Nice, quiet place, beautiful garden/ view. Friendly owners. Easy check in and check out. Very spacious bungalow. Everything needed was there.Really nothing negative to say about this place. Only problem could be that there are not a lot of ( good) choices for restaurants in the neighborhood if you don't want to cook. Good idea to do some grocery shopping... More

We stayed at The Boomerangs for three nights between Christmas and New Year. It is very conveniently located for the Great Ocean Road sites. Mark, Roz and their very friendly canine, Hanna, were very welcoming. The self catering cottages were beautifully presented - lovely and clean and full of traditional Australian art and artefacts, including a boomerang shaped stained glass... More

Spent two nights with a friend and her daughter. Loved the cottages, the location, natural beauty. This is a clean, comfortable place to stay while visiting the Great Ocean Road and the 12 Apostles. Would highly recommend it and would return if I could!

The cottage was well situated along Great Ocean Road, and there was a lovely view of the surrounding fields. The garden was well sculpted and my family and I enjoyed watching the various wildlife outside our cottage. The hosts there were friendly and responded well to any queries we had, and it was a pleasant and enjoyable stay during our... More

Convenient location on the GOR but the cabins are set well & screened off with very beautiful and well maintained native gardens. Well appointed nad very clean accommodation. There is no sea view but that was amply replaced by a lush green vista. I had two minor beefs: firstly there was very little space to get around and into the... More

Thank you for your review. We are pleased that you liked our gardens and our location on the Great Ocean Road. We are aware that the bedrooms in our cottages are small, the Boomerang shape of our cottages means that there is less space in the bedrooms. We are sorry that your feet were cold. We will look into providing... More

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
