Aquila Eco Lodges
Reviewed 21 August 2011

We stayed here for 2 nights in June. The lodge was really big and clean. Fresh bread was made for us in the morning which was really tasty. The surrounding are is really makes you feel like you're in the country. Plenty of kangaroos to see on from the driveway leading to the lodge. We were even dropped off and picked up for dinner on the Friday night. Overall great weekend away!

Fantastic location if you enjoy walking, photography, golf or just want to 'chill out' with the added benefit of the Royal Mail Restaurant just down the road for the perfect meal.

The eco-lodges are beautifully located, with everything you need for your comfort. Harry and Iwona are the most helpful hosts and very knowledgeable of the local flora and fauna.

Stayed here for two nights over my birthday weekend in a treehouse. The eco credentials just show what can be done as the house had every amenity possible. The house itself was spacious well presented and even had a stereo with Ipod dock. We loved lying on the day beds looking up at the sky studded with millions of stars even saw kangaroos jumping past the house. The breakfast provisions, as eco as possible, with freshly baked bread, muesli, yoghurt, jam, the most delicious eggs, bacon etc etc, although extra are superb. Would like to spend a week here to fully unwind. Only a 15 minute drive to the Royal Mail Hotel and its excellent food. Would love to spend a week here.

We stayed there in December with our young children (4/6) for a few days in a Lofthouse. It was very relaxing as it is such a beautiful, quite place. We saw wild Kangeroos and Emus near the golf course - very exiting for us and the kids.
When Harry came along in the mornings with fresh baked bread - that was really the icing on the cake (THANKS a lot, Harry). We had really a great time and if we come to that area again we will definitly stay there again.

Surrounded by native bush at the southern end of the Grampians, the eco lodges are peaceful, secluded and perfect for a quiet getaway. We stayed in one of the Tree Houses, with a generous living area on the lower level and a mezzanine bedroom above. The living area had a huge picture window with comfy seating overlooking the bush - perfect for sitting inside and reading on a rainy day (and watching the odd wallaby hop past). The lodges boast impressive eco credentials - solar power, composting toilets, recycling facilities - but nothing is compromised: this is stylish, comfortable, high-quality accommodation.
