“Truly Paradise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 December 2006

These cottages are located in the Otway rainforest, about 9km off the Great Ocean Road in Apollo Bay. Turning off the Great Ocean Road, the drive takes you past farmland (featuring sheep, cows and alpacas) and then into the rainforest. The rainforest is truly magical. Lush canopies, giant mountain ash trees and numerous birds.

We stayed in one of the one bedroom cottages, called the Kookaburra. The cottages are very well kept. We had a full kitchen and living room, with satellite TV, and up the stairs to the bedroom. The bathroom has a two person tub (though the hot water tank isn't quite big enough to fill it) and a two person shower. The woodwork throughout the cottage is exceptional.

Sitting on the porch you can hear sheep and cows in the nearby pastures, and you can see wild parrotts, crimson rosellas (look like parrots except red and blue instead of yellow and green) and kookaburra. Kookaburra are only found in Australia and New Zealand and have a distinctive call, like a human laugh. It's great to hear them out and about in the morning and evening.

Walking trails are available to Paradise Falls, and Mariner Falls isn't far away. At night, the glow worms are out along the trails. The town's name is Paradise, and I don't think they are overstating their case!
