Bushman's Clock is located on the road between the scenic North Walkerville beach, 4 kilometres to the south, and the picturesque village of Fish Creek 15 kilometres to the north. You will find Wilsons Promontory National Park, a 25-minute journey away.

The cottage sitting room boasts wonderful views over the 10-acre property across verdant farming land towards the sea and beyond. Take a deck chair out onto the verandah and let your cares slip away. Enjoy magnificent sunrises and sunsets and the activities of many different native animals and birds as they go about their daily business.

We can supply a fold out single bed if needed but please note the bathroom can only be accessed from the bedroom.

Gas heating ensures you are comfortable during cooler weather. So snuggle down on the sofa and watch a movie on the DVD player or read a book from the shelf.

The large bedroom also has sensational views, and is furnished with a quality king size bed which can be separated to create twin beds upon request.

Adjoining the bedroom is a spacious ensuite bathroom with shower, vanity and lavatory. There is gas infinity hot water and a hairdryer.


There is a walk-in wardrobe with plenty of storage space for belongings and luggage. You will find an iron, ironing board and clothes drying rack for your convenience.

The kitchen is fully-equipped and features a comprehensive choice of crockery, cutlery, glassware and cooking utensils. There is a small refrigerator with freezer, a gas cooktop and oven, microwave, kettle, toaster, filter coffee machine, coffee plunger and a pantry store cupboard.

This beautifully appointed cottage is the perfect get away for two.

The gravel driveway winds through an Australian country garden to a cottage perched high above farmland that rolls far away to the sea.

Bushman's Clock is set on 10 glorious acres of coastal, eucalypt woodland four kilometres from Walkerville North adjacent to the Cape Liptrap Coastal Reserve.

From the one-bedroom, self-contained cottage you can see for miles to Anderson Inlet and the Bass Strait. Wind turbines march across the low-lying hills to the east and west, appearing and disappearing with the changing light of day and shifting moods of weather. Cattle graze across the broad, lush valley that lies between your balcony and the endless horizon.

Well maintained pathways meander through the bush to viewing points and open meadows with drifts of native orchids, places for the perfect picnic or to relax and read a book.

The branches of twisted coastal gums stretch out their welcoming embrace. Two grass trees lean against a rough-barked tree trunk whilst down in the gully a natural spring ensures the wildlife have plenty to drink.

The superb bush garden provides the perfect sanctuary for the abundant birdlife. Most days you will be sure to see something of the native wildlife, perhaps an echidna foraging, a wombat trundling across a path or a koala hugging a tree. In the morning or late afternoon you will hear a kookaburra The Bushman's Clock laughing through the trees to let you know it's time for tea.

The beautiful beaches of Walkerville North and South, Sandy Point and Waratah Bay are just down the road, but once you've settled in at Bushman's Clock you won't ever want to leave.


The main 3 bedroom house is close by and is also listed on Stayz. There is some flat ground between the house and cottage which would be great for pitching a tent. You could book all of Bushman's Clock for family and friends to holiday together.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from NICE ....BUT....It is getting a bit tired! It is a pleasant location but the property needs an update.....from the rusty fly wire door that welcomes you, to the carpet which is getting a bit old and musty, to the outside which would love a fresh coat of paint!! The view is great , but the wind farms unfortunately detract from the scene. We did have some difficulty initially with the booking, but finally established that no linen was provided in the daily rate quoted! The property was nice and quite, and we were very lucky that the house on the property was unoccupied for our stay. If there were tenants there it would dramatically change the ambience as they are right on your front door! On balance, we could not recommend this property to others.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful stay! We absolutely loved our stay at Bushman's clock! It was so peaceful and relaxing amongst the beautiful surrounds and wildlife. The cottage provided us with everything we needed, so we were able to enjoy our holiday worry free. Definitely wouldn't hesitate to stay again - loved every moment! Close to the beach too, but far enough away to enjoy the peaceful serenity of this so wonderful part of the world.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Peaceful and relaxing getaway Myself and my partner really enjoyed out stay at the cottage. It was cosy and comfortable and had everything we needed for a weekend away. The surrounding area is so peaceful and we thoroughly enjoyed doing walks with our dog at the Cape liptrap coastal park and sandy point. The bed was super comfortable and there were some great DVDs and games in the cottage to keep us entertained on a cold winter night. Would definitely stay again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cosy and comfortable My partner and I throughly enjoyed staying at the cottage. It was a very cold weekend but it was very toasty and warm in the cottage. The cottage had good amenities, everything we needed for a comfortable weekend. Great views of farmland, very tranquil. Would definitely stay there again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great space! Quiet ambiance, spectacular view! The cottage was clean and comfortable, with a king double bed, large bathroom and plenty of DVD's to view when the weather was inclement. I'd like to see some sharper knives in the kitchen but otherwise it was well stocked, with excellent coffee bags, sugar & tea, etc. Don't bring too much for the fridge, as it's only small. We loved the comfy two-seater and were very cosy and comfortable during all of our stay.
