About this listing
The retreat offers a genuine experience of 1950's farmhouse living with wood fire and retro cosiness. Also the retreat provides commanding views of the Shipwreck Coast.
For a modest extra charge you can have your own guided tour to see the horses and sheep.
We are located halfway along the Great Ocean Ocean Road and 30 minutes drive from the 12 Apostles. For more photos and information search for the Wombalano Country Retreat website.
Wombalano Country Retreat is a spacious 3 bedroom self contained farm house offering accommodation for up to 12 people. The wood fired heater does a great job of making the house cosy. There are also electric blankets and heaters in the bedrooms.
Guests have the farmhouse to themselves and can go for walks around the farm or venture along the nearby Great Ocean Walk.
Interaction with guests
Guests have their privacy respected but have contact with the owner.
The local community has been drawn to Yuulong for the ocean views and access to the natural environment which includes kangaroos, wallabies, echidnas and many birds including the noble Wedge-tailed Eagle.
There is a commuter busline operating on the Great Ocean Road but 99% of guests arrive by car which allows the flexibility to visit the 12 Apostles, Port Campbell, Apollo Bay, Otway Fly/waterfalls and Cape Otway light house all within 60 minutes drive. Lavers Hill is 10 minutes drive away. For good coffee try The Shoppe
Other things to note
Guests are very welcome to bring their pet dogs along with prior notification at no extra charge.. Owners are expected to be responsible with their dogs as Wombalano is a working sheep farm.
Guests are encouraged to relax and enjoy the homely feel of Wombalano. The basic house rules are that guests return all furniture to their original place and ensure dishes are washed, dried and placed back in the cupboard before leaving.

I am a farmer and accommodation provider at Yuulong on the Great Ocean Road in Victoria. I also take a keen interest in the natural environment. I am very lucky to live at Yuulong with its rolling hills and ocean views and enjoy inviting guests into my special part of the world.
I also like to also travel myself and take off somewhere special on this planet at least once a year. In 2014 I was lucky enough to visit Japan and also take a road trip across the Nullarbor and visit Western Australia.
I'm also a keen horse rider.
