Company info

Yering Gorge Cottages opened in 2007. Positioned within the Yering Gorge private nature reserve, and featuring views of the surrounding Christmas Hills and Dividing Ranges, guests experience a complete sense of privacy and serenity whilst enjoying the surrounding natural beauty and resident iconic Australian wildlife that roam freely. The property's perfect location on the doorstep to the Yarra Valley makes it ideally suited for those looking to experience the delights of Melbourne's 'food and wine playground' together with the diversity of a range of family orientated activities and attractions during their stay. With its acquisition of Yering Gorge Cottages in July, 2013, The Eastern Golf Club recognised that the exceptional nature-based tourism experiences were a key influence in guests' decision to stay and wanted to ensure the integrity of the destination experience was retained. Whilst creating a unique destination and tourism experience within the Yarra Valley, Yering Gorge Cottages remains as a stand-alone tourism experience.
