In the early morning and evening time there are deers, kangaroos and wallabies passing through the property. We are also within walking distance of shops and restaurants. In fact, it is only a walking distance of 6 minutes to 8 delightful restaurants and craft shops in Olinda, and a further 10 minutes to the National Rhododendron Gardens and the challenging Olinda Golf Course. Also in close proximity are several fantastic picnic areas, including our own beautiful established gardens - the perfect place to relax with a gourmet hamper.
You may want to use this hideaway as your base for an exploration of the Yarra Valley wineries or a trip through the mountains on the famous Puffing Billy steam train and the delightful restaurant carriages.
