Welcome to ‘The Pill Factory’ at Bundanoon – a historic building accommodating upto 36 people. Perfect for family gatherings, functions and groups of friends. Located in the heart of Bundanoon, in the beautiful Southern Highlands of NSW.
The Pill Factory is a place for family, friends and groups to come together.
It began life as the Golden Cross Pill Factory back in the 1800s, going on to have many different careers before eventually falling into disrepair.
Now it has been lovingly brought back to life to provide accommodation for groups of up to 36 people.
The 36 seater dining room can be extended into the adjacent sitting room to seat up to 50 people, so let the banquet begin.
There are 4 living areas throughout the factory so you can definitely get a break from good old Uncle Harry when you need to.
Get away with your closest to enjoy the private bar and games room, maybe challenge them to a little pool competition to get the blood pumping.
