Welcome to Wanawong Retreat, where you are offered beautiful and comfortable accommodation while maintaining the ethos of value for money. Wanawong Retreat is well situated just 12 minutes south of Colac, next to Otway Estate Winery & Brewery, on the Colac-Lavers Hill Rd. It is a beautiful drive through the hinterland from the Great Ocean Road and Apollo Bay.

Wanawong Retreat is waiting to surround you with country luxury, tranquil privacy and captivating views over the Otways. You are the only guests, not another house in sight for miles.

The apartment is set in a spectacular garden with uninterrupted views over farmland (often with kangaroos). The award winning garden has featured in several magazines and always has a great display of rare and beautiful trees and plants.

The spacious queen size bedroom also has wonderful views. From your bed you can watch the birds in the bird baths and the clouds going by.

The generous lounge is well set up with television, DVD and CD and Wi-Fi for your entertainment, when you just want to stay in and relax. With plenty of sofas, cosy wood fire and air-conditioning, you will be very comfortable. With floor to ceiling windows, the rooms are light and bright. Outside, the balcony has seating for a large family, perfect for enjoying a meal in the country air.

Wanawong Retreat believe in stepping lightly on the earth, so there are solar panels for electricity and hot water, and where rainwater is captured. The organic vegetable and orchards are tastefully netted (due to the abundant birdlife) and keep the property supplied all year. Guests love the home grown seasonal fruit and jams are provided.

Wanawong is an idyllic setting for wedding ceremonies with the garden providing a charming backdrop for photographs.
