Warrawong Cedar Cottage is on a mixed farm of 180 acres on the Werribee River. It provides a great opportunity for the whole family to enjoy a working farm, walk to the river to paddle, throw stone or fish, visit and climb the ancient rocky escarpment and have wonderful views of the Werribee Gorge and flowing river. Kasper, our alpaca, looks after our new born lambs by keeping foxes away. On our river flats, friendly refugee neighbours come and go daily, tending the vegetable plots we have provided them to help them adjust to the country. Shopping is 10 minutes away in Melton at all major supermarkets. A fast train service to Melbourne is also 5 minutes away. A world class golf course has been built at the nearby new township of Eynesbury. Close to the cottage there is a small cabin with toilet, sofa-bed and table that provides a quieter, scenic and private experience.

The farm's heritage listed Woolshed is very popular as a wedding venue. It has lots of history from the farming activities of the early settlers in the area. It is a place children love to explore.

The farm is 36 minutes drive from Werribee zoo, 57 minutes from Sovereign Hill in Ballarat and 45 minutes from Melbourne city's Bourke St Mall.

John and Mila live in the farm's large homestead which is about 100 metres from the cottage.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Delightful I stayed at the cottage for 3 nights with my wife and 3 kids (8-11) and it was a wonderful place to stay and very peaceful. The cottage was very nice, clean and cozy with bunk beds in one room and also a trundle which we needed and a queen in the other room, The undercover area out the back was awesome to relax on and look at the great views of the hills. The kids really enjoyed running around the property exploring as well as playing in the historic barn there. We all really enjoyed our time there and John was very accommodating to any of our needs and questions. I would highly recommend staying there.
