About the property

Nestled amongst the rolling pastures of Yea in regional Victoria, Wood Duck Cottage offers the perfect sanctuary from the hustle and bustle of city life. This little property is steeped in history – the main house was built in 1924 and the cottage garden is delightful.

Built in 1924, this family-owned original homestead, shearing shed and bunk house have been lovingly restored over many years and carefully decorated to reflect the history, charm and beauty of the surrounding area. Packed to the rafters with character, each property at Wood Duck Cottage has been completely renovated with modern comforts without losing any of its unique personality. High ceilings and a huge living area make this an ideal family getaway.

There is just so much to do around the unpretentious country homestead and you’re spoilt for choice in the local town which has wonderful restaurants and services.

Choose from: The cottage, the bunk house or the main homestead depending on your needs.

Things to do on the property

During the day enjoy the farm, have a dig in the vegetable garden, enjoy a walk in the country, feed the horse, settle down in front of our outdoor fire or enjoy exploring the local town and its great hotels with restaurants. At night, come home to your country haven and relax in front of the fire while you enjoy a glass of locally sourced wine.

Things to do around Yea.

Yea is a charming town with a warm, friendly community. During the day take a stroll around the quaint township to admire the historic buildings still in use by local businesses, pubs and restaurants. Visit the Yea Wetlands which abound with native flora and fauna, or take a short drive to the wineries of the nearby Yarra Valley.

Outdoor activities

For a more energetic weekend getaway in Victoria, play tennis at the Yea tennis courts or golf at the local golf club. Go bushwalking in the Kinglake National Park or visit the Murrindindi website for adventure activities like abseiling, horse riding and water sports on nearby Lake Eildon.

There are golf and tennis facilities in town and lots of community activities during the week.

Horse riding lessons and trail riding are just down the road at Yea Riding School. Pay $20 per hour for a riding lesson or take a trail ride for two hours for $35 per hour. Children and adults are welcome. Book with Sarah at the Yea Riding School.

Foodie paradise

The Farmers Market at the old railway comes alive on the first Saturday of each where you can purchase the divine local produce. There are some lovely places to eat out, with enough variety to satisfy all taste buds. There are plenty of great pubs around if you feel like a hearty pub meal or want to relax and have a drink.
