We stayed for 3 nights and were greeted by the owner's son who was looking after the property whilst they were away. David was really welcoming and kind but was understandably a little less versed on all the walks / eateries in the area. The place was surprisingly warm given the only heating was from one wood stove . The... More

We originally planned to book the lofthouse but decided against this as we will be travelling with an infant and the layout of the house would not be very convenient. Liasing however with David has been a breeze and he has been very prompt and helpful with every enquiry, going to lengths such as taking photographs of the house. Such... More

Wonderful hosts who supplied everything we needed. Harry makes the best bread delivered hot & steaming each morning (different each time) Also at the base of some of the best mountains to climb. Not far from Halls Gap also for a day outing. Thank you Iwona & Harry for a lovely 4 days.

We were intending to stay one night and ended up booking for two - we could not face heading back to Melbourne! Harry the owner is absolutely delightful. He is incredibly helpful and knowledgable about the area and its local wildlife. Harry has a kangaroo and wallaby sanctuary onsite and will happily show you around - we were privileged to... More

Very hospitable host (Harry) and a lovely, clean, spacious lodge. Breakfast was amazing and the daily fresh bread was such a treat. Loved sitting inside by the fire on the crisp mornings while watching the wildlife outside. Thanks Harry for a wonderful stay.

We stayed in one of the tree houses and had an amazing time. The lodges are beautiful and have big windows which give you an amazing view into the forest. Waking up and seeing the kangaroos and wallabies just outside our window was lovely. The hosts are very sweet and helpful. If you're looking for a peaceful and quiet stay... More

Stayed in the treehouse just wife and myself. Had a great time Harry is a wonderful host ensuring there was always enough wood to keep the fire going, introducing us to the local Wallabies and providing almonds just encase some roos or emus approached on one of their many walking trails. House is great and the views through the many... More

Just spent 3 nights at Aquila and couldn't speak more highly of this accommodation (I wish we were still there!). We stayed in the Treehouse Lodge, which was set in the bush, high amongst the trees. The accommodation was very comfortable and of very high standard. The huge glass windows provided a beautiful outlook to the bush and plenty of... More

Where do I begin! Went there over the weekend just for a getaway from the city. Stayed at the treehouse which is a 3 level house with amazing amazing view. We get to watch the stars from our bedroom at night. Harry has been an absolute champ, delivering fresh baked bread in the morning which is just what we need... More

A great destination which ticks all of the boxes. Beautiful part of the world and Aquila is the perfect accomodation venue. Comfortable, cosy, quiet. Wonderful down time with a book and a newspaper looking out on a bush setting. Take your bike; the Victoria Valley is perfect for cycling.
