Woodlands Rainforest Retreat Details 

Overview

Hidden in the spectacular rainforest of the Black Spur, in the mountains on the edge of Victoria’s famous Yarra Valley, is one of Australia’s leading boutique accommodation retreats and the ultimate secret hideaway for couples.
At Woodlands Rainforest Retreat we provide a rare combination of genuine privacy, indulgent luxury and nature based experience in a secluded temperate rainforest setting.
The architect designed self-contained cottages are situated in rainforest remnant on 16 hectares of native forest, overlooking the fern gullies of Hermitage Creek near the tiny hamlet of Narbethong.
Just over the Black Spur, 80 km NE of Melbourne, Woodlands is beautifully positioned on the edge of Victoria’s famous Yarra Valley and is just 30 minutes drive from the cross country ski trails of Lake Mountain and the boating and fishing waterways of Lake Eildon, Victoria’s second largest body of water (after Port Phillip Bay).
Woodlands Rainforest Retreat has been designed and built to exceed your expectations.
Each cottage is hidden in its own separate enclave within the rainforest, offering complete seclusion, both from each other and the outside world. They are completely out of sight, overlooking beautiful fern gullies and a private bushland lake, with the sound of the babbling Hermitage Creek in the background.
There are no neighbours – only the wildlife, including riotous parrots and cockatoos, kookaburras, wombats, wallabies, echidnas and platypus (if you look and listen very carefully). You can enjoy a unique part of Australia, a temperate rainforest with native flora and fauna featuring magnificent wildlife.

Hidden in the Rainforest

They are completely out of sight, overlooking beautiful fern gullies and a private bushland lake, with the sound of the babbling Hermitage Creek in the background.

Amazing Wildlife

You can enjoy a unique part of Australia, a temperate rainforest with native flora and fauna featuring magnificent wildlife.

Scenic Outdoor Decking
All of these wonders can be enjoyed from the large elevated deck of each cottage. Or through the floor to ceiling windows that frame the wonderful backdrop. Woodlands offers a rare opportunity for guests to enjoy this magnificent environment without compromising on comfort, luxury or the integrity of the natural environment.

Perfect Hideaway
The cottages act as a perfect “hide” – protecting the rainforest from human interference while allowing people to enjoy the beauty of the forest, without the need to venture out into “the wild”.

Rainforest Furniture
The superbly designed cottages are split-level open plan with huge windows that open on to a wallpaper of living forest. Crafted from local materials, polished mountain ash floorboards, myrtle beech benches and radially sawn yellow stringybark exterior cladding, the cottages blend into the surrounding bush so perfectly that they seem part of the rainforest furniture.

Fully equipped
They each have large brick open fireplaces, central heating & cooling, fully equipped kitchens, king beds, full surround sound systems with DVD, video and CD players for your enjoyment where you will be topped up with wood for a cosy evening fire (winter months’ outside fire restriction only).

Sunken Spa
Music is even piped into the spectacular glass walled spa room. The huge oval therapeutic quality spa with high pressure air blower and heated water jets that provide a true aquatic massage, invites total relaxation. The spa is sunken into a heated tiled floor and sits before a bi-fold glass wall that opens onto the large deck overlooking the fern gully. This truly is luxury in the wild…
