Find your freedom at The Flying Duck Orchid.
Inspired by Anglesea’s Caleana major orchid. A rare Australian bloom that only grows in the wild. Shaped like a tiny duck. Its head held high. Purple wings swept back. As if ready to take flight. That’s the call to freedom. From this boutique retreat. Across from the wildflowers of Anglesea Heath.
