Australian Traveller Magazine’s 100 Great Australian Holiday Homes
Bushwalking, horse-riding, golfing, fishing, surfing; Gwinganna has it all in close proximity. This beautiful country home on Victoria’s south coast is faultlessly located between the dense forests of Otway National Park and the crescent sands of the pretty fishing village of Apollo Bay. The huge garden literally backs onto the rainforest, so when you tire of admiring the Japanese Maples, Weeping Cherry trees and decorative sculptures on your own property, you can head out for a hike in the wilderness, only to pop back out in the backyard in time for sundowners. The house sleeps ten in three double beds and four singles, has a games room with a billiards and tennis table, and is elegantly furnished in brown and cream with polished timber floors.
