Mongolian-Style Yurt with Spectacular Views in Victoria, AustraliaMyrrhee, Victoria (Australia) view map
Description of Glamping Units
Experience some of the best views in Australia from this Mongolian-style yurt in Victoria. The yurt is situated in the Victorian High Country on a working farm surrounded by natural bushland perched on top of a mountain in the middle of a vineyard in one of Victorias' wine producing regions—the silence is golden. Within 20 minutes, guests will find fine restaurants and wineries. On a cold day, just imagine sitting in the yurt by the fire looking out through the glass doors at the beautiful views. There is an outside kitchen plus a small gas stove for inside if it gets too cold outside. All utensils and linen supplied. There are hammocks and outside fire pit with cast iron pot and frying pan.
The yurt is five meters in diameter, divided into two sections by a curtain, and comfortably sleeps two people. There is an outdoor barbecue for cooking on and a small portable gas stove, or a small cast iron indoor stove which keeps it cozy in the cooler weather.
After driving along a steep dirt track which winds through natural bushland teeming with kangaroos, wombats, rabbits and deer, guests will burst onto a plateau with amazing views of the King Valley. Prepare for fantastic scenic walks along mountain ridges or through natural bushland.
In the morning, guests will hear the sound of many birds, including black cockatoos and beautiful King Parrots, and will often see the resident eagle hovering overhead. In the evening, they can enjoy the "sounds of silence" while sampling some of the regions best wines.
Towels, bedding, and everything else guests need will be provided, except for food. An outdoor gas heated shower and outdoor toilet with great views are all part of the glamping experience. The yurt is cool in summer and warm in winter, due to its thick lambswool felt liner. At night, guests can see the stars through the glass dome in the roof. There are double doors—one glass, to see the fantastic views, and the other beautifully painted wood.
There is plenty of space for outdoor parking. Public transport is limited. Having their own vineyard, the hosts have extensive knowledge of the industry. This will be a unique way for guests to enjoy the Australian bush and glamping experience Down Under. This property is not for those wanting a five-star accommodation but instead for those wanting a unique glamping, Aussie country experience! Read More
