About the property

The Great Ocean Rd shack is situated in picturesque Peterborough which is right dab smack in the middle of some of the most spectacular scenery you will ever see. The shack sits on a river front property so you can look out over the water as you dine on your tea. The main beach is a 5min leisurely stroll along the riverbank and features stunning rock pools for swimming on hot days. Scenery all within 10mins drive include the gorgeous Bay Of Islands, The Grotto, London Bridge, The Arch and Port Campbell Jetty. A little further away but still close you can see the Twelve Apostles and Melba Gully (rainforest) where you can view glow worms on a damp night (a magical sight). Locally take in the breathtaking views along the scenic walk which includes the Bay of Martyrs, Hallidale Point, Worm Bay, the Rock Pools and a spectacular cliff top 9 hole golf course. Short driving distances to the townships of Port Campbell, Timboon and Warrnambool ensure plenty of shopping choices. The shack itself is fully contained including all linen. It can sleep up to 8 people, has 2 bedrooms, bathroom, laundry, lounge, dining room, kitchen and fenced verandah. It is pet friendly. A perfect destination for families or couples who are looking for a simple, quiet getaway or looking to explore the great outdoors - secluded and unspoilt beaches, fishing, swimming, diving, snorkeling, surfing, walking, playgrounds, golf and tennis ensure a fantastic time is had by all.

Nice little shack in an awesome location, if your into fishing, bird watching, photography or star gazing this is the place for you and its just down the road from the Bay of Martyrs & Bay of Islands which I think are the best parts of the coastline. Its a bit rough around the edges but if you want a nice, clean basic place to stay then this is the place & there is heaps of space for kids to run around out the back. I would stay here again.

Owner's Response: Thank you Dean for your lovely review. I totally agree with you that the shack is in a great location and that it is a basic accommodation but that is one of the things I love about it. It's not 5 star and is priced accordingly but at the same time you don't feel like you can't relax because you might make a mark on something or that your kids can't move for fear of damaging something. You can really kick back and relax in a very laid back environment there. Regards Deb

I loved the shack, reminded me of my mum and dads place back in Tassie. Took me back to my younger days, no Tv just the outdoors to explore. Ideally situated to explore all the GOR's many highlights.
