We recently returned from our third trip to Australia and I wanted to tell you of a great B and B. We spent 2 nights in Healesville at Wide Horizons and loved it. It was a beautiful place and our hosts did everything to make us feel at home. Our breakfasts were so special as Robyn was a terrific cook and offered many cooked courses which she did superbly. We were in the B and B but there also is the possibility of staying in a self catering cottage which was so nicely done that you would want for nothing. If you want to be treated royally and to visit a beautiful area of Australia, we recomment the B & B Wide Horizons run by Gary and Robyn.
