Wildwood Retreat

Address: 645 Pennyroyal Valley Road, Pennyroyal, Victoria 3235

Phone: 03 5236 3346  


Hidden in 20 hectares of rainforest in the Otway Ranges, beside the Pennyroyal creek, Wildwood Retreat is dedicated to the principles of living, learning and leisure.

It is the ideal environment for groups to come together. This is a place where mobile phones are out of range, and nothing but birdsong and the sound of the creek will interrupt your group.

Wildwood Retreat sleeps 28 in up market bunkhouse accommodation, and an additional four in a private cabin. Meet in the lodge, where you can watch the parrots and kookaburras, snuggle up on the comfy couches next to the open fireplace, and select a book from the library, or explore the Otway Ranges on one of the many walking tracks just down the road.

Less than two hours drive from Melbourne city and Melbourne airport, and just 20 minutes from Lorne, Wildwood retreat can be accessed via the picturesque Great Ocean Road or via the inland Geelong - Colac Highway.
