The space

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.

Guest access

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 neighbourhood

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.

Getting around

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.

Well situated farmhouse location and the house is a bit of a nostalgic time capsule. Clean and spacious. Not much in the way of local dinner eateries so highly recommend stocking up on food in Timboon or Apollo Bay before you arrive if you are staying a while.

This retreat is amazing. The views are glorious. The house is quaint and cosy, and very well maintained, including the beautiful garden. Seeing the farm animals and wildlife was a highlight for the kids, and the view of The Milky Way was awesome for the adults. It was very well located for sight seeing (by car) around the Otways. A very comfortable, memorable and relaxing stay. Glenn was a superb host. Outstanding! Look no further.

What a wonderful experience and place! The view was spectacular. My kids loved every moment staying here. Sight seeing was a breeze and close by from Glenn's place. Visiting the Redwoods, 12 Apostles, Port Campbell, The grotto, Loch Ard Gorge, Moonlight heads was all nearby and the drive on the great ocean road was is truly amazing. We got to meet Glenn in person and what can I say, what wonderful friendly cheerful guy. Highly recommended. Thank You Glenn.

Loved the beautiful property. The old shabby chic house was accessible once we knew where we were going but the map attached was slightly incorrect so we got a bit lost at first. A local helped us find the spot quickly and it was a great time away. Lots of lovely spots to visit close by. We had so many things to do - there was a map with local spots to visit and brochures in the kitchen. We visited a local cheesery (yum!), chocolate shop (double yum!), berry farm, and the 12 apostles at sunrise. Beautiful! The dogs loved the sheep they could see through the fence and also lived sitting by the fireplace. Tip: bring your own tea, coffee, long life milk, and soap/shampoo. Big fridge if you wanted to cook too. Had a wonderful time. Never got to meet you but thanks heaps glenn!

Hi Annalise, thankyou for your valued feedback. Glad you you had a good time but you referred to an inaccurate map that was supplied. I would like to rectify this situation; can you please let me know where the map was provided so I can arrange changes, cheers, Glenn

His place had really beautiful scenic views, and though it's secluded, it's the perfect place to get away from it all! The house accommodates many and is a very cosy place to stay, especially with the fireplace where you can bundle up in the cold. The host is very friendly and reachable so would definitely come back here in the future!

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.
