Overview

About the property

The Nature Lodge is open plan style accommodation, with lounge, kitchen and dining areas and a bedroom downstairs with two more bedrooms on a mezzanine level - ideal for groups or families! The Lodge is tucked away on our farm, it has a great private BBQ area and a huge dining table. Hang out around the open fire place, play the XBOX, listen to music, choose from over 100 DVD titles or walk around the 31 acre organic farm.

Close to all the tourism highlights of the Otways. Waterfalls and Lakes just up the road and Beaches, cafes and Apollo Bay shopping just a short drive away! Forrest is fast becoming home to many mountain bike tracks. There is something for everyone challenging, just enough to get a bit of a sweat up or serne and peaceful. Take it at your pace.

Barramunga sits high atop Victoria's Otway Ranges and is endowed with some of the most magestic views of the Otways. It's here that you'll be able to experience some real Otway's hinterland magic. Towering gum trees, Otways forest, dense fern gullies and of course mystical Lake Elizabeth where you can get up close and personal to that almost mythical creature - the platypus! - Top of the Otways is set on a magnificent 31 acre farm, home to our sheep, lambs, chooks and piggies. Many of our animals are children-friendly if your kids want to feed them with us or play with them. The rear of the property provides walking access to the delightful Otway Forest Park Native birds abound, kangaroos, echidnas and koalas occasionally visit.

Took my money without providing service

  • 1 of 5

DONT STAY HERE. The owners took my money after not 'accepting' the booking on stayz, which generated an automated email telling me my booking wouldn't be going ahead so u booked elsewhere. Terrible service.

Peaceful and relaxing location

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time staying here at the Nature Lodge, and it seems to be getting better and better. We have 4 children which are older now, and space again wasn't an issue. We were comfortable and relaxed . We stayed here this summer for 8 days and it was a great base for us to get around and do our sight seeing of the GOR and the surrounding towns etc...Again the peacefulness and tranquility of the location was our favourite aspect of staying here. We loved having a cuppa and watching the sunset with the beautiful views of the Otways in our backyard. We thankyou Josh and Celine for the hospitality and making us feel so welcome ...especially the kids whom grew very fond of Josh . We hope to see you guys soon.

Far from the maddening crowd

  • 5 of 5

We spent several days using top of the otways as our base for riding the trails and dropping down to the beach for a swim. The place was basic but value for money.

Nice place to stay

Very nice place, cosy house and beautiful surroundings. Kids loved bush walks in the rain and friendly pet sheeps. We'll come back for sure.

Excellent winter retreat!

  • 5 of 5

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay here!

Excellent location - right in heart of rainforest. Peaceful but close enough to town for a quick trip to the brewery for a meal.
