HOW IT ALL BEGAN
It all started with a 100-year-old apple orchard on Shipley Plateau in Australia’s majestic Blue Mountains.
Logan Brae has always been a small family business. Perhaps it’s that unique care and love that helped it survive World War II, the Great Depression, the fires of 1952 and 2019, snow and hail storms and many hard farming lessons along the way.
Over the years, Logan Brae has become a favourite destination for locals and visitors to the Blue Mountains. They come to enjoy the fresh apples, apple juices and apple pies while soaking up the history, ambience and stunning views.
It’s not unusual for our customers to share stories of their visits to the orchard up to 70 years ago, and are now bringing the next generation of their families along.
Today, Logan Brae is run by Sam Edwards and Asia Upward and their two young daughters, Grace and Isla. Their love for this land and its incredible history has given them the passion and energy to honour the orchards legacy while continuing to transform it into something special.
After the reinvention of their old machinery shed into a luxury farm-stay accommodation became a roaring success, the couple decided to expand the boutique accommodation arm of the business.
When they discovered the incomparable acreage at Mt Kanimbla they knew it would be the perfect addition to the growing Logan Brae legacy.
“Life is about doing what you love and, for us, creating these sought after holiday experiences for guests has been incredibly rewarding. We love styling and renovating. This is definitely just the beginning for us.”
