Great Ocean Ecolodge, Australia
Perfectly positioned along the Great Ocean Road just three hours from Melbourne, Great Ocean Ecolodge is set in pristine bushland with access to secluded beaches, lush rainforests, steep cliffs and the spectacular Cape Otway coastline. Established by the Conservation Ecology Centre, this Award-Winning ecolodge provides a luxurious experience without leaving a large envionmental footprint. The entire lodge is solar powered and ecologically responsible - your shower water is rainwater warmed by the sun, pure and simple! All profits are channelled back into wildlife conservation and you can even venture into the native bush with the research team to help save endangered species.
Set in 165 acres, with spectacular views over the Otway Ranges, you're free to explore the grounds via carefully designed walking tracks whilst keeping an eye out for kangaroos, koalas and a great variety of birdlife. Be sure to join the dusk nature walk to fully appreciate the mesmerising wildlife on your doorstep, including the endangered Tiger Quoll - Australia's largest carnivorous marsupial.
Great Ocean Ecolodge
With just five guest rooms, all with garden views and rustic charm, your stay at Great Ocean Ecolodge will be unique and personal. Each room is private, light-filled and peaceful with its own collection of timeless antiques and Australian artwork. The highlight of your stay has to be watching kangaroos grazing peacefully outside your bedroom window! Dining is communal which is great for sharing experiences and receiving suggestions for the next day's activity. The meals are imaginative, delicious and use produce grown in the kitchen garden.
From the lodge, you can explore the Great Ocean Walk (as much of the stunning 104km trail as you feel able!), or opt for the more manageable 800m circuit of Maits Rest, indulge in a champagne picnic, visit the Otway Lighthouse and kayak with seals. Or, you can simply relax and enjoy a massage in the privacy of your room or in the dappled light of a secluded clearing in the bush.
