joseph and Ellie Obeid bought the Diggers Rest vineyard from Frank and carried on his fine winemaking tradition. Appealing to its more recent history, Obeid Drive
is named after the Obeid family.
Hermitage sits on an idyllic stretch of the original Diggers Rest vineyard, surrounded by the gently undulating plains and valleys that have always created excellent conditions for producing elegant wines.
