Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful & relaxing retreat An enjoyable experience in the country. Toasting marshmallows around the Fire pit & sitting on the wide deck to enjoy the scenery were highlights.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a gem ! Beautiful decor, warm and welcoming - the owners have provided everything you could wish for in this lovely cottage. There is nothing like the warmth from a Coonara to come back to after a day at the snow . We loved our stay and will definitely return !

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ticks all the boxes We have been going up to Mansfield and it's surrounding areas for years and keep going back for more. Since we discovered 'Austracantha' we don't bother looking at other properties, it suits all our needs. It's clean, cosy and well kitted out. The outside fire-pit is great for sitting around at night, toasting marshmallows and the mornings are such a treat with an abundance of kangaroos grazing out the front of the property. It's good value for money and close to town and Mt Buller.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfectly Divine I can't believe we were lucky enough to find this amazing place with a last minute booking. As soon as we arrived we knew this cottage was going to be just perfect. Situated in an elevated position which is secluded and private, just perfect for that weekend getaway to recharge the batteries. It has brilliant views from the front deck which has two hammocks that you can set up there also. Inside has a very cozy wood heater, renovated kitchen and bathroom plus three great bedrooms. We loved playing tennis and badminton in the rear yard with our daughter. Our daughter loved exploring the acreage with all of the wildlife around (especially the kangaroos). As much as we enjoyed all of the games that are provided, we just loved toasting the marshmallows in the outside fire pit. The cottage is only 10 mins from the town centre also. All in all I cannot rate this special cottage any higher, you will just love it!!!
