Unique, luxury Eco Lodges located in the woodlands of the Grampians National Park.

Built at the foot of towering Mt Abrupt, Aquila's Lofthouse and Treehouse lodges are set in their own secluded area, surrounded by dense bush land, grass trees, native orchids and wildlife.

Aquila has 4 architect designed lodges that are build a fair distance from each other to create a sense of privacy. They are set in their own bush garden with a private parking area.
There are two types of lodges on Aquila property, Treehouse and Lofthouse design.
The Treehouse consists of three levels, where the BBQ area is on the ground level; living area, kitchen and bathroom are on the second level and the bedroom on the third level.
This lodge is designed as a couple retreat, however it can sleep two additional single guests in the lounge room.
We do not recommend the Treehouse for children below 10 years old.
The Lofthouse on the other hand is build to accommodate families and small groups of friends wanting to spend time together away from a city buzz.
It is a two level structure, where the living area, kitchen and one bedroom are on the ground floor and the second bedroom is on a mezzanine floor on the next level.
The tiled, roofed verandah extends from the lounge room area; here you find BBQ with a sitting area and adjacent to it a private sandstone bathroom.
The Lofthouse accommodates 4 guests in two bedrooms, however it can sleep two additional people in the lounge room area.
As advertised the maximum capacity at Aquila Eco Lodges is 20 people however for the sake of comfort we recommend 12 to 16.
