Camelot Tower and Penthouse is in a class of its own. Winner of Victoria's most prestigious award in building excellence from the Australian Institute of Building.

The most romantic setting with a million dollar view of Port Phillip Bay, Melbourne city lights on an enchanted mountain, with attractions minutes away in any direction. The heart of the beautiful Dandenong Ranges can be your secret getaway, your base for exploring the many sights, attractions and bush tracks leading into the Doongalla Forest from the Penthouse Gardens. Be prepared to see kangaroos, wallabies and even deer passing through the property early in the mornings and evenings.

A Camelot Tower and Penthouse is craftsman built offering luxurious accommodation in a unique and private setting. Attention to detail is obvious throughout and yours to enjoy.

Quality fittings and furnishings are apparent within all of these superb establishments. Guests will enjoy breakfast delivered if required, and a well stocked fridge and pantry, and relax in their own king size full length oval spa bath for two.

Among the many unique features of the property is an 18th century Geisha hut assembled over the spa bath in the Camelot Tower and a magnificent French Bed, one of the finest hand-sculptured beds in Australia, making it a unique feature in the Sandstone Cottage.

The Penthouse features a wide custom-built spiral staircase built around a tree. Within a 45 minute drive from Melbourne city centre and easily accessed via public transport.

The many restaurants including SkyHigh and craft shops of Olinda are only an eight minute walk away and only a further ten minutes to the National Rhododendron Gardens, the challenging Olinda Golf Course and the RJ Hamer Arboretum, take a picnic basket and enjoy the view.
