  • Hi I know this is a weird question but is there a just a couch in the lounge room or some arm chairs as well

    Hi All questions are welcome. In the lounge there is a couch (a futon that folds down to a bed), typically used as a couch. There are no arm chairs. Kind regards Helen

Our property enables guests to experience nature while being a short drive to shops or beach. An ability to observe animals in their natural environment such as koalas, emus, kangaroos, wallabies, water birds and bush birds (amazing dawn chorus). The cottage is solar powered making it the perfect eco-holiday. The cottage has a stove, fridge, heater, TV, laundry facilities etc....The large undercover deck is perfect to enjoy views of the property or share a meal.

Our family enjoy spending time at Bridgewater Beach, a very expansive beach that is great for swimming and strolling (as far as the eye can see). The seal colony there is also great to experience by boat or walk. The petrified forest on the cliff top is also a short drive away with incredible sunsets - seeing the sun sink into the ocean.

Very quiet space to relax away from traffic and demands of life. A place to reconnect with nature and enjoy walks. It is very peaceful place in an ever shrinking world. A short drive to the Bridgwater Lakes, Tarragal Caves, Bridgewater Beach, National Parks or in to the Portland township (first permanent European settlement in Victoria). Some guests bring their bikes and cycle out to Bridgewater or into Portland during their stay. Portland has an airport serviced from Melbourne & Mt Gambier and we are happy to transfer to the cottage for free.
