This unique rental can be found in Yambuk, Victoria, and is ideal for a family vacation. The rental is a Sydney City double-decker train carriage, built in the 1950s before being decommissioned in the late 1980s. The train carriage has been fully renovated to become a deluxe vacation rental.

A total of four guests can be accommodated as there are two queen-size bedrooms, and a sofa bed is located in the living area. In addition, guests will find a full bathroom in the rental that offers plenty of privacy. There is a simple kitchenette where guests can prepare drinks and snacks, although they will have access to a full communal kitchen just a short walk away.

The rental has a wonderful shaded deck where guests can enjoy relaxing in the sunshine and there is a large lawn in front of the carriage where younger glampers can enjoy playing.

In their private space, guests will find a small kitchenette but they are also welcome to prepare full meals in the communal kitchen located in a separate building on the property. It has gas hotplates, a microwave, a kitchen sink, and a bench-top. The hosts also provide plenty of pots, pans, and cutlery.

There are reverse cycle air conditioners in all the units, but they are controlled via a central system and not the actual accommodation.

The hosts provide all linens and towels for guests' convenience, along with toiletries in the bathroom.

Glampers will find themselves spoiled for choice with things to do during their stay in this property. The quiet setting is ideal for hiking and exploring, and the beautiful stone walls reflect the history of the area and provide a wonderful backdrop.

Budding fishermen will be in their element here, as they can enjoy freshwater fishing or casting a line down at the beach. The coast is also a great place for surfing and sunbathing on warm days.

In town, glampers will find a selection of shops and restaurants and there are also galleries if guests are keen to get to know some local artists. There are various lighthouses to discover along the coast that offer amazing views of the ocean. The water in this area is also home to whales at certain times of the year, so guests should be sure to enjoy a boat trip and try and spot some in their natural habitat.
