OUTDOORS is what Wye River is all about. Our huge deck has great forest and sea views and the local wildlife visits often! Other features include, BBQ, outdoor setting, arm chairs and outdoor shower. Our block is quite flat (rare for Wye!) this makes it a great space for kids to go exploring the local bush. Walk up the driveway at night and and see if you can spot the glow worms.
LOCAL AMENITIES include the famous Wye Beach Hotel, an amazing spot for a parma or something a bit more fancy, great wine list and a cracking range of local beers on tap. Wye General Store does very good coffee and cafe fare, their home baked sour dough is a must try! Fish and Chips from the Koala Cafe at Kennet River (5kms) are really good too. If you need to do a bigger supermarket shop then head to Lorne or Apollo Bay.
