Beautiful and peaceful surrounds.

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for allowing us to use your beautiful home in the Otways. The location was outstanding and everything in the house was extremely well maintained and very clean. Wonderfully comfortable beds. The whole family particularly enjoyed the effective wood burner, the table tennis (also in excellent condition) and the walks on the property. Great place in a great area.

Only challenge was the steep driveway as our car slid on the coarse gravel when it went up, even on dry days.

Owner's Response: Thank you Sharon for this wonderful review of Barramunga Rainforest Retreat. We are glad you enjoyed the family friendly facilities provided and the location being close to Forrest and the Great Ocean Road/Apollo Bay. We apologise for the steep drive way and have altered our property description to suggest it is most suited to 4wd or Awd or rear wheel drive vehicles if you go right down to the house. We are working on a permanent solution of sealing the drive way. We appreciate your stay with us.

Beautiful rainforest retreat

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely time at this nice clean, comfortable property. In addition we thoroughly enjoyed the little rainforest walks, and found Gary, the owner, incredibly friendly and accommodating and any questions were promptly answered. This was a great place for kids, plenty of yard to run around in and the lovely walks to explore.

Amazing cabin & location!

  • 5 of 5

Staying at Barramunga Rainforest Retreat was an amazingly pleasant experience! Not only is it situated in an absolutely sublime location, (right in the midst of the great otway national forest), the house itself is remarkable. There's heaps to do & explore, with there also being a couple of walking paths on the location, (many intense games of table tennis were had also).

All in all, incredibly impressed with the house & would highly recommend!
