Aquila Eco Lodges is an ultra-stylish nature retreat set amongst the Grampians National Park. It offers a perfect location for weekend retreats, romantic escapes and exploration of the native environment.

At the foot of towering Mount Abrupt, the Lofthouse and Treehouse are set in their own secluded area, surrounded by dense bushland, wildlife and incredible native orchids.

Contemporary, award-winning designs of the four lodges have features including fully equipped kitchens, large windows, red gum floors, modern furniture, 'day-beds' with oversized cushions that are set in huge picture windows, and also scenic patios with gas barbecue.

Aquila Eco Lodges employ latest technologies available to sustainable building, such as use of rain water, solar power, self composting waste treatment, and is widely recognized for its 'low environmental impact' approach to development.

Aquila Eco Lodges sets the benchmark for ecotourism and guests can experience that sustainable living need not compromise luxury.

Covenanted with Trust for Nature and accredited with Advanced Ecotourism Australia, Aquila Eco Lodges is a "must stop" while touring the Great Southern Touring Route.

Come and take in the scenery, enjoy the relaxation or get active on one of the many walks and climbs in the area. Experience the wonders of eco living, and discover that your comfort and enjoyment is enhanced by this sustainable approach to living.
