The Burrow at Wombat Bend is a beautifully designed mud brick and cedar cottage offering self-contained accommodation in a quintessential Australian landscape. You’ll find generous breakfast provisions in your cottage on arrival and evening meals made by a local chef can be ordered before your stay.
It’s easy to get to, in Melbourne’s picturesque Yarra Valley, just an hour’s drive from Melbourne or the Airport, and only ten minutes from Yarra Glen. Set beside a shady billabong, the property is a paradise for the resident wildlife, making it a tranquil retreat for nature lovers, a couple, or solo travellers after some peace and relaxation.
If you want to see the region, you’re right in the heart of the Yarra Valley, a 5-minutes drive from wineries, cellar doors, restaurants, shops, galleries, artists’ studios, gardens, and amazing hikes/walks. And back at the property, after a day’s exploring, you can sit back and enjoy a close encounter with the birds, and wildlife, surrounded by nature, in a purely Australian setting.
Watch the sunset over the billabong, a glass of wine beside you; toast some marshmallows by the fire pit, as you listen to the soothing frog song, close to nature and the stars, and a million miles from stress.
For those seeking a writer’s retreat, or a photographer’s inspiration, they offer affordable longer stay packages.
