Woodlands Rainforest Retreat provide a rare combination of genuine privacy, indulgent luxury and nature based experience in a secluded temperate rainforest setting.

The architect designed self-contained cottages are situated in rainforest remnant on 16 hectares of native forest, overlooking the fern gullies of Hermitage Creek near the tiny hamlet of Narbethong.

Just over the Black Spur, 80 kilometres north east of Melbourne, Woodlands is beautifully positioned on the edge of Victoria’s famous Yarra Valley. Woodlands is just a further 30 minutes drive from the cross country ski trails of Lake Mountain and the boating and fishing waterways of Lake Eildon, Victoria’s second largest body of water (after Port Phillip Bay).

Woodlands Rainforest Retreat has been designed and built to exceed your expectations. Each cottage is hidden in its own separate enclave within the rainforest, offering complete seclusion, both from each other and the outside world. They are completely out of sight, overlooking beautiful fern gullies and a private bushland lake, with the sound of the babbling Hermitage Creek in the background.

There are no neighbours – only the wildlife. You can enjoy a unique part of Australia, a temperate rainforest with native flora and fauna featuring magnificent wildlife.
