The Woodlands Experience
Woodlands Rainforest Retreat is an indulgent short break destination for adult couples, a hideaway retreat offering a rare combination of genuine privacy, indulgent luxury and nature based experience in a truly secluded temperate rainforest just over the Black Spur in the Great Dividing Range. Little more than an hour from Melbourne, the four architect designed self contained cottages are situated in rainforest remnant on 16 hectares of native forest. Each in their own private enclave, they overlook the fern gullies of the Hermitage Creek.
Services and Dining
Woodlands has a rare offer for its guests: the joy of being secluded in a magnificent rainforest with a front row seat to natural wonders, where an echidna may amble along the forest floor, a wallaby could be nibbling on fern fronds at the window, or a pair of platypus are basking in the sun on the bushland lake. There is always a chorus of native birds eager to dine with guests on the decking or cheeky possums curious to peak in the window at dusk.
Our fully accredited massage therapists can provide two aromatherapy relaxation massages simultaneously for you in the comfort of your cottage. These couples’ massages have proved a real winner with Woodlands’ guests for many years now.
You probably won’t want to leave your cottage once you have arrived. Fireside dining in winter and alfresco dining on the deck in the warmer months are very popular. We can even offer fully prepared quality chef prepared meals, delivered to your cottage. *Please note that Chef-prepared three course meals are temporarily unavailable until further notice. Please select from our range of gourmet hampers still available.
