Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful accommodation We had a party of 10, with the mix of couples, singles and 4 kids. This place can accommodate just about any mix. The appointments are terrific and well maintained. Enough bathrooms to satisfy everyone, plus a separate loo where we could send the boys during the day. Just far enough out of Warrnambool to be away from it all, but close enough to everything as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Hidden Gem When you first drive up to the property, we saw a store front and weren't sure where we'd be staying. BUT, once going beyond that store front (found out later that the property is listed on the National Registry) and looking inside, we were amazed and intrigued at the property design, layout, and how up-to-date it was. Upon contacting Bob (the owner), he welcomed us with wonderful Warrnambool/Australian hospitality and was very helpful in showing us around the property pointing out key features to help make our stay enjoyable. This property is excellent for large groups and with everything/everyone spread out inside, we all felt like we had our own space. Our group had traveled around Australia for almost thirty days before arriving at Austral Place 88 and we unanimously agreed that this was by far the best property that we stayed at and how reasonable the price was for our 11 people--wished we had stayed there longer This was truly a hidden gem as well as a great launching point to begin your adventure on the Great Ocean Road--thanks, Bob, for everything!
