Remote 70's style 3 bedroom Log Cabin in the Grampians with Mountain views
About Elyse Hamilton
Currently living in Melbourne. Excited to share this special place with other nature loving travellers.
Elyse Hamilton purchased this Cabin in 2017
Why Elyse Hamilton chose Wartook
We love the grampians especially as one of us is a mad keen rock climber. The remote location is what drew us to the property and its stunning views of the local mountains and rivers.
What makes this Cabin unique
The mob of kangaroos that come past the cabin almost every morning and night are the closest thing to neighbours we have. Waking up to Kookaburras and Galas takes some getting used to but its so nice to be reminded you are in the bush.

Western Grampians gem
It has a great location in the western Grampians with superb mountain and bush views in both directions from the house. Many birds and kangaroos visited during our stay. It is close to the national park for great walks along rivers and up mountains, many of which are away from the crowds. Thoroughly recommend it.
A nice bush accommodation
This is a typical bush accommodation surrounded by gum trees and native animals. Well located for Grampians visitors. Private, plenty outdoor space and good for bird watching. Though old and rustic, the house is clean and tidy. The only unexpected was the hot water which ran out at night after one shower and dish washing, leaving others to sleep without shower after a day of mountain hike.
Thank you for your comment. Glad you had a lovely time.
Apologies regarding the hot water. I have since learned the timer for the hot water goes to power save mode at 10:30pm so we have excellent hot water between 5am - 10:30pm. I’ll be sure to let everyone know before they check in.
Looking forward to having you back again soon.
We adored this property - from the wood fire to the creaking floor boards. It was fun exploring every corner of the block with the kids and our dogs.
This was our second stay at Bracken Lodge and it was very lovely and peaceful. A great bush getaway, it was exactly what we were after. The cabin and amenities are rustic, but the surrounds cannot be beat.
Lovely place in the middle of the Grampians!
Self contained and spacious location in the middle of Grampians
The Grampians National Park Peaks walking/hiking trails.
Hollow Mountain walk - 1hr round trip.
Its about 10min drive north on C222, the turn towards Mt Zero.
A great quick walk to an amazing view of the Northern Grampians. Its pretty steep and some parts of the walk are rocky but worth it when you get to the top. You have the amazing view of the olive plantations below. On your way back stop by the Grampians Olive Co. (Toscana). You can see how award winning organic olive oil is made and enjoy a tasting plate. They also have wood fired Pizza if you ask nicely.
Pinnacle Trail (backwards) - About 4 hrs round trip.
The Grampians staple, but still amazing. We recommend doing it back wards because you get the million steps out of the first then you walk against the traffic ( if any) on the way down. You start in the car park in Halls Gap, head up the steps to the pinnacle (the view) then work you way back down past silent street, cool chamber and grand canyon to finish with Venus baths. You loop around and end up in the car park in halls gap.
Pop into 'absolute outdoors' and buy a walking tours map of the tracks around Halls Gap. They can show you on the map if you want more info. http://absoluteoutdoors.com.au/
Zumstiens/ Fish Falls
1 hour round trip + swimming hole ( Great in summer)
Head south from Bracken Lodge on northern grampians road (C222) towards halls gap for about 10 minutes and park at Zumsteins car park.
The track runs from the car park and its an easy walk (you could do it in thongs) and you end up at fish falls. You can swim here and jump into the water, its pretty deep in one spot. Take some snacks/drinks and chill there for a while if its warm. The water is fresh and beautiful.
If you want more walking, you can continue on up the steps to Mackenzie Falls which is another hour's walk (roughly)
