About Donna Watson
We moved here to Wattle Bank from Melbourne because we wanted to get out of the hustle & bustle of the city and we've always had a dream of owning a bit of property. We've holidayed at Inverloch many times so we knew the area quite well. We really love it here because it's quiet and peaceful but also close enough to Inverloch & Wonthaggi so everything we need is only a few minutes drive away.
Donna Watson purchased this Barn in 2016
Why Donna Watson chose Wattle Bank
We liked this property straight away because of it's location and proximity to everything. There's so much to see and do around here and many beautiful beaches close by so there is never a shortage of things to do. It's the perfect location to live or just get away for a few days to relax or explore.
What makes this Barn unique
Quiet and peaceful, lots of local attractions close by including Philip Island, Wilsons Prom, wineries, cafe's, shops, markets, beaches. Or you can just stay here and be entertained by our gorgeous farm animals. Get up close and personal with our friendly Dexter cows, alpaca's, cheeky goat and happy chickens.

We had an amazing stay at Wattle bank. Donna was a great host and the property suited us perfectly. Our 3YO loved the animals and we loved the peace and quiet and wood fired stove. Our dog also had a blast in a secure area where she found around. The location was also great only 10 minutes into the beaches and cafes of Inverloch and 5 minutes from a great family friendly winery. We’ll definitely go back
Thanks Amy, it was great having you guys stay with us - so glad you all enjoyed it & hope to see you again one day.

Escape the city life
Absolutely beautiful place to stay and lovely people. Clean, cosy and had everything we needed. The kids of all ages and sizes loved feeding the farm animals. Would definitely come back again in a heart beat.
Thanks so much Rebecca & family, it was really lovely having you all stay with us & you're welcome back any time. Your boys are so well behaved & respectful of the animals which was so nice to see.

Amazing farm stay with all the creature comforts. The extra touches are really appreciated. The hosts are so lovely and kind. The property is very clean and has everything you could possibly need. I also couldn't believe my 10month old slept in every day while we were there as it is just so relaxing.
Its also very close to everything. We are definitely coming back!! Thank you for letting us bring our animals.
Thank you so much for your lovely review Aggie, you were lovely guests & are welcome back anytime. Your animals were very well behaved & you left everything very clean - thank you!

Nothing beats fresh country air!
We loved our stay at Wattle Bank - 2 adults, 1 kid and a dog. The barn was even better in person and Donna and Graham provided everything we would need. This is a lovely rural property just 15-20mins to the beautiful Inverloch/Cape Paterson beaches. Best of both worlds. I loved waking to the sounds of the farm animals. I can’t wait to recommend it to my friends. Thanks Donna, Graham and Steph.
Wow, thanks so much for your lovely comments - it was a pleasure to meet you & have you stay with us. Glad you enjoyed it & hope to see you again some day.
