The Burrow at Wombat Bend

A beautiful peaceful evening at Wombat Bend
1 of 29A beautiful peaceful evening at Wombat Bend
Private Room , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 2
Dixons Creek, Yarra Glen, Yarra Valley, Victoria
The Burrow is a beautifully designed mudbrick and cedar retreat, offering self contained B&B accommodation in a purely natural Australian landscape. In the heartland of Melbourne's Yarra Valley, it's just one hour from the CBD or the Airport, and only ten minutes from Yarra Glen.

Set beside a shady billabong, a paradise for the resident birdlife, this is a tranquil retreat for the couple seeking privacy and relaxation. In the heart of the Yarra Valley, you won't be short of things to do and places to go. But most of all, you'll pocket a wealth of take home memories of a close encounter with Nature, in a purely Australian setting that guarantees every comfort, perfect privacy and absolute quietude. And if you are seeking a writer's retreat, or a photographer's inspiration, you have just found it.

About the neighbourhood
The Yarra Valley is a region of rolling hills, forests, vineyards and farms, and towns both small and large, all set in the wide valley of the Yarra River that flows down from the Great Dividing Range. From quaint Warburton at its head all the way to the neighbouring Dandenong Ranges, there's a naturalness still to be experienced in a world that is rapidly losing touch with nature. There's great accommodation to be found at every level, and a warm welcome is guaranteed wherever you choose to put your head. We are proud of our region and love to share it with new- and old-comers alike. Come and see it for yourself.
Getting around
If you have your own transport (car) there is no limit to the places you can readily explore. We are well supplied with maps and guides to all attractions. There are also some excellent tour guides who will tailor a day tour to meet your interests, enabling even the shortest amount of time to be fully maximised.
