Peaceful location with the roar of the ocean in the distance and we'll appointed cabins surrounded by immaculately maintained gardens. From flying our kite with the kids on the lawn to the morning visits from the resident cuddly canine Hanna (for ball or boot throwing - don't worry she brings her own!), we had an amazing weekend. Perfect base for... More

we drove the Great ocean road and had booked ourselves into the boomerang hotel in Johanna. We thought Johanna to be a village. It is just a beach and dotted with good distance some houses. Next food source is 9 k away. The boomerang cottages are wonderful. The views and gardens are stunning. Mark and Roz are very informative and... More

Thank you for your review of our cottages. We are glad you found the cottages wonderful. Johanna is a rural area but the nearest town of Lavers Hill is only 9km away where you can buy food supplies or have a meal in the pub or cafe. We agree two nights is not long enough to see all that the... More

The number 2 cottage was cosy, allowing us to see the sunsets or lightning from our relaxed safe vantage point away form the elements. We loved the natural timber decor. The ecofriendly products used were important to us, esp the organic shampoos and soaps. The beds and pillows were comfy and clean smelling, so were the towels...all very good for... More

After a mishap with our booking for the night at The Otway Light station,Roz and Mark took us in for the night.

We really loved our 3 night stay at the Boomerangs. It was perfect. Even though the weather was not ideal, the huge windows made it a great place to kick back, watch the sky, the birds and the outdoors in comfort. Roz and Mark had thought of everything. They were invisible hosts who were there when we needed them. Two... More

We spent three lovely nights here. The cottage is very well appointed with all you need in the kitchen to be able to cook a dinner after a day of exploration. We stocked up in Apollo Bay on the way in. The cottage is very cosy with an open fire, lovely spa bath, nice after a day of walking and... More

Had a lovely time at The Boomerangs with my partner and the son of a friend who was visiting Australia for the first time.

Host is lovely, friendly and accommodating. Surrounds are peaceful and bucolic even with the traffic from the GOR. Cabin 3 suited us very well. We reckon it may have the best view. The cabin itself is well maintained and clean. There is a didgeridoo on the wall if you want to have a go at it. Careful of the traffic... More
