Perched high above the quiet township of Apollo Bay, this modest yet surprisingly well presented converted shearing shed has everything to offer when your looking for that place thats just that little bit different. Private, tranquil, peacefull and serene are four words that spring to mind when one describes this lovely property. Sit back and relax to enjoy the great atmosphere and panorama that surround you. There is 120 acres of nature lovers paradise for you with a vast range of flora and fauna.For the golf fans, why not bring the clubs and try our demanding all weather 180 yard one hole course. All this knowing that your a short 5km walk away from all of the attractions Apollo Bay has to offer. Spend a couple of days and explore the world famous Great Ocean Road's local attractions. This experience isnt only available to yourselves though, but also to your four legged friends. This property is pet friendly and a heavenly place for your dog. The "Two Stand" is a neat self contained studio semi detached & suitable for 2 people or a couple seeking solitude within the private surrounds.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Paradise Our Idea of paradise. Homely rustic charm with gorgeous countryside views. Felt like a home from home. Great kitchen and utensils, really clean, lots of cosy touches. We will definitely be back. The dogs absolutely loved it too. Thanks Ross & Co.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what we wanted it to be I booked this place for myself and a group of friends as an annual weekend getaway. Each year it is the next person in the groups turn to pick a new holiday house / pay and do all of the organising (more pressure than any one person should ever have to cope with!) After 7 years of this trialling a new place each year we have found 'the one'. The Old Shearing Shed is simply majestic. It is full of character and charm and the view out over the Valley from both inside and outside ( great big windows with a perfectly placed daybed) literally stops you in your tracks,, it is simply mesmerising. You can also set up a tee and smash old golf balls as far into the valley as you can..not necessarily as soul cleansing as staring out into a valley watching the sunset with a glass of red but equally as satisfying! Another highlight was the extra large dinning table and adjoining open plan kitchen area - each night preparing dinner, eating, cleaning and the after dinner drinks all merged into one social gathering / sitting which was exactly what we were after given we look forward to this holiday catch up all year. I really can't recommend this place enough. After 7 years of trialling a new holiday house each year we all agreed we won't risk disappointment next year, we are coming back to the Shearing Shed and can't wait!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Shanti Shanti Reconnected with nature and the 4 elements high on a hill surrounded by pasture and rain forest. The accommodation was very cosy when the weather closed in and when the sun showed its face ahhh... the turqoise ocean in the distance. "Far away from the madding crowds" an opportunity to re engage with silence and rediscover peace.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Old Shearing Shed Did we stay at the same place as the previous reviewer ??!!This place is a gem! Our family, kids, dogs and all, felt immediately comfortable in this fabulously restored and decorated shearing shed. Quiet (we slept like babies), clean, loads of space, toasty warm with everything we needed and more. Sensational views with eagles, horses, cows, kangaroos and a particularly hilarious goat wandering through to add to the fun. Short drive down to gorgeous Apollo Bay beach - the walk down the hill even better. Highly recommended! We will be back!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Needs a bit of attention There is a difference between rustic and old. The wool shed might have been rustic at its inception but now is just old. Remove kitch prints from toilet, clean other prints and spiderwebs from lighting and roof, fix bathroom door as gets stuck on tiles and bathtub needs re-enamelling. I tried to sleep most of the time but ended up with sore ribs due to the wires of the mattress digging into me, hence mattresses need replacing and linens should be white, it smelt like they had not been washed as I could smell other people's body odours in the pillow and doona. A table and some chairs on the verandah where we could have enjoyed a glass of wine would have been nice.
