We cut one night off staying in Apollo Bay and chose The Boomerangs instead. After a very long day at the Otway Fly, we welcomed the accommodation being close. The owners/managers were so welcoming and warmed the Boomerang prior to us coming. As well, we were treated to our fire being prepared so all we needed to do was strike... More

The Boomerangs are cosy. Each cottage is shaped like a boomerang and has an unobstructed view of the south coast of Victoria - albeit with a glimpse of the ocean. There is a good kitchen with an adjoining spa bathroom, equipped with a washing machine, a lounge/TV room with a balcony. barbecue and (most importantly) a wood-burning stove, and a... More

Boomerangs is one of the best decisions I made on this trip. There is an important point to be made here about travel planning. I chose to stay in a wonderful place; somewhere that just hanging out is a treat. We got stuck in the bungalow because of the weather, and because the place we were staying was so awesome,... More

Mark and Roz were friendly and helpful hosts. They have made the accommodation welcoming with little touches like a pair of secateurs so that we could cut flowers from the garden to put in the room. When there was a power cut Roz came with candles, a lamp and a flask of hot water so that we could have a... More

Mark and Roz are such friendly, welcoming hosts - not to mention Hanna, the rather gorgeous dog, in charge of customer relations and ball fetching. We stayed for two nights at the end of February and found the lodge to be beautifully equipped and perfectly located. My wife and I were sad to leave and found the whole experience of... More

It has two small bedrooms with queen beds, a well equipped kitchen/dining area, a living room with small wood burning stove and two couches. The living... More

Fabulous location. Being in the wilderness surrounded by nature is a very unique experience that one doesn't get too often. We were there with our parents and absolutely loved it.

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

Thank you for your review of our cottages. We are glad you found the cottages wonderful.
