Review


Self-contained, seven-bedroom, four-bathroom house in a large, picturesque garden on 30 acres with views of the Yarra Valley. The home is specifically designed and equipped for people with disabilities and ideal for couples, small groups or families.

This unedited guest review appeared online describing Hazelwood beautifully. 

"Clean, comfortable and well set up, with everything you might need at hand. Great for families and large groups and well serviced for its size with several bathrooms, a split system as well as a wood fire to sit around in the colder months.

There's a big dining table for sharing meals, playing board games (provided) or admiring the diverse bird life that is perpetually adorning the front garden. There's plenty of room to spread out and a fabulous indoor/outdoor room with a table tennis table and kids play area. The pianola was a source of endless joy for the whole family... Despite boasting all these wonderful features, the cottage is entirely unpretentious and this makes it easy to completely relax with the kids about.

Of further note is disabled access with the bathrooms downstairs appropriate for those with wheelchairs/requiring additional support. The owners have also very generously made some mobility aids available in a shed, should guests require these.

The property is situated on 30 glorious acres with some lovely nature walks and beautiful gardens. Our children were mesmerised by the 2 beautiful dams - you can catch yabbies in the lower one. There are cows, goats and donkeys on the property. We really enjoyed feeding, patting and brushing the donkeys and they were very friendly.

Although one could quite pleasantly pass the time in and around the cottage, Warburton has plenty to offer should you wish to venture out and explore. The township has several decent eateries. We enjoyed Warburton Pantry and Cog Bike Cafe - where you can hire a bike and enjoy a leisurely ride along the Lilydale-Warburton rail trail should the mood strike you. Worth viewing nearby is Boinga Bob's unique treehouse temple which has reportedly been assembled with no nails. The river walk is lovely and has playgrounds and BBQ's at several points. Overall this is a beautiful place to make lasting family memories and completely unwind. We were reluctant to leave and look forward to future visits." - LINA D.

Warburton

The endless forests are the foundation of this timber town with gold mining adding to that history. 
Day trippers from Melbourne now prop up a tourist industry with numerous caf├ęs and a few excellent restaurants.  There's a variety of shops to explore including an op shop or two, cinema and galleries, supermarket and tourist information centre.  

Mt Donna buang

The Rainforest Gallery half way up this iconic mountain is a must see. On a clear day the view from the tower at the top is spectacular. For a few months in winter there's enough snow to build  snow men and ride toboggans. Challenging hiking tracks up the mountain get used by people training for Nepalese treks. A trail follows an old aqueduct around the mountain and can be accessed from the top of the property on foot. 

Yarra River

With swimming holes dotted along the river there's plenty of room for half the township on warm summer days.

Let us know beforehand and we'll lend you a car tube to float down the river or bring a kayak. There's a few fish about and Upper Yarra Dam at the head of the river has wonderful places for picnics, photography and walking.
