ARNICA VIEWS is the most exclusive retreat for couples or singles at the very height of Melbourne.

Offering magnificently appointed and self contained cottages with excellent service. Located on the summit of the beautiful Mount Dandenong and adjacent to Skyhigh and the Observatory. The property boasts glorious 80 year old English gardens and stunning views of the Melbourne city skyline.

Tariffs are inclusive of a generous English breakfast hamper for each day of stay (with free range eggs, bacon, beans, locally baked bread, jams, cereals, fruit, yogurt, fruit juice, teas and plunger coffee). Also provided is quality linen, towels, robes and slippers, toiletries, complimentary port and chocolates, a DVD library and bird seed (the most beautiful birds will land on your balcony for a feed, although the Kookaburras will prefer the bacon!)

Coorabell Cottage, a stunning converted cottage decorated in a modern contemporary style.

Guests arrive to a suite filled with the ambiance of soft lighting and relaxing music, cosy and warm in the cooler months and refreshingly cool in the warmer months, and can most certainly expect to relax, refresh and rejuvenate.

SkyHigh Observatory is just strolling distance from Arnica Views and Olinda Village is a 2km drive or walk away with English Taverns, beautiful restaurants, cafes and quaint shops. A short distance again is the Sassafras Village, also dotted with fabulous shops and cafes. Visit some of the magnificent gardens such as the National Rhododendron and Alfred Nicholas Gardens, historical icons such as William Ricketts Sanctuary and Puffing Billy Railway. The Yarra Valley region where lovers of world class wind and produce are indulged is a short drive.


Wine and dine, explore local attractions, quaint shops...

There is so much or so little to do whilst enjoying your stay at Arnica Views. Select a local restaurant or enjoy a gourmet platter in the splendour of the gardens. Perhaps curl up with a great book in front of the fire, stroll in the magnificent gardens dotted throughout the Dandenong ranges, or explore the many local attractions within the Dandenongs and Yarra Valley.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolute perfection! We stayed in the Loft. It was the perfect balance of space and coziness. The whole set up was so relaxing. Fireplace was magnificent! Beautiful surrounds. Supplies were very generous. Can't wait to come back again!
