Unique stays

Victoria has some very unique and wonderful accommodation options for those who are seeking a break with a distinct difference.

  • Cape Otway Lightstation

    A fascinating lighthouse stay option exists on the Great Ocean Road at Cape Otway. The Cape Otway Lightstation began operating in 1848 and guests can enjoy a stay at one of the several historic buildings on-site. Groups are also well catered for, with the head lightkeeper's house sleeping up to 16 guests.

  • Echuca Gardens

    There's a few accommodation options available at Echuca Gardens, but for something really different, stay in one of their replica 19th century gypsy wagons. They feature modern facilities and are perfect for that romantic getaway with a taste of yesteryear. The gypsy wagons are situated at Echuca, right next to a huge state forest and walking distance to the Murray River and town centre.

  • Grampians Historic Tobacco Kiln

    This refurbished tobacco kiln from the 1920s is located just a few kilometres from Dunkeld, on the southern outskirts of the Grampians National Park. Full of history and charm, the double brick kiln building features a loft bedroom, a kitchenette and modern bathroom. It is situated on a working sheep and alpaca farm where you can participate in an interactive farm tour or simply relax and enjoy the spectacular views.

  • Old Dadswell Town

    On the edge of the Grampians National Park near Stawell, experience a taste of Aussie nostalgia and humour by staying in one of the themed cottages on offer. Resembling old style Australian town, there's even a garage with motor memorabilia and a shearing shed style town hall.

  • Red Rattler Retreat

    Stay in an authentic "red rattler" railway carriage which has been restored and converted into living quarters. The Red Rattler Retreat offers peaceful accommodation on a working farm in the rural community of Boorhaman, next to the Ovens River and less than 15 minutes drive from Wangaratta.
