    Nestled in the Hoddle hills with fabulous views over the ever changing coastline, this property is a fifteen minute drive to the closest beachs at Waratah Bay or Sandy Point.  They are just two of many beautiful beaches along this quiet, pristine coastline, where you can swim, walk on the rocks, fish or boat . The magnificent Wilson's Promontory National Park entrance is a twenty minute drive and a further twenty minutes drive gets you to Tidal River in the heart of the park. "The Prom" is a hiker's paradise - full of wildlife, beaches and breathtaking scenery.

    Further inland you can explore many small townships each with their own distinctive character offering restaurants, galleries, museums, golf courses and much of interest to tourists.  The spectacular Grand Ridge Road winds through the Strzelecki Ranges and remnants of the rain forest have been protected inside the Tarra-Bulga National Park and the Mount Worth State Park.
