Lovely peaceful setting. Geoffs rack of lamb was full of flavour and great way to finish off the day! We were very happy with the converted carriage, which was clean with a good comfortable bed. Would happily stay again and recommend it to friends.

We were on a short trip down the Great Ocean Road and found this charming accommodation on the internet. Geoff (and Cookie the guard Cookatoo) welcomed us despite the late hour and cooked us an amazing dinner of rack of lamb with gratin. Beautiful. Our stay in the converted train carriage was lovely and cozy and had everything we were... More

Thank you very much for your review, it is very encouraging to receive positive feed-back. Since we first started this little family business (in an industry we'd had no previous experience in) we've really learnt a lot, the old "J" curve learning process. Recent reviews are an indication to us that we're moving in the right direction, and we will... More

We had been on a 2 week holiday with our children and wanted to give them a surprise along the way.. what more than spending the night on the Bondi Express. They loved it.. i know it don't sound like a surprise but its a memory they will keep. We were running late and we got a call from the... More

Thank you very much for writing a review, these types of reviews help us a lot to keep improving our service & property. A couple of times now someone has commented on the "Musty" aroma in the room, but I can assure you there's no damp in the room/s. And we fully clean and air them between visits. You have... More

Unfortunately I have a rather mixed review . Contrary to the other negative reviews I found Colin to be lovely and very friendly . Let me address some of the other points in the reviews to clarify it : 1- Yes the camp kitchen is old as stated in the reviews but charming and perfect for what we needed and... More

Thanks for your enquiry for your review. Yes, we do clean the rooms very carefully between visits, sorry there seemed to be some issue & we take that on board (no pun intended) & make an extra effort to avoid anything similar again. More

We have been staying at Codrington Gardens for a number of years now. We started off staying in one of the train carriages which was a fun experience. For the last 3 years we have stayed in Olive Tree Cottage which is perfect for our group of 4 adults. Geoff and Yuan always make us welcome and it is fantastic... More

If you want the opportunity to experience the charm and beauty of the 'old red rattlers', then Codrington Gardens has a choice of trains you can choose from. Lovingly restored and meticulously clean, sleeping in one of the train carriages was a welcome treat after the long procession of motel and hotel rooms. The lovely gardens and variety of animals...

Thanks for your praise, we appreciate it very much. Baby Alpaca is now the leader of the pack, and very naughty. She takes the other girls on "adventures" making mischief all over the property. Recently she has taken 4 baby Peacocks under her "wing", we can only imagine (dread) what sort of mischief she's going to lead them into. More

A perfect place to relax and enjoy a different kind of accommodation. We stayed in an old train carriage which was fun and something out of the ordinary, rooms were clean and spacious, good bathrooms and a veranda with chairs outside.Such beautiful surroundings with great nature, well kept gardens and lots of animals. The owners were really helpful and welcoming.... More

Decided to get out of Melboune at the last minute for the Australia Day weekend. As we wanted to travel with our two dogs our options were limited.

I visited Codrington Gardens before and felt so relaxed when I returned home I knew it was exactly the break I needed again. In a short period of time the place has been through a lot of change. The gardens are brighter and more vibrant with a new collection of animals to visit at every turn. Even the fine details... More

Great place with a difference! We travelled with our 6 and 8 yo and it was perfect. Each morning the kids woke up and went for a walk to say good morning to all the animals. In the evening a similar routine to say good night. Holding baby chicks, talking with the Cockatoo, watching the Al Pacas, ... always chatting... More
