We spent a night at the Sanctuary Park Cottages during our short visit to Yarra Valley/Healesville last week. To start with, the property is on a 20+ acre land which houses the 6 cottages as well as a beautiful lake.

This is the fourth time we've stayed here. The kids love it, plenty of room to run around. The playgound and goat feeding keep the kids occupied for hours. Cottages are fantastic, love the wood fire. The addition of the reverse cycle a/c is great. Will definitely be returning in the future. Michael.
