Sue & Bill and our Airedale family
Our property, Wombat Bend, is a special place. It is a natural sanctuary that offers our guests a retreat from stress and 'busyness', a chance to step back and connect with nature. The Burrow is your own private space within Wombat Bend, calm, quiet, comfort-driven and filled with peace. You'll watch the light change over the billabong, hear the frog chorus at night, watch the birds go about their lives, and breathe fresh clean air. And from the moment you arrive, you won't miss the rest of the world one little bit. You just won't want to leave.
We're a couple devoted to the world of nature ... our lives focus on managing a sustainable life style that we can share with like-minded guests. We value our wildlife highly, and protect the habitats that we have created within Wombat Bend; our bird register lists over 100 species, resident and visiting; we have numerous marsupials (wombats, possums, gliders), and nine species of microbats; our frog population is amongst the highest recorded for the Yarra Valley. Our passion extends to a deep understanding of Australia's flora, and the many eco-zones across our continent. We try to live lightly and carefully in all we do, and in what we create. We see ourselves as custodians, with a responsibility to care for our planet .... and it is wonderful to know that our guests share the same values. It is a privilege to offer our sanctuary to others to enjoy.
The Burrow at Wombat Bend is central to everything that makes the Yarra Valley the world famous destination that it is. Our wineries and cellar doors, restaurants and farmers markets are amongst the best in the world, and the natural environment that surrounds you at every turn will refresh your spirit and your soul. Our world class Healesville Sanctuary is the go-to destination for Australia's wildlife, not to be missed. Close up encounters with wombats, koalas, kangaroos, platypus, Tasmanian Devils and all manner of glorious birds will deliver memories for a lifetime. Exciting galleries present sculpture, painting, pottery and ceramics, glass and fine jewellery; artisan markets abound in which you can purchase unique beautiful handcrafted treasures. Indigenous art is presented in local galleries for viewing and purchase. For the nature lover, bush walks and skiing, wildlife tours, gardens, lakes and forest parks are easily accessed, along with horse riding and mountain bike riding & canoeing for the active outdoor person. Most of all, you will be immersed in a world that is distant from busy cities and highly pressured life styles. You'll breathe again.
