Be one of the first to stay
Oikos pronounced eekos at Breakneck Gorge is a destination for lovers of nature, architecture and romance. This 20-hectare retreat at Elevated Plains is the first rural property on the edge of Hepburn Springs and Daylesford, found just minutes from the town centre.
Oikos, whose name is derived from a Greek word which means dwelling, is a bold, angular statement: an imaginative private retreat with an inspiring aesthetic.
Set on the edge of the gorge, this ridge-hugging modern structure is designed as a sculptural form in which to dwell.
Oikos celebrates the beauty in nature, with open expanses of glass on three sides displaying the majesty of its surrounds.
Be seduced by the charm of Oikos: expansive viewing deck, glass-framed daybed, designer furniture, free-standing black polished cement bath and an architecturally inspired garden.
Spending time at Breakneck Gorge will leave you feeling on top of the world. From sunrise to sunset stunning vistas beneath the ever-changing sky unfold in every direction. This unparalleled 360-degree spectacle is mesmerising.
