Charming room, delicious fun dinners and Roos waiting outside your door every morning. Great sharing stories with other adventurous guests with cold beers around the dining table. Very very knowledgable wildlife guides and caretakers of amazing rare Australian species. Would love to return.

This was our first accommodation as part of a six day walk package along the Great Ocean Walk. We stayed here two nights and were wishing it could have been more. The Lodge is beautiful and the grounds are - as you would expect - full of wildlife. As soon as we arrived we went for a 2 hour guided... More

Had a fantastic weekend at the Great Ocean Ecolodge! A clean, comfortable room surrounded by the magnificent Otway rainforest. Everything ( food, service etc.) was excellent, but by far our favourite part of the stay, was the opportunity to learn about and get as close as possible to some of Australia's unique wildlife. It was an unforgettable experience. Koalas, Sugar... More

I stayed here for a conservation experience package costing USD 1555 for 2 nights/3 days all inclusive. My room was simple, but comfortable. From my window, I could observe many kangaroos grazing, prancing and their many other adorable antics. Just outside the Lodge, Koalas are readily sighted on the surrounding trees. I had an amazing time watching them sleep under... More

This was the surprise hit of our month long vacation in Australia. We stayed at the EcoLodge (3 days/2 nights which was perfect; 2 couples and young adult) as part of our drive from Melbourne to Adelaide. I booked based on the TripAdvisor reviews and our stay far exceeded our expectations. We simply loved staying with Shane and Lizzie. Why... More

We stayed two nights as part of Walk91 Great Ocean Walk experience. We were slower walkers, so missed the dusk eco-walk tour of the property the first night. We were warmed up and dry soon--wet muddy shoes taken to dry n from of the fire. We did have to tote our own luggage up to the second floor--almost made me... More

A truly unique experience. We arrived just in time for the guided walk. We were shown around the property which has wild animals as well as animals that they were caring for to be able to release in the wild. After dinner, we fed the sugar gliders. The room was very clean and adequate. The food is good. There were... More

This was a unique experence. We did not know exactly what to expect but it far surpassed our expectations. We arrived mid afternoon and having settled in to our en suite room, afternoon tea was served at about 4 o'clock. Accommodation is for 10 guests and when all the other guests had arrived, at 4.30 we were invited to walk... More

We'd been booked into the Ecolodge as part of the Walk91 programme, so as we didn't really know what it was and as we'd just walked our first 12miles on the Great Ocean Walk we weren't really sure what to expect. Our en suite room was small but spotless and with the most comfortable bed I've slept in so far... More

I was in a group of 10 "older" walkers who stayed overnight at the Ecolodge, as part of our Walk91 package. Our first days walk was wet, so we were very grateful when we arrived at the Centre for hot showers and a large fireplace to dry our clothing and boots! Can't praise the staff enough - they were very... More
