Can you accommodate groups?. Yes. Groups of 6 or more people can be accommodated by booking multiple cottages – thus providing ample sleeping configurations and the comfort and amenity of multiple bathrooms. We can accommodate upto 15 people in our four = 2 x 2 bedroom and 2 x 1 bedroom cottages. Note: Our two bedroom cottages accommodate a strict maximum of 5 people (including children/infants).
We don’t want to drive - Are there transport options available ? Public transport - VLINE bus and trains - travel into the region from Melbourne – check the VLINE website for schedules (from Melbourne Southern Cross Station to Colac or Apollo Bay). It may be possible to arrange a ‘private tour/driver’ service. Ask us for contact details. However, most guests self drive (either own vehicle or hire vehicle) as this is the most economical and easiest way to access the farm and visit nearby scenic attractions.
