Play Shack®... Play or just kick back & relax!

Play Shack offers a premium collection of five self-contained holiday homes, all located within a few minutes’ of each other in the Victorian High Country. Our Play Shack properties - named 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 - are each independent of each other and are booked separately.

We are very proud that our flagship accommodation Play Shack 2 River Front was awarded Stayz Best Family Accommodation in Australia 2015/2016 as judged by independent judges.

Now with the introduction of Play Shack 5, only a few minutes’ drive from Play Shack 2 River Front, we are delighted to offer another high quality property also uniquely positioned right beside the Delatite River.

Suited to large groups and small wedding parties, Play Shack 5’s generous accommodation consists of five bedrooms, four bathrooms, two living areas, a sauna and drying room; and is surrounded by an acre of beautiful gardens.

Play Shack 5 River Front will provide the ultimate luxury getaway for your family and friends in a picturesque and peaceful location. Enjoy skiing in winter, with the gates of Mt Buller only 25 minutes’ drive from the property, and at other times, guests can make the most of the endless attractions that the region and Play Shack has to offer.

Play Shack 5’s back door leads directly to the river and the property is perfectly positioned to take advantage of the wonderful natural scenery offered that the Victorian High Country is famous for. Daily visits from kangaroos, birds and the occasional deer will make your stay even more exciting.

A wonderful location for professional and amateur photographers, fisherman, bike riders and nature lovers as well as anyone looking for that something special for any occasion. Play Shack 5 is perfect for family birthday or anniversary celebrations, girls’ weekends or reunions with old friends – any large group get together is accommodated in style.

The house comfortably caters for multiple families with four king size beds, 11 single beds and two living and dining areas - all with beautifully designed interiors.

Inside Play Shack 5, families are extremely spoilt. Two distinct wings of the house provide peace and quiet at one end with beautiful vistas of the river from the open plan living area with cosy open fire and cathedral ceilings, while the other wing caters for fun and games for kids and adults with a second living/rumpus room containing a pool/ping pong table and two sofas, bar and TV.

Features include our brand new sauna, a handy separate wine fridge and two dining tables so the kids and adults can have their own table if desired, plus a beautiful outdoor dining area and swing set for the kids.

Whatever your holiday requirements, we have the perfect Play Shack to cater to all your needs. Just ask us, we’re here to help make your next holiday perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT PROPERTY & LOCATION FOR LARGE GROUPS We stayed in early October and were immediately surprise at the tranquil location which included a river through the property. Facilities, amenities and overall cleanliness were 5/5 and perfectly set up for larger groups.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful house for family get together Play Shack 5 provided an exceptionally comfortable and livable space for our family group of 8 adults and 4 children. We all had plenty of room (particularly -plenty of bathrooms), comfortable beds and there were so many amenities provided. Great to have a kitchen with enough crockery, glassware etc and good quality cookware. The kids really enjoyed the toy boxes and books for a bit of variety from their own. That's just the house - the setting with the open aspect and river out the front is just beautiful and we felt quite secluded. Not a criticism because its part of being in a rural setting, but be prepared that both phone and internet are patchy and this is why I have only rated 'good' for the location.
