We love this haven you have created

"We heard and saw real wildlife from this 'Cockatoos Nest'. Wombats grunting, possums growling and who knows what scurrying and rustling, but us safe in this luxurious apartment in the wilderness."

Woodlands Rainforest Retreat in the beautiful Yarra Valley allows you to escape to your own luxury cottage, hidden in the sanctuary of a towering mountain rainforest and woodland. Indulge in sunken spas and immerse yourself in the fragrance of purity. Woodlands Rainforest Retreat offers the ultimate in decadence.

Woodlands is a luxurious couples retreat providing romance and privacy in self-contained Rainforest Cottages, overlooking fern gullies and a crystal clear creek hidden in a woodland rainforest. 

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 wombats, wallabies, echidnas and platypus (if you listen very carefully). Enjoy a unique part of Australia, a temperate rainforest with native flora and fauna featuring magnificent birdlife. All of these wonders can be enjoyed from the huge elevated deck of each bungalow, or through the floor to ceiling windows that frame the wonderful backdrop.

Designed by local architect David Underwood, the Rainforest Cottages are split level and open plan, with huge windows that look out at a wallpaper of living forest. Crafted from local materials - polished mountain ash floorboards, recycled myrtle beech benches and radially sawn yellow stringybark exterior cladding, the cottages blend into the surrounding bush so perfectly that they seem part of the rainforest furniture. They have large brick open fireplaces, central heating and cooling, fully equipped kitchens, king beds, full surround sound systems with DVD and CD players.

The most significant feature of the cottages is the glass walled spa room. The huge oval therapeutic quality spa, with high pressure air blower and heated water jets that provide a true aquatic massage, invites total relaxation. The spa is sunken into a heated tiled floor and sits before glass doors that open onto the large deck overlooking the fern gully. This creates a truly indoor/outdoor feel, enhancing the nature based experience.

  • Here we are back again and you have managed again to wow us. On our first visit the luxury indoors and the closeness to nature outdoors totally inspired us. Today, the new gift pack has done it again - it is sensational, the smell of the bath oil and texture of the body cream just fantastic - what's next guys? We can hardly wait.

    - DON & JULIE
  • The special way you have set up the bungalow, the luxury extras and attention to detail has made us feel loved and nurtured. It is such a contrast to the limited service and care one so often experiences in life in the 21st century.

    - EVE & DAVID
  • We have stayed at some very special places around the world but this spa in this rainforest on this night - wow! We will be back!

    - ELIZABETH & ROB
  • We love this haven you have created. We heard and saw real wildlife from this 'Cockatoos Nest'. Wombats grunting, possums growling and who knows what scurrying and rustling, but us safe in this luxurious apartment in the wilderness.

Lovebird's View

We stayed in the Laughing Ducks Cottage. The absolute highlight was the privacy and seclusion of our cottage. Once the open fire was blazing, we enjoyed cosy nights in, making good use of the deep-set spa.
