Welcome to our unique property set on an acre with the Otway Forest as your backdrop.
Originally a general store, our house became the local church in the 1920s before being converted into a beautiful Otway retreat for up to four people.
Situated 10 mins from Colac and 20 mins to Forrest, everything the Otways have to offer is right on your doorstep.

For cyclists, the Old Beechy Rail trail runs right past our house and many beautiful waterfalls are nearby.
We have ample parking available.

The space
Our home has two bedrooms; one open plan, spacious bedroom with a queen bed (connected to living room and separated by a bookcase partition) and one light-filled separate bedroom with a double bed. Our home features a large, modern bathroom with a heated towel rail and shower, along with a separate toilet and laundry.

Our kitchen has a gas oven and cooktop, microwave, toaster, kettle, French press and lots of utensils you might need for cooking during your stay.

There is split-system air conditioning/heating available as well as an enclosed wood fire, perfect for winter.

We have a beautiful north-facing deck perfect for entertaining, complete with an outdoor setting. Sit back, unwind and enjoy the picturesque setting and wonderful wildlife that love to visit the property.

Guests will have access to the entire house, however sheds and some cupboards will be locked.

Where you’ll be

Barongarook, Victoria, Australia

The Old Beechy rail trail runs right past our property. The trail is 50km in total and runs from Colac to Beech Forest. From our place it is an easy half hour (5km) bike ride to the Birnham Station picnic ground. Another half an hour will see you arrive at Gellibrand, where you can enjoy a coffee and lunch at the general store. The trail is also great if you just want to walk and take in the fresh air, native bird and wildlife and the breathtaking surrounds of the Otway Forest Park.
