We checked into the Tanjil waterfront unit for two nights. We paid for a one bedroom but was upgraded to the two bedroom tanjil because it was available and on the waterfront. Impression was unbelievably beautiful. A roo was laying down at the back just waiting for some seeds. It wasn't long after, the rest came. Then the Rosellas came... More

The proximity and interaction with the kangaroos is legitimate and unbelievable and breathtaking. We stayed in the 2 br unit with the spa tub. The people were great, especially Mark who seemed helpful with the kayaks and the directions So what keeps it from being 5 stars? Being a "city person" from the US who typically prefers Marriott hotels and... More

Stayed for 4nights in a 1 bedroom unit with a good views with kangaroos and bird life . Unit was relatively new with good furnishings and reasonably fitted out kitchen. Most of the things you need in a kitchen ( no oven but a small microwave ) small hot plate BBQ. Over 20 Kms from Bairnsdale so it is a... More

We are looking for quiet and beautiful place for family vacation. And here is the place more than we expected! We could hire or enjoy heated pool, spa, push bikes, Kayak and more,for free. And the staff were so kind . it seems to have private cottage for us. Strongly recommend!

A really fantastic place to stop along the coast, for a couple or family. The self contained lodge I stayed in was clean and was open plan living which was great, waking up and looking out to the water through the clearing was beautiful, with all the different birds and lots of kangaroos at your doorstep. I recommend to take... More

We stayed in a 1bd unit over the Easter period. The accommodation was very spacious and felt private. Mostly clean on arrival, although bench was covered in crumbs, and crockery / glassware needed rewashing. We brought our own duvet & pillows on advice from friends who recently stayed, worth doing as supplied duvet is very light weight and it can... More

We would like to compliment the owners a unique development which allows the local wildlife (kangaroos,echidnas, swans, birds) to enjoy this place as much as the guests. The well designed lodge we stayed in had an uninterrupted view from the split level bedroom into the bush full of ancient banksia trees. The indoor/outdoor swimming pool was a great benefit in...

We paid $200/n for a 2 bed spa unit on Wotif and whilst this is more than our budget usually allows we were very happy and definitely felt it was worth it. The apartment was spacious, clean, light-filled and comfortable with fantastic views of the inlet. The staff were very friendly and I'm not just talking about the kangaroos. Location... More

What a beautiful place to relax and unwind. Hosts are helpful, very secluded resort. Lots of activities if you want or if not just walk around or laze. Units are bright and roomy. But best lf all the wildlife that just drops in, various kinds of birds, bunnies and the most friendly, cuddly, curious (and hungry) kangaroos. We fed them... More
