My husband and I stayed at Wild Patch to celebrate our Wedding Anniversary. We normally head to the city for special occasions but I'm so glad that this time we didn't. We stayed in the 'Chocolate Studio' which was immaculately clean and extremely comfortable. The surroundings were serene and we both felt so relaxed. However, as other reviewers have mentioned,...

Peaceful, relaxing retreat. Located in the heart of Olinda.The chocolate studio was perfect for my my husband and I. A clean, modern room with our favourite feature being the fireplace. Warm bread and fresh eggs delivered to our door for breakfast was an extra bonus.

My partner and I chose Wild Patch Retreat as our Valentines weekend away for the purpose of romance, relaxation and indulgence. It was perfect! All the little thoughtful details Linda and the Wild Patch team have in place - too many to mention all of them - ensured this. Incredibly inviting.. An email of preferences was sent out to us...

Wild Patch Retreat was the perfect location for my pre wedding prep with Mum and Bridesmaids. The host is delightful and the fresh bread and fresh eggs make it unique and special. Also the chicken coop is amazing.

Ha! We'll pass on your compliments to our gorgeous chickens for laying the colour-themed eggs for you (the blue shelled eggs were from our Araucanas, the smaller buff ones from our Silkies and .. the Belgian, well, she's got a chick to look after, so no eggs from her for a while). Glad the wedding preparations went perfectly and hope... More

My husband and I spent our anniversary weekend at Wild Patch. Linda was a lovely host, and we enjoyed her special touches of freshly baked bread and choccies around the room. The Studio is a private little getaway in amongst the tall trees of the Dandenongs. We loved our chocolate making course, and also feeding the chickens. Thankyou Linda for... More

My husband and I have just arrived home from 2 nights in the Wild Patch Studio where we found relaxation, peace and the re-energising of our mind, body and soul. It is only a 40 minute drive to Olinda from our home, 'so close, yet so far away', to find such tranquility and peace. A hidden gem in The Dandenong... More

It was so lovely to have met you too and we're glad the whole family enjoyed our property so much. We now have some baby chicks! We gave Truffle (our grey speckled Belgian d'Uccle) two-day old chicks (named Charlie and Top Deck) to look after and she's doing a great job. The chicks are now 10 days old (you can... More

I arrived with my bridemaids and mother the day before my wedding and everything was perfect. The room smelt and fresh bread and chocolates were laid out for each of us. The views were beautiful and helped captured beautiful photos of myself and bridesmaids.

We're so pleased it was the perfect setting to prepare for your wedding day. Thanks so much for sending us through some of the beautiful photos of you with bridesmaids in the garden; the light, as we commented that day, was just perfect for the backdrop of lush greens.
