Cosy home away from home
This was our second stay in two years. Beautiful views, well equipped kitchen, lovely cosy wood fire, table tennis a huge hit with the kids ... we’ll be back!
So glad to hear you enjoyed another stay at Barramunga Rainforest Retreat. You will be most welcome to return to sharpen up your "Run Forrest" times and table tennis shots!!! Thank you for your kind review. Gary and Carolyn

Serene country escape minutes from Forrest
We (4 adults 2 kids 4 & 7) stayed here for a long weekend of trail running and MTB riding and loved it. The house was warm even though it was freezing outside with heaters in bedrooms and a wood fire for the living spaces. The linen was also top quality and the place felt very clean. The games room was great for all involved and we played table tennis into the night. And the complementary coffee pods were appreciated by the coffee fiends.
Forrest, a mecca for trail anything, was minutes away but when you're on the property you feel like you're in the middle of nowhere without another human to be seen.
Gary was a fantastic host before, during and after our stay.
The driveway is slippery in the mornings, but my 2WD wagon got up it ok, though I'll bring an AWD next time so I don't dig up their drive.
We'll be back for sure, thanks Gary.
Thank you Tristan for your kind review of Barramunga Rainforest Retreat. We are glad you and your family enjoyed your stay and the serenity is certainly a great feature. The driveway is next on our list for improvement. Looking forward to having you stay in the future. Gary
Beautiful and peaceful surrounds.
Thank you for allowing us to use your beautiful home in the Otways. The location was outstanding and everything in the house was extremely well maintained and very clean. Wonderfully comfortable beds. The whole family particularly enjoyed the effective wood burner, the table tennis (also in excellent condition) and the walks on the property. Great place in a great area.
Only challenge was the steep driveway as our car slid on the coarse gravel when it went up, even on dry days.
Thank you Sharon for this wonderful review of Barramunga Rainforest Retreat. We are glad you enjoyed the family friendly facilities provided and the location being close to Forrest and the Great Ocean Road/Apollo Bay. We apologise for the steep drive way and have altered our property description to suggest it is most suited to 4wd or Awd or rear wheel drive vehicles if you go right down to the house. We are working on a permanent solution of sealing the drive way. We appreciate your stay with us.
Peaceful & secluded
Great base for exploring the Otways and surrounds. Very private, surrounded by beautiful forest. Owner a pleasure to deal with. Definitely recommended.
We appreciate your kind remarks about our property at Barramunga. It certainly is well positioned to enjoy the beaches at Apollo Bay, the Great Ocean Road and the waterfalls with the Otways. thanks for the recommendation too!
